GeardiaryÂ claims to know AT&T’s device roadmap for the rest of the year, and they have some nice gems in there.
First, there is a new Windows Mobile Standard Pantech Duo with 3G, GPS and a 2 megapixel camera. The old Pantech Duo is also getting a WM6.1 update in October.
Next is a WM6.1 upgrade for the Samsung Blackjack 2 in July, followed by a WM6.1 Standard Blackjack 3 in Q4. The device features 128 MB RAM, 256 MB flash, a 3 megapixel camera, WIFI and of course 3G.
The Motorola Q9H 6.1 is also getting an upgrade due in July.
The best news is 2 Windows Mobile Professional devices coming in Q4. The AT&T Tilt 2 has Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Edition, Tri-band HSDPA (3.6); Quad-band EDGE, Qualcomm 528 MHz processor, 256MB ROM/ 128MB RAM, a 3.0 MP camera, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, PTT, AGPS and VSC. A WM6.1 update for the original Tilt is also coming in July.
The second Windows Mobile Professional device is from Samsung. The device sports Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Edition, Tri-band HSDPA (3.6); Quad-band EDGE, Marvell 624 MHz processor, 256MB ROM/ 128MB RAM, 2.0 MP camera, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, AGPS and VSC.
The last 2 devices are oddities – the HTC Touch Pro, the natural successor to the Tilt, does not, of course, Tilt, so could not be rightly called the Tilt 2, and the Samsung device is suggested to be the Omnia, but this device of course sports an impressive 5 megapixel camera. The only Samsung device which fits the bill would be the Samsung i780, which leaves another device to be the Samsung Blackjack 3.
Strangely, no upgrade on 6.1 for the Treo 750 is planned even though Palm already has it done, and has been one of the first to promise it when WM6.1 was announced.
