Two new smartphones, built around the upcoming WinMo 6.5 OS, will be hitting AT&T before the end of the year. According to a road map Boy Genius leaked onto the Internet, both the HP Obsidian and LG Monaco are set for a November launch. There's going to be a lot of WinMo 6.5 coming down the pipe this holiday season, better start working on those Christmas lists.

The HP Obsidian looks like a pretty bog-standard mid-level smartphone so far. It's got Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi, a full QWERTY keyboard, a microSD slot, GPS, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and WinMo 6.5. It can connect through GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA (850/1900/2100MHz). We've got no further information on the hardware or pricing yet.

We know a little bit more about the LG Monaco. It's set to have Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, WiFi, a sliding full QWERTY keyboard, a 5 megapixel camera, and GPS. It should have the same connectivity options as the Obsidian.

Again, neither of these phones are due out until November. We should see the rest of their specs, as well as some screenshots and pricing info, leak over the next few weeks.
