CES 2011

It looks like AT&T is setting itself up with a very solid Android lineup as their exclusive to the Apple iPhone ends this year. In addition to the HTC Inspire 4G we have the Samsung Infuse 4G that continues the Samsung Galaxy S line. The major differentiator for this device is the huge 4.5 inch Super AMOLED display and according to the information Engadget posted it sounds like the 4.3 inch crowd won't even notice the difference in their hand.

If you have seen the Super AMOLED displays on the Galaxy S line of devices then you know how Samsung can rock a beautiful display. The tops for smartphones has been 4.3 inches seen on HTC devices, but that was LCD technology. This new 4.5 inch display will be quite welcome with Samsung's Super AMOLED technology.

In addition to the 4.5 inch super display, the Inspire 4G will rock a 1.2 GHz Hummingbird processor, HSPA+ 4G data, 8 megapixel back camera and 1.3 megapixel front camera. It will likely launch with Android 2.2 and TouchWIZ UI. We don't yet know the pricing or availability of this device, but it looks like AT&T customers will have plenty of choices when Verizon adds the iPhone.
