att probably wont get this being that the touch pro is going to be launched as their flagship device in Q4 2008. Htc devices typically sit as a flagship for about a year maybe a little more so its highly unlikely. The device is also major competition for the iphone and att is not going to let that happen. All we can do is dream, replace the sheep with touch hds... that's what I'm doing =)!

Sprint has a sneak peek page for their fall lineup here unfortunately the Touch HD is not on it.
