On Sunday AT&T is going to add more markets to their 4G/LTE network. Along with Baltimore, Boston, Indianapolis and Athens Georgia we are also going to see the addition of the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, and the HTC Vivid. Until now, there were no “4G/LTE phones” for their new, faster network. The first device to make it onto AT&T’s 4G/LTE network was the HTC Jetstream Android tablet.
More after the break
On Friday, AT&T confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S II Sky Rocket and the HTC Vivid will both get Android 4.o, Ice Cream Sandwich. It seems AT&T didn’t want to put up two of their best phones around the time of the Ice Cream Sandwich launch and not make sure they were able to upgrade.
AT&T gave no firm date except to say “early 2012”, how early we will have to wait and see.
In the meantime, although they haven’t announced it yet, we are expecting more and more 4G/LTE markets to brought online at a rapid pace. We have heard that Austin Texas and New York City could still see 4G/LTE around Thanksgiving.
