On May 20th the new Focus 2 will be available on AT&T, and it’s a Windows Phone and it’s going to be cheap at only $50 with new 2yr agreement. The phone will be pure white in color, not sure what’s up with white phones lately, give me plain black and I’m happy. The Focus 2 is only 10.98mm thick and weighs in at 4.3 ounces and it has a 4” super AMOLED screen along with 4G of course and it has a 5mp rear camera and only a VA front camera.
Beginning May 20, customers can purchase the Focus 2, available in a glossy pure white, from AT&T for$49.99 with a two-year contract.

Only Windows Phone has Live Tiles, providing real time updates on your Start Screen including calendar appointments, emails or social media feeds. With Bing Search built-in, you’ll never be lost, as finding directions or a highly rated restaurant nearby is quick and easy. Microsoft® Office Mobile and SkyDrive® also allow you to create, save and access documents anywhere from the cloud to help maintain productivity while on-the-go.
The Samsung Focus 2, the latest addition to the Focus family (following the Focus, Focus Flash and Focus S), comes with a 4-inch Super AMOLED™ screen and 5-megapixel camera that makes taking pictures or shooting video in HD 720p a breeze. The front-facing VGA camera provides the ability for video chat.
