Ma Bell hit the hip Hotel on Rivington on New York's Lower East Side to show its refreshed roster of gadgets and apps at its "AT&T Unwrapped" event Thursday night. (See OS Watch: AT&T Racks Up the iPhone Alternatives .)
Judging by the crowds, powerful digital cameras -- whether in a smartphone or wrapped around a tablet -- were the stars of the show. The Sony Corp. (NYSE: SNE) Xperia TL not only features a 13-megapixel camera and an LTE connection but also appears in the latest James Bond film, as the company didn't hesitate to remind us.
Samsung Corp. , meanwhile, showed off the Galaxy Camera, a full-featured digital camera that had a 4G mini Android client built in for sending videos or shots out, or just checking your email.
It wasn't all fun and games, however, as AT&T showed off its Toggle app, a program we first caught a glimpse of at the AT&T Labs some time back. This is an application that wants to capitalize on the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend by completely separating work and personal screens on the same device, secured via a PIN entry code for the enterprise side. AT&T says it is device and carrier agnostic. (See AT&T App Enables Work/Play Divide.)
