AT&T recently unveiled three Android-powered Samsung smartphones: Galaxy Express, Galaxy Rugby Pro, and the much-awaited Galaxy Note 2. In addition to the smartphones, customers will also find Samsung's tablet Galaxy Tab 2 on offer from the carrier. AT&T announced the addition of Samsung devices to its portfolio on Sept. 28.
"AT&T customers have access to the nation's largest 4G network, covering 275 million people. AT&T has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul. That means AT&T customers are able to enjoy a widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G experience on their compatible device as they move in and out of LTE areas. With other carriers, when you travel outside of their LTE coverage area, you may be on a much slower 3G network," stated the press release.
