HTC Tilt 2 reappears in AT&T’s system in preparation for launch

Are you an AT&T subscriber anxiously awaiting the day when you can finally make the HTC Tilt 2 your own? If so, good news first came back in August when we gave you a screenshot of the handset sitting pretty in AT&T’s system. Things got even better yesterday when we told you the highly anticipated phone is scheduled to drop in mid-October with Windows Mobile 6.5 in tow. Today, just for good measure, one of our eagle-eyed tipsters managed to unearth a new screenshot, this time with the Tilt 2 holding a slightly more established position in AT&T’s system. Our last capture simply showed entries for the standard Tilt 2 along with a No Camera version — this time around we can clearly see that AT&T has added insurance options for both versions of the Windows Phone, as well as entries for used handsets. We’re also hearing that training is set to kick off soon after having been delaying due to the bug we mentioned yesterday. That bug, by the way, involved an AT&T-specific addition to the software, meaning those of you upset by the two-week delay shouldn’t be blaming HTC or Microsoft. Mmm hmm.

AT&T to launch the Tilt 2 on October 18th? [UPDATED]

Oh no, we’re not done just yet ladies and gents. We already know October 6th is going to be a glorious day and now it looks like AT&T subscribers will be able to join in on the fun. Have you been feeling left out, wondering when AT&T would finally launch the HTC Touch Pro2 that is already available from T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon? Dry those eyes, as AT&T apparently had a good reason to hold off on the launch. According to our ninja, AT&T is preparing to launch the Pro2 — dubbed Tilt 2 by AT&T as we already know — on October 6th. Since the release will come after Windows Mobile 6.5 becomes a reality on the 6th, it’s a safe bet that the Tilt 2 will pack WinMo 6.5 right out of the box if all goes according to plan. Sure, it might have taken a while but AT&T fans can now take solace in knowing they’ll be rocking 6.5 while other Pro2 owners are busy trying to upgrade.

UPDATE: It looks like the target release date of the 6th will be missed due to a few bugs that still need to be ironed out and tested. The new target is apparently October 18th.

AT&T pre-launch lineup: BlackBerry 9700, HTC Tilt 2, Garmin G60, more!

One of our oh so trusty ninjas just hit us up with a fantastic-looking pre-launch list for AT&T. These phones listed are not launched yet but are reportedly coming soon. Just remember that coming soon could mean anywhere from two weeks to three months but they’re in the pipeline and now officially confirmed to hit AT&T. These include:

  • BlackBerry 9700 in charcoal
  • Garmin Nuvifone G60
  • HTC Tilt 2, HTC Tilt 2 without camera
  • HTC Pure (believe it’s the HTC Snap)

If we’re missing a couple on the list that you guys notice are unreleased handsets on AT&T, let us know in the comments and we’ll add it in!
