AT&T’s first LTE devices to launch Aug. 21

AT&T announced Tuesday that its first LTE devices will hit store shelves on Sunday, as the company continues to roll out the 4G network in five markets this summer.

The two devices — the USBConnect Momentum 4G and AT&T Mobile Hotspot Elevate 4G — will be able to access the company’s network when the network goes live. Until then, the devices will be running on AT&T’s HSPA + network.

The Momentum 4G will be $49.99, and the Elevate will be $69.99, and will require a $50 data plan that comes with 5GB. If you overshoot your cap, it will put you out $10 per extra gigabyte.

If you already own the USBConnect Adrenaline, you can download a firmware update to make you LTE ready on Aug. 26.

The first five markets for LTE are Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. AT&T has said that it will add 10 more LTE markets by the end of 2011.

AT&T has also announced that a 4G version of the HP TouchPad will be available in time for “back to school” weeks — so they’d better hurry.
