There’s only three phones that use AT&T’s 4G LTE network so far: the upcoming LG Nitro HD, the HTC Vivid, and the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. You can get any of them in any color you want, so long as you want black. But come December 4th, you’ll have at least one more choice, as the Skyrocket follows its Galaxy S II predecessors in offering an arctic white option.
The Skyrocket soundly beat its launch partner the HTC Vivid in our head-to-head review, making it the best choice for anyone looking for LTE speeds on AT&T. That’s not to say that the Vivid is without its charms, but the Skyrocket’s brighter screen, better battery life and screaming 1.5Ghz dual-core processor make it one of the best phones available for AT&T right now. That might change when the LG Nitro HD lands, also on December 4th, sporing a gorgeous 720p IPS display – we’ll see.
The white version of the Galaxy S II Skyrocket is otherwise identical to its more somber progenitor, and will come in at the same $249.99 price tag. If you’re tempted by the glossy new facade, make sure to check out our extensive review. Don’t need LTE? You can save a few bucks on T-Mobile with a white version of the original Galaxy S II.
