Pantech hasn't been going after the bigger manufacturers in the "superphone" category, at least outside of its home turf of South Korea. Until today, that is - at its CES press conference, AT&T announced the Pantech Discover, a flagship-class device that meets and in some cases beats the best that Samsung, HTC and Motorola have to offer. In addition to somewhat typical high-end specs like a 4.8-inch 720p screen, 1.5Ghz dual-core processor and 16GB of on-board memory, the Discover boasts a best-in-class camera (at least on paper) of 12.6 megapixels.

Welcome to Android Police's live coverage of the 2013 AT&T Developer Summit keynote. I know, a carrier keynote? Why? But you may be surprised to learn that AT&T used this event last year to announce six Android devices. Yeah, so this one might actually be kind of important. Definitely expect to see some new AT&T Android hardware (we aren't exactly expecting six devices, but hey, you never know), and follow along with the liveblog below. Read More
Update: More devices added - see the list below.
CyanogenMod 10.1 is continuing to bring Android 4.2 to more devices each day, and Samsung fans will be glad to know that nightly builds are now available for:
: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.
As always, the closer we get to the holidays, the more deals we see. It's anything but uncommon to see one-day super deals pop up just before Christmas, and today Best Buy is offering the Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon variants of the 16GB Galaxy S III for just $50 and 32GB for $99 (Verizon only) with a two-year agreement. T-Mo customers are stuck paying a bit more, with the 16GB handset coming in at $80 and 32GB variant for $130. Read More
Samsung, continuing its habit of timely code releases, today let fly open source kernel files for a handful of devices including Verizon's newly announced Galaxy Camera (EK-GC120), AT&T's Galaxy SIII Jelly Bean update (SGH-I747), and last but not least, AT&T's Galaxy Tab 8.9 Ice Cream Sandwich release (SGH-I957).
If you've been waiting to get your hands on a fresh batch of kernel source for these devices to tweak, develop, or ogle, now's your chance. Read More
In its constant effort to catch up with Verizon's ever-expanding 4G LTE network, AT&T has just announced a handful of new LTE markets, as well as expansion in two:
And earlier this week:
All these markets should be live as of today, bringing all the low-latency, super-fast LTE you can eat. Read More
- congratulations to [DC]_MAKER!
Want a chance to win a brand-new Galaxy S III from AT&T and Android Police? Today, you can! As part of the 'It Can Wait' campaign, we're giving away a red AT&T Galaxy S III complete with an anti-texting and driving accessory pack.
It Can Wait
Texting and driving is bad. You shouldn't do it. AT&T agrees, and to date, they've managed to get over a million people to sign a pledge promising not to text and drive. Read More
It's been a long time coming, hasn't it owners of AT&T Galaxy Tab 8.9's (SGH-i957)? All other variants of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 8.9 have been sporting Ice Cream Sandwich for weeks - even months in some situations. And it's finally your turn. I'm genuinely happy for you. Seriously. I am. You waited it out, and you deserve this.
But here's the thing: the update isn't coming OTA. Instead, you'll have to pull this one through Samsung's proprietary Kies application. Read More
Before you get too excited, let's start with the disclaimers. For starters, while yes, some users over on XDA managed to get LTE service working in very select AT&T markets, this probably won't work in your area. Also, this is not the intended use of your phone, so if you're not comfortable screwing with radios on your phone, you should probably skip the whole freaking out thing.
So, here's how it goes. Read More
Sprint and T-Mobile might have beaten the big boys to the punch, but now it's AT&T's turn to get its Galaxy S III updated to (almost) the latest and greatest version of Android. The 4.1.1 update has started showing up for users of the AT&T Galaxy S III (that's the SGH-i747) in the Samsung Kies update and sync software.
Update 12/4/2012: AT&T just announced the update, and it looks like it will indeed be coming only via Kies. Read More
