AT&T outs ATRIX 2, Samsung Captivate Glide and three more ‘Droids

AT&T has announced a full five new Android devices, the Motorola ATRIX 2, Samsung DoubleTime, Samsung Captivate Glide, Pantech Pocket and AT&T Avail, taking the carrier's total 'droid-powered count to 19 this year. The ATRIX 2 and the Captivate Glide are the two most interesting, each packing 4G HSPA+ for up to 21Mbps downloads (network depending) along with 1GHz dual-core processors, 8-megapixel cameras with LED flash and Full HD video recording, and a 4.3-inch qHD display on the Motorola while the Samsung makes do with 4-inches of WVGA Super AMOLED.

Still, the Captivate Glide does offer a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, paired with 1GB ROM, 1GB of RAM and a preinstalled 8GB microSD card. The ATRIX 2 lacks the integrated 'board but can be paired with Motorola's Lapdock 100 notebooks-style docking station, and has 8GB of internal storage and 1GB of RAM.

The Samsung DoubleTime, meanwhile, is an Android flipper, with a flip-out QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.2, a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen and a 600MHz processor. There's 260MB of memory and triband UMTS. As for the Pantech Pocket, that offers an unusually-proportioned 4-inch SVGA (600 x 800) display, Android 2.3, 5-megapixel camera, around 600MB of internal storage and a memory card slot, along with Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and triband UMTS.

Finally there's the AT&T Avail, a prepaid budget device on the GoPhone network, offering a 3.5-inch touchscreen, Android 2.3 and a 5-megapixel camera, along with triband UMTS, WiFi, 512MB apiece of RAM and ROM and a 2GB preinstalled microSD card slot.

No word on pricing for any of the devices at this stage, nor specific availability. AT&T originally expected to release 12 Android devices in 2011, so it's already ahead of its target. Still, the carrier says there are more to come before the year is through.
