AT&T’s senior vice president of mobility and consumer marketing has mentioned that they will not be offering LTE handsets until late 2011. Starting out, they will only offer laptop dongles and mobile wifi hotspots, just as every carrier has done in launching their new 4G networks. The launch is on schedule for this summer still, but they will only start out in five markets (Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio) and there’s no telling how fast expansion will be. We didn’t expect AT&T to launch phones right away so this doesn’t bum as at all. In actuality, we’re rather pleased at how quickly we’ll see LTE handsets after the network launches. In the meantime, AT&T says it will continue to improve their 3G network while LTE phones mature enough for primetime. [via PhoneScoop]
