Though this image has been unverified, and we advise you to take it with a pinch of salt for the time being, it certainly seems like it could be plausible. It is purportedly AT&T’s roadmap for the remainder of 2011, and it reveals devices set to launch in the third and fourth quarters. In there are devices from HTC, Motorola, RIM, Pantech and Samsung.
The list mostly consists of Android devices running the 2.3.3 and 2.3.4 Gingerbread operating system, but there’s also two new BlackBerry OS 7 devices, and two Windows Phone 7.5 Mango handsets. In case the roadmap gets into the wrong hands — like this! — each handset has been given a codename, and so it’s time for us to begin guessing.
Let’s look at some of the most interesting devices, starting with those from Samsung. We have the Kupua SGH-i937, Singa SGH-i777 and Gidim SGH-i927. The Singa and the Gidim could be two of the new Galaxy devices that were unveiled by Samsung earlier today, but as for the Windows Phone handset, that is supposedly a device that resembles the Galaxy S II but runs Windows Phone, rather than Android. SlashGear points to a Microsoft video that was released last month, which shows off the device.
RIM’s new BlackBerry devices, the Maero and the Danava, remain a mystery, but with refreshes made to the Bold, Torch and Curve already this year, it looks like these devices will be something entirely new. Another set of handsets to tide us over until the company’s QNX OS? The Maero has the smallest battery on the list and a low resolution display, which leads us to believe it’s a mid-range device that will possibly fit into RIM’s lineup just above the new Curve.
As for that Motorola Fuath, SlashGear believes it could be a 4G-capable update to the ATRIX:
There’s a Motorola MB865 “Fuath” that we’re going to give an educated guess on and say that it’s an ATRIX 4G refresh similar to what happened with the PHOTON 4G. This device could be called the ATRIX HD or Diana based on intel and photos of this possible future device.
Unfortunately there’s no mention of an iPhone 5 here, but it’s no surprise that Apple wouldn’t allow something like that to slip. This is one of the reasons why carriers get very little information on upcoming Apple devices until just several weeks preceding their announcement.
Based on our guesswork, with a little help from SlashGear, do any of those devices interest you? How about the new offerings from RIM?
