Impulse 4G

The new Att Impulse 4G smartphone is surely something to take a look at. The phone runs on the Android system released by Google. This phone is packed full of features, expandable content, and additional accessories. The phone is designed and made by Att and runs on the new 4G network making this phone a lot quicker then older 3g models. The phone itself is a great size for texting, browsing, and of course viewing livetv and video. On top of all that the phone itself is a 5mp digital camera with a built in flash - great for low light occasions like some birthday parties in dark restaurants for example. With so many different capabilities its hard to not fall in love with this phone! Oh...did I say it can become its own hotspot for other electronics such as a laptop? In this new age and time having a smart Android phone is one of the best things you can do, so why not pick the Impulse 4G?

Impulse Features

The phone itself comes with about 45 applications. All from the simple calculator to advanced gps tracking. While today we need to know where people are, what they are doing, and why were not with them the phone monitors twitter, facebook, and many other social media sites in live time. Thats right, no more do you need a random text message to say you got a direct message from twitter, or that your friend commented at your wall. Simply page over to where you have your facebook app and read it there. The phone makes it easy to add new content to the web though many different ways. You can even direct upload pictures and video to facebook for example while your taking them. I remember with my old phone when I had to transfer an image or video from the phone to a memory card and then into my computer. Once there I would have to wait to upload them to facebook or where ever I wanted to put them...not anymore! Just do it and its done. The phone itself can give you more information on the world around you by scanning the building, and it can even tell you what way your currently facing. The uses for the phone are endless as more and more apps become available.

Why Android Network?

Android offers many different apps, wallpapers, movies, games, and much more to help out in your daily life. The amount of content is incredibly vast for all age groups, likes and dislikes, and all trends. The Impulse 4G easily runs all these different apps. The download times of this content are also extremely short due to the 4G speeds. Overall Android is the number 1 adaptable marketplace. Att Mall, Apples Market, and other various markets are slow to adapt and dont contain as many features as the Android Market.

Att Impulse 4G Smart Price

This Att Impulse 4G Smartphone retails for $375 but if your upgrading or just starting a new 2 year contract with Att you can get this phone for $29.99!!! Its an awesome deal that helps people who can't afford expensive phones on top of the already expensive monthly plans. Not only did this allow me to upgrade to the Android and Smartphone era, it allowed me to insure, buy protection accessories, and have a sense of pride in my cellphone again! Adding up the monthly increase+retail phone+screen cover+grip case all would have came with tax to be around $880 for the 2 phones we got. Instead the grand total for the first month with activation fees and the accessories comes to be only around $190!!! Thats so worth it seeing as my old phone didnt work that well at all and that this phone is on the cutting edge with 4G. Think of it this way, its the first phone that people want that is still advertised on tv and I get to finally say "Yup, thats my phone!"
