Samsung Focus 2 is an LTE Windows Phone for just $49.99 on-contract


AT&T has been Microsoft's premier carrier for Windows Phone 7 devices, which is apparent by its release of the Nokia Lumia 900. That device already calls AT&T's LTE network home; now, Samsung's Focus 2 is ready to do the same. 

The Focus 2 is the third device in Samsung's second-generation Focus line, following the Focus S and the Focus Flash that were released in November of last year. Unlike those devices, though, the newest Focus will run on AT&T's LTE network. 

As far as hardware goes, the Focus 2 will include a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, a 5MP camera on the back and a VGA shooter on the front, and 8GB of internal storage; unfortunately, it's not expandable since Samsung has taken out the microSD card slot.

The white Focus 2 will be available for $49.99 on-contract on May 20th. It's AT&T's third LTE Windows Phone – the first two were the HTC Titan II and Nokia Lumia 900. 

Its price screams budget phone, and that's exactly what it is – even if it is an LTE phone. Still, it looks like a nice device for the budget-minded Windows Phone fan. Let us know in the comments if you're planning on heading to your AT&T store on the 20th to get one.
