With the Inspire 4G, the Atrix phone/laptop hybrid and the Samsung Infuse 4G, AT&T now thinks it has gone from worst to best in its Android offering.
Talking to a technology company CMO is often like reading a press release, but AT&T CMO David Christopher is better than most and did shine some light on a new pride in their Android line today.
Specifically, AT&T (T) had the iPhone exclusively, they had the first/high end BlackBerry Torch, they were first with Windows Phone but up until next week, their Android line was the least impressive of the major four carriers. All of a sudden however, they have the most high end Android phones announced at CES in their pipeline.
Most skeptics would argue that AT&T limited their Android exposure to make Apple happy, and indeed it does feel a little strange that AT&T's Android coming out party occurs the same week as it loses iPhone exclusivity, but Christopher insists that it was just a "ramp up". I asked about the litigation between AT&T and Google's (GOOG) Voice product in iOS/ rural areas. "can't comment".
Fine. Let's talk Android...
