HTC Vivid and Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket go on sale, lead AT&T's march on LTE


You didn't expect Ma Bell to open its first LTE markets without tossing in a few 4G friendly toys, did you? Of course not, we told you as much last week -- but today things get official: The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and HTC Vivid (formerly known as the Holiday) are ready to take Ma Bell's new LTE nodes for a spin. Not much has changed since the last time we saw these phones -- the Skyrocket still knocks the Galaxy S II's screen size and processor speed up a notch (a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus Display and 1.5GHz CPU, for those of you keeping track), and the Vivid still has a 4.5-inch qHD display, 1080p HD video recording via an 8MP rear camera and a 1.2GHz CPU. What's new? AT&T is currently selling both handsets with an online discount, offering the Galaxy S II Skyrocket for $150 with a two-year commitment, and the Vivid for a paltry $99. If you're lucky enough to live in one of AT&T's emerging LTE markets, skip on over to the outfit's webstore and have a look.
