While Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile have already launched HTC Touch Pro 2, AT&T is falling a bit (more) behind and launching the model as AT&T Tilt 2 on October 18th. The reason is simple and easy to understand: Windows Mobile 6.5.

AT&T wants to ride the WM 6.5 popularity wave, set in motion on October 6, as many handsets using the OS go live on this date all across the world. Also, many models will get updated to this version of the OS and there even was a rumour about the first Samsung Omnia available for such an update.

Don’t take October 18th for granted, as AT&T might change it, if bugs surface or the supplies can’t take the heat.
