The Boy Genius received some bits of information that AT&T customers may be interested to know about:
- The BlackBerry 9700, which Simon wrote about 1.5 weeks ago, is coming to AT&T; no dates or prices have been announced.
- The Garmin Nuvifone G60, which launched in Asia over 2 weeks ago, and can be seen in Simon’s video from February’s Mobile World Congress, is coming to AT&T; no dates or prices have been announced.
- The HTC Tilt 2, which is a rebranded HTC Touch Pro 2, will be coming to AT&T, again no prices or dates have been announced. Will and Simon reviewed the device in an utterly epic 4 page article a month ago.
- The HTC Pure, which is a rebranded HTC Snap, is coming to AT&T. No prices and dates of course. Will wrote a hands on article about the Snap back in April after attending CTIA.
The lesson to learn here kids is that all of the above devices, except for the BlackBerry 9700, could have been could have been in your pockets right now if you purchased them unlocked instead of waiting for your operator to buy a few boxes from the manufacture, tweak the software, and then resell it to you with significant markup in a pretty AT&T box.
Update: Someone just sent Engadget a photo of the Tilt 2:
