AT&T unveils Windows Mobile 6.5 powered Tilt 2 and Pure
AT&T has announced the new HTC Tilt 2 and Pure mobile devices which are running the latest Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system. The Tilt 2 (as seen above) features a 3.6-inch display, large QWERTY keyboard and 3.2 megapixel camera, while the Pure comes with a 3.2-inch touchscreen and 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with video capture.
AT&T today announced two new smartphones based on Microsoft Inc.’s new Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system, HTC’s Tilt 2 and Pure. AT&T said the HTC Pure is now available at AT&T stores for $150 after rebates, and the HTC Tilt 2 will cost $300 after rebates. Both require a smartphone data plan commitment and a $40 or higher voice plan in order to receive the rebates.
The HTC Pure is a touchscreen device, while the Tilt 2 combines a tilting touchscreen with a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard. Both offer a user interface that gives access to voice, text or e-mail by viewing a single contact.
AT&T said it will support the Windows Marketplace for Mobile for users to access applications from the Pure and Tilt 2, and users can even add their purchases from Windows Marketplace to their monthly AT&T billing statements.
The Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrade, announced on Feb. 16, is designed to enhance ease-of-use, with touch-friendly interfaces and a Internet Explorer Mobile browser that supports Adobe Inc.’s Flash multimedia technology.
AT&T said the Tilt 2 is targeted at business professionals with its high resolution 3.6-inch diagonal display and a larger QWERTY keyboard for heavy e-mail use. It also includes a 3.2 megapixel camera.
The Pure is designed for one-hand use, with a 3.2-inch diagonal touchscreen. It comes with a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with video capture. Details on exact size and weight of the devices were not available.
