AT&T's version of the HTC Touch Pro2, the Tilt 2, gets photographed
Yesterday we reported on a leaked list that showed a number of phones possibly heading to AT&T. One of the phones we focused on was the AT&T Tilt 2, which we wrote was the name that the carrier was calling its version of the HTC Touch Pro2. Now we have a photograph that seems to confirm that AT&T will be offering this sizzling hot device. In baseball, a player that hits a single, double, triple and homer in one game is said to have hit for the cycle. With handsets, being offered at all of the top four U.S. carriers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile) is hitting for the cycle, which the Touch Pro2 has accomplished.

The T-Mobile version is due out on Wednesday, with Sprint following on September 3rd. We have no possible launch dates for Big Red or AT&T, but we can't imagine those two would give the other carriers that much of a head start. By the way, note how AT&T's version of the Touch Pro2 eliminates the top row of numbers on the QWERTY keyboard and replaces them with a numbers pad and a dedicated row of function keys on the top row. Also, it does seem that the carrier has dropped the Fortress name in place of the Tilt 2.

Hmm, it looks okay, but I'd have to see more photos. I still like the Verizon and Sprint versions more, based on this one picture.

why would verizon be the first to get this phone? At&t has had more exclusive deals to roll out phones then any other carrier in the us starting with the 8125.. this one isnt exclusive but if I remember correctly At&t was the first major carrier to carry HTC phones.. with that said this phone looks like its going to be a major improvement to the Fuze.. the keyboard was too cramped up and it was way too bulky.. the picture gives a good first impression but it all depends what the UI is like..

I thinik your memory must have a hick-up, actually T-mobile was the first to have HTC phones way back in 2002. I'm sure it was a simple mistake, Oh and the 8125 wasn't exclusive, T-mobile also had it (the MDA). Nice try though!

Way to cripple the phone AT&T with the keyboard which is the MAIN selling point of this phone. And no 3.5mm jack? What were they thinking?

Umm, you do know that HTC made the phone and not AT&T right? If AT&T "cripples" anything, it maybe the UI? but IMO this phone looks pretty cool.

HTC made the phone of course, but I hope you don't think HTC just gave AT&T the one with the messed up keyboard and no 3.5 mm. This is AT&T's doing.

Why are so many ppl so lazy, how long does it take to hit the function key, what, like a 10th of a second. I'm beginning to notice on these comments that so many kids bitch about things that are soooooo minute. Stop crying, if you don't like the way the keyboard is set up, buy and unlocked one, save yourself the troubles... geeze...
