AT&T’s two LTE-based 4G Android phones formally reached stores at Sunday. Announced last week, AT&T’s first 720p LTE phone, the LG Nitro HD, now available at AT&T online stores for $249.99 with a new 2-year contract, or $600 contract-free. LG Nitro HD comes sporting a 4.5-inch True HD AH-IPS display, 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 8-megapixel camera, a 4GB of built-in storage with a 16GB microSD included, and a microSD card slot that can take up to 32GB cards. The LG Nitro HD comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is on tap for early next year.
In addition to the LG Nitro HD, AT&T has also launched the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket in white, and it costs the same $249.99, or $149.99 in some markets. It keeps the hardware of its black sibling and has the 4.5-inch, 480×800 Super AMOLED Plus screen, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 16GB of storage, and eight-megapixel/two-megapixel front and rear cameras.
