-I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor cnet.com and this is the Samsung Skyrocket for AT&T. The Skyrocket is one of 2 new AT&T phones to support AT&T 4G LTE network. However, only a few markets have AT&T's LTE speeds. The Skyrocket itself looks very much like existing Galaxy SII handsets. In fact, the interface is almost the same. The display as you can see here is nice and wide display. It measures around 4.5 inches diagonally. Because of its large display, the phone has a rather large footprint as well. It measures around 5.1 inches tall by 2.y wide. On the back of the phone has a very nice smooth finish, as well as the 8-megapixel camera and flash. Setting above the display is a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. As we said, the interface for the Skyrocket is very similar to other Galaxy SII phones. That means, it uses Samsung's Touchwiz interface over the existing android one. It shoots with android 2.3 Gingerbread, which is one of the latest versions of android. It also has quick office for creating and editing documents on the go as well as access to Samsung's media hub that let you rent and download movies. The Samsung Skyrocket retails for around $250 with the new 2-year service agreement with AT&T. The Samsung Skyrocket has a very impressive design and very impressive features and specs, but its most import feature which is its 4G LTE technology is only available in a few markets. If you don't, however, we would consider waiting for little bit until AT&Ts LTE hits your area. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been the first look at the Samsung's Skyrocket for AT&T.
