One of our ninjas just blessed us with a look at a portion of AT&T’s Windows Mobile road-map for the rest of the year. Quickly glancing at it we can see that the AT&T Tilt 2 will obviously launch in October, and refreshingly, the Samsung Epix and Samsung Jack will be getting upgrades to Windows Mobile 6.5 courtesy of upcoming maintenance releases. What’s more exciting, however, are the HP Obsidian and LG Monaco launches. While not brand new to the world, it’s nice to know that these Windows Mobile business-focused handsets will finally see the light of day come November. We know October is going to be full of 6.5 handsets like the Tilt 2 and Pure, and November shows no signs of slowing down either. Here’s a quick refresher on specifications for the LG Monaco and HP Obsidian and a larger shot after the break:

HP Obsidian:

  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA (850/1900/2100MHz)
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • Wi-Fi b,g
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • microSD slot
  • GPS
  • 3.5mm headset jack
  • Windows Mobile 6.5

LG Monaco:

  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA (850/1900/2100MHz)
  • Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
