So one week ago we had the launch of the Microsoft Windows Phone devices from AT&T with the Samsung Focus and HTC Surround, and the T-Mobile HTC HD7. Not available at launch was the LG Quantum from AT&T, the only Windows Phone device so far that has a physical keyboard. LG has announced to day that the Quantum is now available online at AT&T.com. Priced at $499.99 without any commitments or $199.99 with a two year contract, you can now place your order.
So what do you think about the LG Quantum? The Samsung Focus has been the hot seller so far and the HTC Surround has been a pleasant surprise for a lot of folks including Mobility Digest’s own Jimski and Matt. Will see if the LG Quantum can find a place between the Focus and the Surround.
