There was no rest for the wired crowd this Memorial Day weekend. Engadget Mobile managed to get their hands on some AT&T documents, which were leaked to the press. These give some exciting new information about the upcoming HTC Lancaster, a new Google Android handset coming this August to the American market.
According to the specs, the phone will feature HSDPA connectivity, Bluetooth support, and have a 3-megapixel digital camera. The display, however, is just QVGA at 240×320 resolution—down from the other Android handsets, which have thus far supported 480×320 (HVGA) LCD screens. The phone is designed for social networking, and will be AT&T’s first venture into the Android market. But given that AT&T will not have the iPhone exclusively after next year, this is a good sign that AT&T is looking to expand its business, and further proof that the T-Mobile G1 wasn’t a one hit wonder for Android.
iPhone Information Leaked
It wasn’t just AT&T that let its guard down this weekend. Phone fan site iPhonehelp.in posted some screens that suggest the future iPhone sizes and pricing.
If this site is to be believed the iPhone 32GB 3G will be available for $335, while the iPhone 16GB 3G will be available for $205.

Finally, in the rumor mill is word that the next Nokia Internet Tablet, which has been known as the N900 or the Rover, will be coming to T-Mobile. The handset, which could turn heads for a number of reasons, is very much like the current Nokia N97. This new model will feature a higher resolution and the Maemo OS.
Rumored specs include:

- 3.5-inch 800?480 touchscreen (capacitive or not?)
- OMAP3430 500/600 MHZ processor
- 5 megaxpixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics
- WiFi (it should have Bluetooth as well)
- HSPA wireless 3.5G capability
- 32GB internal storage with expandable memory
If the rumors are to be believed the phone will be available for T-Mobile USA sometime later this summer, possibly in the August/September timeframe.
