CES 2010: AT&T adds Android, Palm smartphones AT&T has announced it will soon begin selling Android and Palm smartphones in the U.S., a smart hedge for when the iPhone goes off exclusivity in the 6 months.
The company is the second largest carrier behind Verizon with 82 million subscribers, but most of its growth has been attributed to new subscribers flocking to the iPhone.

AT&T will have five Android phones, developed by Motorola, HTC, and Dell. The Dell Mini3, released so far only in China and Brazil, will be exclusive to AT&T, although it is unclear for how long.

Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega also noted that they would begin selling two Palm devices, although it is unclear whether they will be the Pre and Pixi or new phones not yet unveiled that will run on GSM and not CDMA.

Just curious as to why there's no buzz surrounding the HTC HD2 or Leo? The WM phone with the huge 4 inch multi-touch screen and sense interface. It's available unlocked on ebay now. Is the phone's lack of attention due to it being a wm not an android phone? Surely it's not that out of date already. I was just cruious is all, cause I remember seeing the HD2 on here during all the speculation as to what the Nexus was going to look like, and I read messages where other users were excited about it. I probably won't buy it cause of the lack of keyboard but still thought it looked like a cool phone.

I love my palm matrix with its awesome keyboard. But i would probably ditch it if the nexus one gets 3g support on at&t. But my contract expires on december so i wonder if they will be something better than the nexus by then. I'm sticking with at&t because is the only service that gets perfect signal where i work at.
