RED announces AT&T, Verizon (US) & Telcel (Mexico) as Hydrogen One Carrier Partners

Red Hydrogen One with holographic display

AT&T announced Thursday that it will be selling the device come summer. Only AT&T is giving the public a first look at the future of entertainment through a demo at AT&T SHAPE at Warner Bros.

Updated 2:14 p.m. PT to correct full name of phone ("Hydrogen One", not just "Hydrogen").

We still don't know exactly when RED Hydrogen One pre-orders will start being fulfilled, let alone when sales are supposed to begin for new buyers, but both Verizon and AT&T are throwing their weight behind the mobile "4-View holographic" project. If you're interested, AT&T asks that you first register for the event to ensure a spot is saved for you. Besides the high-end specs inside, the Hydrogen One will be capable of capturing 4-View video that enables users to look around and behind objects that have shot with the camera.

We do know that it will be available on the Verizon Up rewards program, so every $300 spent on monthly bills can be turned into prizes - from VIP tickets to everyday rewards.

Besides the holographic fare, the folks at RED say you'll able to view stereo 3D content, as well as virtual reality, augmented reality, and yes, regular 2D material too. However, the question still remains of whether or not consumers are ready to throw down $1200 for a phone made by a company they may or may not have heard of before.

It's still not precisely clear when the Red Hydrogen One will finally appear. You can also add different modules for different functions and features that will help in movie-making and content-creation. Neither outfit commented on pricing although as you may recall, Red offered the device via pre-order for a limited time starting at $1,295 for the aluminum version and $1,595 for a titanium-clad example.
