    Yes, the Motorola Olympus/ Terminator. It will go to AT&T first and then to the rest of the carriers. You just have to wait for the iPhone to go to Verizon so AT&T can wake up and see that Android is owning everything right now.

    There is some always new in the horizon, however it may not always be good, which is very common with AT&T.

    And to the Iphone comment. If you look at anyone who actually works for att we push android more then anything. We all stray away from the Iphone because it dose suck. Also to the Virgin part. You have to be kidding me. Att has been popular way before the Iphone came out and will continute to be that way. Dose second top rated phone company and second most subscribers ring a bell at all. Also ATT has Android Devices in the works. If you forget some companys cant get alot of the phones released or get their hands on them yet because there was an old exclusive offer that is only coming out effect in December. So all the carriers will be able to get there hands on more Android devices not just the ones that they have been limited to. But then again what do I know I dont work in the cell phone buisness or anything and none of my friends do either X} (LG Product Specalist, Moto Product Specalist, LG Corperate Trainer, Blackberry Product Specalist all just to name a few who I am friends with oh and me ATT Sales Rep and phone reviewist and blogger)

    no offense,
    but both of those phones kind of suck.

    im just guessing the op meant a kickass phone.
    i hope they get a badasss one soon. i originally was going to get the nexus one til the end of my contract. but by the time i had the money it seemed outdated and my contract was basically up.
    so i switched to the epic and never looked back.

    but now i am if they get the terminator with good reviews haha

    It is extremely simple, you and your co-workers may not want to sell the iPhone, but AT&T sure as hell wants you to. I am sure you hate the iPhone for the reasons I hate it as well, however AT&T will never get a high end Android device until Verizon or T-Mobile or SOME OTHER carrier gets an iPhone. Right now the iPhone is "hip" so people purchase it knowing it will only work on AT&T. Now AT&T has another sucker locked down for 1-2 years of awful tiered data packages. Once people find out Verizon has iPhones, with superior coverage and much wider variety of tiered plans( they are now testing out what Sprint has, 500 or so minutes, unlimited text and data for I believe $70).


    So you may not want to sell the iPhone, but if you want to stay in business, AT&T needs to sell iPhones. If people want a dumb phone they go to T-Mobile or Verizon, because they have much nicer tiered plans(500 minutes unlimited texts etc. etc. for not even 50 dollars, family plans, better coverage).

    As of now though, AT&T has about 5 Android devices (Aria, Captivate, Flipout, X10, and some other device I dunno what it is). All of these devices are really not outstanding in any way(maybe the captivate, for its abilities to get 2.2 and a beautiful screen and excellent processor, regardless T-Mobile has the Vibrant which isn't locked down). If you want a real untampered "Android" experience(quotes because nowadays no device has pure stock goodness) then any other carrier besides AT&T will do.
    Devices: Samsung Nexus S 4.0.1(alpha, of course), Samsung Vibrant 2.3.5 CM7 w/ Glitch Kernel v13, broken HTC Dream, and a Google Cr-48 with Ubuntu 11.10

    I have had ATT since 1999. It is by far the best carrier here in TX. Why? It has the best coverage. You can get 3G basically anywhere. While other companies claim to have faster networks or whatever, none of that matters because in TX it's all about coverage. Those other networks reach like 5miles off of the interstates. They are basically worthless unless you live in Dallas-Fort Worth or Houston. If you do, then you're OK. Otherwise you best get ATT dawg.

    By the way, my Aria can do everything the other phones do, and still fits in my pocket comfortably. Of course it lacks the front facing camera, but so do most phones.

    Only known pics of Motorolas Olypus Whether or not this will be the final design we will have to wait and see.



    As for all the AT&T hate. They have the best signal coverage in my area.
    So verizon has the coverage across the US. Who cares?
    I don't care about that. I care about the area where I live and here AT&T has the best service out of the big 4.
    Unless you've an iPhone. for some reason people with iPhones always have issues and they always blame AT&T, yet everyone with AT&T without an iPhone has no issues....... Go figure.

