AT&T Announces Three New Windows Mango-Powered Handsets

AT&T is getting all set to throw some more weight behind the Windows Phone 7 platform, especially once version 7.5 “Mango” comes out this fall.

In addition to updating all of their current Windows Phone 7 handsets – HTC HD7S, HTC Surround, LG Quantum and Samsung Focus –  to Mango in the next few months, AT&T will also be adding three more handsets to their lineup to become the carrier with the largest selection of Windows Phone handsets.  The new devices joining their ranks include the Samsung Focus S and Focus Flash, along with the HTC Titan.

The Samsung Focus S is a follow-up to the original Samsung Focus which went on to be the most popular Windows Phone handset in the United States.  This successor will feature a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.4GHz processor, 4G-capable speeds (HSPA+) and a thin profile at 8.55 millimeters. It includes a 1.3-megapixel front -facing camera and a rear facing 8-megapixel shooter.

Our own Killian Bell scored some hands-on time with the HTC Titan earlier this month, and he called it both “beautiful and blazing fast.”  The Titan earns its name by being the largest Windows Phone released yet as it has a 4.7-inch screen.  The lone new HTC in this batch will also be sporting a 1.5 GHz processor, an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and 16GB of built-in storage.

The Samsung Focus Flash will be the value phone of this bunch clocking in with a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screen, a 1.4 GHz processor and a 5-megapixel camera plus front facing camera.

Unfortunately we don’t have exact release dates for the phones or the update to existing handsets beyond “fall,” but our suspicion would be within a month or so.

What do you think?  Excited for any of the new Mango goodness?
