We are going to take a closer look in the next few days at the new Windows Phone 7 Phones that will be hitting the US market. As of now, we know that there are 5 WP7 phones coming to the US Market by the end of 2010 with more devices slated for the new year. Today we are going to look at the Samsung Focus.
The Focus is very much like Samsung's Galaxy S line of phones with its 4.1-inch capacitive Super AMOLED 480x800 touchscreen, 1Ghz Snapdragon (instead of the Hummingbird processor), 8GB of internal storage and 512MB of RAM, 6.5 hours talk time, HD video recording, 5MP camera with autofocus, and supports all major GSM/Edge/HSDPA/UMTS bands. The Focus will be available on AT&T with a "coming soon" release date and will of course be running Windows Phone 7.
The design of the Focus is nothing new, but is at least somewhat desirable. As the Samsung Galaxy S line has done so well in the US, I'd be willing bet that the Focus will do well too. And since Samsung has been wheeling and dealing lately with every carrier in the US, I would be willing to bet that we will see the Sprint and Verizon version of the Focus coming in the beginning of 2011.
I'd have to admit that the Focus isn't as lust-worthy as some of the other WP7 releases in the US as it is not very unique, but it still does garner some respect with the only Super AMOLED screen of the bunch. AT&T seems to be pushing the Focus as their premiere WP7 device on their site, so expect see a ton of publicity on this thing in the coming months.
