Windows Mobile 6.5 rolls-out tomorrow, so expect to hear about a bunch of new handsets this week. Getting in early, AT&T has gotten official with its versions of HTC's TouchPro 2 (Tilt 2; shown left) and Touch Diamond2 (Pure).
Both phones use an enhanced TouchFLO 3D interface on top of WinMo 6.5, and here's how each breaks down:
The Tilt 2 is a QWERTY slider with "tilting" 3.6-inch WVGA touchscreen, dual speakers/microphones (with noise cancellation), and 3.2-megapixel camera. AT&T says it will be available in the coming weeks for $300 (after $50 rebate, with 2 year contract).
The Pure updates the Diamond2's look, and has a 3.2-inch WVGA touch screen, 5-megapixel autofocus camera, expandable memory, accelerometer, and ambient light sensor. It's available now for $150 (after $50 rebate, with 2 year contract).
Four New Opera-Powered Browser Phones
Samsung Mythic: A 3.3-inch touchscreen-only handset with Samsung's TouchWiz interface and access to AT&T Mobile TV, AT&T Navigator, AT&T Social Net, and att.net. Available in black come November for $200 (after $50 rebate; with 2 year contract). Pictured far-left.
Samsung Flight: A Vertical QWERTY slider with touchscreen geared for one-handed instant messaging. Available in red or silver in November: $100 (after $50 rebate; with 2 year contract). Pictured center.
Pantech Reveal: Arrives on October 18, and has a candy-bar style slide-down QWERTY keypad underneath a dedicated number pad. The Reveal is also 3G and GPS-equipped (with AT&T Navigator). No pricing/availability yet. Pictured far-right.
Pantech Impact: OLED touchscreen with haptic controls (you'll feel a soft, tactile buzz). Flipping the phone sideways reveals a QWERTY keyboard and second display. Will have tri-band 3G and be available in pink or blue. Again, stay tuned for pricing/availability. (Not pictured).
