The avalanche of Android handsets has begun and there’s a new HTC slider in town, Lancaster, combining the looks of Magic (when closed) with the form factor of Touch Pro (when open).


Expect 6 months of exclusivity from AT&T, as far as this smartphone is concerned and if you’re wondering about the specs, here they are: AGPS, a 3 megapixel camera with fixed focus, microSD slot, Bluetooth 2.0 and triband EDGE/HSPA/AGPS connectivity. There’s also a 2.8 inch QVGA display on board (240 x 320 pixels) and a 1350 mAh battery.

This new Android phone will use an “unique HTC Social Messaging UI” and should hit the AT&T stores around August 3. OTA, video playback, USB 2.0 and multi-IM complete the features of this promising HTC smartphone.
