AT&T Inc said on Wednesday that it would sell five Android phones in the first half of this year, including from Motorola Inc, HTC Corp and handset newcomer Dell Inc.

These will be the first phones the second-biggest U.S. mobile provider will sell using the Android operating system developed by Google Inc.

AT&T will also sell two phones from Palm Inc, according to AT&T's mobile chief Ralph de la Vega, who was speaking at a conference on the sidelines of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

De la Vega said AT&T plans to offer Web-based applications to users of less advanced phones by forging a deal with Qualcomm Inc.
