Hold on to your hats, AT&T customers, because a new roadmap for your favorite (or maybe not so favorite) carrier has leaked, revealing several upcoming Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone 7 devices in the process. There aren't any exact launch dates given, but image above does give up some spec details on the various device, including screen resolution and camera megapixel count. There's a number of handsets listed on the spreadsheet, so we're going to make things a little easier to digest by breaking it all down bullet point style:
- Samsung Kapua SGH-i937: Said to be running Windows Phone 7.5, aka Mango, this device is likely the Samsung Focus successor that we learned about last month. Said to be packing an 800x480 display, 512MB RAM, 8-megapixel camera,1650mAh battery, and 14.4Mbps HSPA connectivity, we could see the i937 in Q4.
- BlackBerry Danava 9860: Also known as the Torch 9860. Also coming sometime in Q4.
- HTC Bunyip PI39100: Another Windows Phone Mango device. This time we're likely looking at the Eternity that may be debuting at HTC's September 1st event. Features an 800x480 display, 512MB RAM, 9-megapixel camera, 1600mAh battery, 14.4Mbps HSPA, and a Q4 launch.

- Samsung Singa SGH-i777: The folks at Pocketnow believe this could be AT&T's Galaxy S II. Sports an 800x480 display, over 1GB RAM, 8-megapixel camera, 1500mAh battery, 21.1Mbps HSPA, and a Q3 launch.
- Huawei Jengu U8652: Another Android 2.3.3 smartphone. More of a low-end device with its 480x320 screen, 256MB RAM, 3-megapixel camera, 1400mAh battery, 7.2Mbps HSPA, and a Q4 launch.
- Motorola Fuath MB865: This is that alleged Atrix 4G followup that we saw late last month. Packs Android 2.3.4, 960x540 qHD screen, 1GB RAM, 8-megapixel camera, 1785mAh battery, and 21.1Mbps HSPA (not LTE like a previous rumor claimed). Supposedly arriving in Q4.

- Samsung Gidim SGH-i927: This one's that mysterious Android slider that's leaked out a couple of times in the past. Said to feature Android 2.3.3, 800x480 screen, over 1GB RAM, 8-megapixel camera, 1650mAh battery, 21.1Mbps HSPA, and a Q3 launch.
- BlackBerry Maero 9360: Remember those new Curves that RIM announced today? Yeah, that's what we're looking at here. Coming in Q4 with 7.2Mbps HSPA connectivity.
There are a couple of notable devices missing from this document, including the HTC Holiday and Lead, but overall it looks like AT&T customers should begin bracing for a wave of Android with some BlackBerry and Windows Phone Mango thrown in for good measure. Quite a bit different from the days when the only Android phone AT&T had in its lineup was the Motorola Backflip, no?
