AT&T Intruder
(AT&T Android Product Manager Dante Martin)

We brought you the first picture of the AT&T HTC Liberty -- which may well be named the Intruder -- and now we can bring you a video teaser of the phone. It's clearly a small HTC phone running Sense, and it definitely lines up with the Liberty render we stripped out of the ROM, with the Evo-style buttons and Incredible-style trackpad. Can't tell too much otherwise, except that the microUSB port is on the bottom of the phone, and the phone itself appears to be pretty small, which could line up with the 320x480 screen resolution.

The video itself is pretty interesting, too -- check it out after the break -- showing how AT&T tests its phones long before they ever get into your hot little hands. And that they did so with an as-yet unannounced Android phone is very cool, too. Nicely done, AT&T. Thanks, Will!

Dante as AT&T's Android Product Manager you need to grab someone by the short hairs and tell them you need high end Android devices! Either that or forcefully remove Steve Jobs' iPenis from your CEO's ass.

Hmm, Take an HTC Legend, chop off the bottom chin, change the frame to the standard hard plastic, move the track pad to the center of the bottom row of buttons, and voila, you have this phone. I'm convinced that's the same screen as the Legend has.

I'm convinced that it IS the Legend (processor, screen, memory, etc)...uglified :/
Sorry, brought up to AT&T specifications :/

Looks like it may have the size and functionality similar to the LG Ally on VZW. Decent mid-range smart phone, but certainly lower in performance than the high-end android handsets.

That was one hokey video. OK boys and girls, next up is Cookie. Cookie is going to tell you that we really give a darn about QA. And we all know the Cookie never lies. Now don't you feel better about the amount you pay for our service knowing this? I knew you would!

Yea da fone is aiight but I got da htc evo4g n its awsome da screen is big n its fast so #1 fone out so far lets see wat dey come up wit next

Maybe the reason why there are not more Android phones with AT&T is because they are not passing the required testing.

Considering how few phones AT&T has it's hard to believe they have full time employees testing new phones. Either that or most phones aren't up to their standards.
