Samsung Focus is available on AT&T priced $199.99 with two year contract.

Many reviewers are calling the Samsung Focus best Windows Phone 7 handset available in US because of its excellent AMOLED touchscreen and thin design. Gizmodo’s Matt Buchanan wrote in his review “Nine phones are impregnated with Windows Phone 7 at launch, and they're a remarkably uniform bunch. Most are recycled, reconfigured hand-me-down iterations of past models. It borders on inbreeding. Microsoft's tight control of Windows Phone hardware and virtual obliteration of custom software means it's that much harder for phones to stand out. But Samsung's Focus is the most eye-catching. It's the thinnest and lightest Windows Phone, and its Super AMOLED display is the best screen too. If you're going to get a Windows Phone, this is the one to stare at the hardest (even though we hear they're going to be in short supply).”
