The Samsung Impression features a sliding, 3.2-inch touch-screen that's the nation's first with AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) technology. Which is to say: It looks good. Pricing will be $199 after a $50 mail-in rebate.

The LG Xenon is a bit of a scaled-back Samsung Impression. There's a slide-out QWERTY keypad (no AMOLED here), a 2-megapixel camera and, among other features, the AT&T Navigator GPS application. Users get a choice of black, blue or red for $99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.

With the LG Neon, AT&T offers something for the teen market—or anyone in need of a bolt of color. It comes in green or white and features a full keyboard, a 2-megapixel camera and access to IM, Mobile Email, AT&T Music and the mobile Internet.

Another cheery offering, the Samsung Magnet has a WAP browser and is ideal for chatting, texting and snapping pics. No 3G here, but that helps to lower the price—which AT&T hasn't yet made public, though it's promising something modest.

MetroPCS announced it will be offering the Samsung Finesse. The phone will run users $349, but there's no contract to sign, and for $50 a month they'll get unlimited voice and Internet. It features a full touch-screen, 150MB of memory, a MicroSD expansion slot and a 2-megapixel camera. The Finesse is equipped for 3G, though MetroPCS doesn't offer it; it plans to jump directly to LTE.
