Dallas - The first
Windows Mango (Windows Phone 7.5) smartphones for the U.S. will arrive soon,
thanks to plans by Samsung and HTC to offer Mango models later this year for the
AT&T network.

Samsung will
offer two Mango-based phones, the Samsung Focus S and Samsung Focus Flash, both
due sometime in the fall.

The Samsung Focus S is the
next-generation Windows-based Samsung Focus and features 4.3-inch Super AMOLED
Plus display, 1.4GHz processor, 4G-capable speeds, and thin profile at 8.55
millimeters at its thinnest point. Other features include 1.3-megapixel front-facing
camera and 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.

The Focus Flash will be the
lower-priced model featuring 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screen, 1.4 GHz processor,
5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and front-facing camera. The company did not
say whether it would feature 4G speeds, indicating the phone will likely be a
3G HSPA model.

In addition, the current Samsung
Focus will get a Windows Mango update in the fall.

The company did not release more
details.

The HTC Titan features 4.7-inch display,
1.5GHz processor, and 8-megapixel rear-facing camera. Details were unavailable.
