According to PCMag, AT&T senior vice president of mobile devices, Jeff Bradley, said that the company plans to bring more Android and Windows Phone 7 devices to market in the coming months. First up will be a ruggedized Pantech slider that has a touch screen and keyboard. Bradley noted that its Windows Phone 7 devices were doing well, and it looks forward to offering the HTC HD7S in the future. Bradley said that the HD7S will shop with the Mango update pre-installed. Last, Bradley said that the company plans to lift its current policy which prevents Android handsets from installing non-Market apps. "W were genuinely concerned from a network bandwidth standpoint and a customer experience standpoint for not having any mechanism to take down a bad app," said Bradley. "And the only way we could do it at the time was relying on Google to leverage what [security] they had in [the] Android Marketplace. We took a lot of negative publicity for doing it, but it was 100% driven by a desire to be able to have the ability to support our network and be able to help our customers."
