AT&T Comes Over to the Android Side

AT&T has announced a new line of Android-based smartphones for 2010. Dell, HTC and Motorola will make the five new devices, which are scheduled to be released during the first half of 2010.

Endgadget is predicting that AT&T will be using the Motorola Backflip, while Slashgear has confirmed that the Mini 3i will be the choice for Dell. The other three, Endgadget says, will most likely go to HTC.

The announcement is good for AT&T customers who wanted an Android phone but are held under contract with the company. Up until now, AT&T has offered the iPhone and a variety of Palm and Blackberry devices, but nothing operating the Android OS.

The company made the announcement today at CES where they also announced new initiatives to increase the number of applications available to their customers. To this end, the company is offering a new software developer kit and is looking to sign new distribution deals in order to offer its phone apps worldwide.

Nokia also announced today that its Ovi mobile application store will be available to AT&T customers in the United States.

Full details can be found in the company’s press release.
