LG's Nitro HD Is AT&T's Third LTE Smartphone

As the holiday season smartphone Relevant Products/Services war begins to heat up, AT&T Relevant Products/Services is breaking out the Nitro.

The tough-sounding Nitro HD Relevant Products/Services from South Korean electronics giant LG has a 1.5 gigahertz dual-core processor and 4.5-inch True HD Advanced High-Performance In-Plane Switching display, and is able to access Relevant Products/Services AT&T's brand new long-term evolution network Relevant Products/Services for high-speed, 4G Relevant Products/Services data Relevant Products/Services.

Look for it online or at AT&T-owned stores Dec. 4.

That makes three LTE smartphones for AT&T, after this month's HTC Vivid and Samsung's Galaxy SII Skyrocket, since the nation's second-biggest carrier launched the LTE network in September. It recently expanded to 15 markets, with plans to reach 70 million Americans with 4G LTE by year's end.

Bang For Your Buck?

The Android Relevant Products/Services-powered Nitro HD isn't cheap, running $250 with a two-year voice Relevant Products/Services and required data contract. That's the same price as the Skyrocket but $50 cheaper than the Vivid.

Rival Verizon Wireless also charges a premium price for some of its LTE phones, with Samsung's Droid Razr and HTC's Rezound selling for $299.

But AT&T says it's worth the cost Relevant Products/Services, citing the LG Nitro HD's slim 5.3"x2.7"x.4" design, 8-megapixel HD camera and 20 gigabytes of total memory Relevant Products/Services (4 GB on-board and an included 16-GB microSD). It also features Wi-Fi Relevant Products/Services Direct technology and DLNA features for wireless Relevant Products/Services HD content-streaming options.

"With the LG Nitro HD as one of our last smartphones to arrive in 2011, we're closing out the year with a bang," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, devices, AT&T Mobility and consumer markets. "We've seen others get close to a true HD experience on Android super phones this year, but Nitro HD is the one that does it right."

Fast Pace

Three LTE phones in one month is a sharp pace for AT&T in catching up with top rival Verizon Wireless, which now has seven LTE phones -- including LG's Revolution, Pantech's Breakout, Samsung's Stratosphere and Droid Charge and Motorola's Droid Bionic -- as it approaches the one-year anniversary of its network. At this stage in the game, Verizon only had HTC's Thunderbolt on its 4G shelf. (continued...)
