In the United States there is one carrier that seems to get more Windows Phone devices than the others. And that’s because they do. AT&T has had more Windows Phone devices in the past three years that T-Mobile, Verizon or Sprint. They’re rumored to be getting the upcoming Nokia Lumia 1520, but they might have another device on the horizon. But this one doesn’t come from Nokia, it comes from Samsung.
Over at Engadget, they caught the Samsung SGH-i187 trying to slip through the FCC silently. The device won’t wow you per se, but it’s always nice to see OEMs besides Nokia making a device. Unfortunately, it looks like this is a mid-tier entry that’s bound for AT&T. The bands included in the FCC documentation indicate those that would make this a device on AT&T. You’re also looking at a Snapdragon 400 processor inside, which is dual-core, and usually reserved for devices not looking to live on the bleeding edge of tech. Benchmark tests indicate this might be a Windows Phone device.
So, anybody interested in a middle of the road device from Samsung on AT&T? And do you think they’ll rehash an old Android design or create a new design for the device? Sound off below.
Thanks for the tip everyone!
