National wireless carrier AT&T on Tuesday simultaneously announced five new Android smartphones, none of which are flagship devices for the carrier, but each of which answers the needs of a specific type of phone user.
For the Power User: Motorola Atrix 2
Following up on last year’s breakthrough Motorola Atrix 4G, AT&T announced the Atrix 2 which is equipped with a 4.3″ (960×540) screen, “4G” HSPA+ connectivity, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8 megapixel camera and front-facing VGA chat camera, enterprise-grade IPsec VPN, microSD encryption, and support for Enhanced Exchange ActiveSync. Like its predecessor, it also supports the Lapdock accessory, and has the Firefox webtop environment.

Motorola seriously changed the mobile phone industry in the 2000’s with the RAZR. The low-profile flip phone sold more than 110 million units, spawned several successful follow-up models and imitations from competitors, and generally altered how we perceive “sexiness” in mobile phones.
It has had an excellent run, and continues to sell to this day. According to Neilsen Media, the RAZR was the third most popular mobile phone on the market last year with 2.3 percent of mobile subscribers owning one.
T-Mobile adds more allure to its 3G phones with this latest from Sony Ericsson – the Sony Ericsson Equinox (earlier named T707). Otherwise a basic flip-phone in functionality, the Equinox carries some eye-catching bling to push itself to the limelight amongst the other established clamshell models in the market. First is the stylish exterior – after you update your T-Mobile favorites list with your caller friends’ circle, the shell lights up to indicate the identity of the caller in one of the five available colors. Say “amber” for good friend Joe and “amethyst” for avoidable Erica. I say, a thumbs-up for people with good memory, and more confusion for those without. Other than that, the external shell also contains an 128 x 36 OLED screen that functions only when you get an incoming call.