    There is no hands down best carrier. Only a best carrier in your area. Why would someone from eastcoast care that another carrier having better coverage in the south, mid west or in the west? lol You choose what's best for you, not what's better for someone else.

    Back on topic, I would really like for AT&T to start getting some more top tier Android phones. The have the Galaxy and thats about it.
    They have the Dell Streak, but you can only get that through Best Buy or Dell. It's an AT&T phone yet you can't even get it through AT&T?!?!
    It seems aslong as they have the iPhone every other carrier will be getting the better Android device while AT&T passes up on them.
    I can;t wait until the the iPhone is nolonger exclusive. Maybe then AT&T wil open their damned eyes.

    [edited]
    I may have spoken too soon. Seems a new pic for the Olympus was just released today.
    Sadly, it's design has been changed to look like every other phone out there.
    Too bad. I liked the old design better. Now it just looks meh so far. Need a side and rear profile shot now.

    ^ Thanks for all the pics man. I agree it looks a little more "normal" and "regular" now instead of what appeared to be kind of unique, but, guess I'll wait for all the specs to come out to see if I want it over the other Android offerings. I was hoping this would finally be an HTC device that was high-end for AT&T...every day it seems that will never happen, lol.


    P.S: Is that an LED light over there? hope so

    I cant wait for this phone to be released. Definantly is something a lot of people are wanting and I cant wait for it. From what has been passed down from the grape vien this is supposed to be the top running phone on ATT right before the Captivate. It is something exciting. @jonneh I am hoping HTC comes out with something real good for a Android device also. They had the Aria which was an alright phone and they have the Windows 7 HTC Surround but thats about it for ATT lets hope something comes soon.

    AT&T has had an HSPDA+ network up and running for years now. I know it's not 4G, but T-Mo seems to think it is and advertises it as such. lol
    All AT&T needs to do is release phones that actually utilizes it.

    I also am awaiting HTCs release of a high end phone for AT&T. Currently my main phones are a Streak and an Aria (busted screen tho) and I've a Magic around here somewhere............
    I wont buy a Samsung. (too much bad history with them and their phones)
    I refuse to buy an LG ANYTHING. I remember back before they were "Life's Good" and they were known as "Lucky Goldstar, They have been making shoddy and cheap products since I was a kid and it seems they still do.... but their marketing skills sure have improved. "Life's Good" huh? How easily people forget. lmao
    Moto seems to only make gimiky wierd products for AT&T while they make monster devices for everyone else..... I don't get it.

    Come on HTC. Make me proud of you again. I've been buying your products since back when you made them for everyone else before you started putting your actual name on them. The BlueAngel was one of my favorite phones ever. =)

    I also have been with ATT since 1999, and their network is the best around my area as well. I have the Captivate *since launch* and love this phone, while it is not perfect even with a UCJI6 Froyo leak but it is a great phone! I was worried about getting the Samsung Captivate because I had some issues with a Samsung Sync when they first came out, horrible battery life, rf reception was horrible. When I got the Captivate, I was blown away, better rf reception then my Bold 9000, similar battery life to my bold 9000 and better user experience then the bold! Sure I wish the htc desire or even the desire hd would come out but for now the Captivate is an awesome phone to own even with it's lagginess at times but it has never dropped a call like friends of mine who has the iPhone!

    HTH,

    Similar battery life to the Blackberry Bold 9000? You can not seriously be making that statement. You're comparing a phone with half the CPU processor (uses way less battery) and less than half the screen size (uses way less battery) to the Captivate, and saying they have similar battery life. I don't believe that one bit. It just wouldn't make any sense, logically.

    Blackberry's have been known for their keyboards and excellent battery life. However, it is a trade-off. You get fantastic battery life but a much smaller screen and a crappy processor. With the Cappy, you get a huge, brilliant, beautiful 4" screen with a snappy 1GHz processor, but much less battery life compared to the Bold.
    It is just a known fact when you're transferring from one phone to the other, don't you think? Or am I wrong?

    By the way, I have a Bold 9000 right here in my lap. Wish I had a Cappy too...but, would rather wait for a high-end HTC android device to hit AT&T, which is increasingly seeming like just a dream that will never come every day lol.
