If you’re in the market for a new smartphone and you’re thinking about giving Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform a try, AT&T’s Samsung Focus 2 handset has officially been released, giving would-be smartphone customers an additional handset to choose from. For those wondering why the Focus 2 looks familiar, it is because it is none other than the SGH-i667 “Mandel” that many assumed would not be released since there has been no word about the device for quite a while. So how much will the Focus 2 cost you? A very affordable $50 but expect to be tied to a new two-year contract with AT&T.
For those wondering what their $50 will net them, expect to find a 4” AMOLED display, a front-facing VGA camera, a 5MP rear-facing camera that is capable of 720p HD video capture along with voice control and Bing integration, both of which are part of the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango platform. If you’re interested in getting your hands on the device, head on over to AT&T’s website to place your order.
