Combining the convenience of a tilting touch screen with the practicality of a slide out full QWERTY keyboard, the HTC Tilt 2 smartphone from AT&T keeps you connected with friends, business partners and world events with its ultra-fast HSDPA 3G cellular connectivity and the revamped Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system. It intelligently arranges your conversations by people, not by the application that you use to communicate with them. So when looking at your contacts, you can now see a history of your conversations in whatever form it took place, quickly and easily--even Facebook updates.
The updated Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system includes a revamped Internet Explorer Mobile web browser and the ability to see alerts even if you're on a call or have password-protected your phone. You'll stay easily connected to your business and personal data on the go with support for a wide variety of email accounts as well as the ability to edit Microsoft Office documents. And with the new Microsoft My Phone and Windows Marketplace for Mobile services (as well as AT&T's Appcenter), you can easily back up your data to the web and download great apps respectively. The HTC Tilt 2 augments Windows Mobile 6.5 with HTC's innovative TouchFLO 3D overlay, which makes it easy to navigate with your finger.
This phone can quickly download video, music and more over AT&T's lightning quick HSPDA 3G network. Additionally, with AT&T's 3G network, you can listen to a conference call on a headset while sending and receiving email attachments, picture messages or Web pages at the same time. This GPS-enabled phone can access the AT&T Navigator service for turn-by-turn directions as well as its Video Share service, which enables you to send video of yourself to another compatible phone while making a voice call. See more details on optional AT&T services below.
Other features include a 3.2-megapixel camera/camcorder, integrated Wi-Fi networking (802.11b/g), Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming as well as tethering capabilities (with optional AT&T subscription), microSD memory expansion up to 32 GB, and up to 8.5 hours of talk time.
What's in the Box
Bluetooth profiles include: A2DP (stereo music streaming), AVRC (remote control), HFP (hands-free car kits), HSP (communication headsets), DUN (dial-up networking), FTP (file transfer), OPP (object push for business cards, calendar items, and pictures), PAN (personal area networking)

The AT&T mobile phone stores have just received a limited quantity of HTC Tilt 2's. I have one. I think the Tilt 2 is as good as the I-phone, if not better--it's got a big and brilliant screen; in our (non-scientific) head to head test, the Tilt 2 accessed my stock trading site as fasssst as the I-phone; and the Tilt 2 has the added bonus of a slide out keyboard.
You know how keyboard-less smart phones require that you access the search screen and then require you to switch screens to input your search criteria? No more with the AT&T HTC Tilt 2 because you've got the slide out keyboard.
And, I tested the Tilt 2 for 10 days--the battery life is robust! It lasted for two days of 8 hours of regular and varied smart phone use--internet access to check stock prices every hour and on the hour, e-mail updates every 4 hours, and constant phone use. That's 16 hours of use before having to recharge. And the Tilt 2 recharges quickly--a couple of hours max!
Most of all, you have the slide out full QWERTY keyboard. No more switching between search window and typing in your search criteria while blind. As you type on the slide out keyboard, your entries appear in the search field. You can correct typing errors immediately--so critical in finding the right Website--how many times have you typed "Help" when you meant Yelp!?! And texting is a breeze--u don't have 2 scroll through keys with multiple alpha and numeric values. There's even a separate key for the @ sign and the dot (.):>)
My Secretary even likes the way the Tilt 2 sounds when I use it in my car via blue tooth--she says it doesn't sound like I'm under water anymore. And because I travel the Highways from the California border with Oregon to Mexico and from Nevada to Texas, I know I've had no problem with coverage--I suspect Verizon's 3G coverage maps don't really matter. AT&T has the coverage where I need it and the connection is usually pretty fast.
The one knock I have which is really not noticeable if you're efficient in formulating your searches--the Microsoft interface limits your tabs to 3 or 4.
I've had about a half dozen cell phones in 3 years--including a couple of the early Sprint mini-computers--the AT&T HTC Tilt 2 is by far the best!

Don't buy this telephone if you want to play games, surf the internet, or run esoteric apps which entertain the idle mind and create millionaires!
BUT.... if you want a true GPS navigator which will work anywhere in the world to within a few feet; if you want to be able to make telephone calls anywhere in the world, and you occasionally want to be able to check email if wireless isn't available for your laptop, then this is the phone for you.
In addition, built in services enable a quick check on flight status by flight number or airport, telephone number look-up with automatic routing to the location, a check on the weather where you are or anywhere else, and internet access in an emergency. It has to be in an emergency because trying to use a webpage on a screen as small as a cellphone is not comfortable! But if you have to, you can. You can text with a qwerty keyboard and a nice feature is that the entire conversation ripples down the screen as the messages continue.
You can also take pretty nice pictures and you can geotag them - no zoom though. You can use Ciao! to let friends know where you are... that's for those who can't be bothered to call and tell them.
What more do you want? It is a telephone, not a mobile entertainment center.

I finally broke down and decided to replace my 6 year old HP iPaq 2755 PDA with a smart phone. I've been comparing phones for months before settling on the Tilt 2. I've been using Win Mobile products since the HP Jornada so am no stranger to the WinMo interface. Overall the phone is pretty good but there is enough there to make me glad that I can purchase something better next year when the new models come out. Here's what I like and don't;
*Build qualify is overall excellent. The battery door could be more solid, but everything else including the slide hinge are top notch.
*Great sound quality; equal to or better than my Blackberry Pearl.
*Beautiful screen, very readable even by 40+ eyes.
*Usable keyboard; not great, but decent and helpful when you need to actually type in a long URL.
*Good Resistive display. Yes, you read that right, I like the resistive touch. No matter how good the little keyboards or on screen keyboard are, the are no match for decent handwriting recognition which is built into WinMo 6.5. It work great on this phone, I can actually take decent notes during meetings.
*Plenty of built in useful apps like a real MS Word processor, Excel spreadsheet, PowerPoint, games, calculator etc. No need to spend $$ getting them off some app store.
*Some halfway decent ring tones are also included.
*Stable - it has only crashed twice, once and that was due to a 3rd part app which I have since uninstalled and the other was Opera.
*Tilt screen- it really is nice.
*Overall size is nearly perfect to fit in your pocket but still be able to use for video, pictures and reading.
*Web experience is pretty decent to with the WinMo version of Internet Explorer. Of course I'm really waiting for the final version of Fennec. *Billions and billions of compatible apps. Well thousands anyway; many free and most aren't even about farts or boobies nice as those may be.
*WiFi and Bluetooth are just fine too.
- I specifically wanted to read books on the devise, but all the book readers I have downloaded rely on hardware buttons that don't exist. I would love to re-purpose the volume up and down keys for changing pages, but can't seem to find a way. Hopefully software updates will fix the issue.
- No 3.5mm jack! What's issue HTC? At least it does ship with a good adapter, and the MP3/WMA's do sound pretty good on it.
- Still slower than I had hoped. Not a biggie considering I knew the iPaq actually has a faster core processor speed at 624 vs. 528mhz for the Tilt2, but still definitely not any better than the old PDA. It amazes me so little has progressed in hand-helds cpu in the last 6 years!
- I don't get what the big deal is about the touch flow? Unless you are "simple", it's easier to use the Start Menu to find your apps. Then again, maybe I'm just a power user.
- Won't sync with my XP desktop, though it syncs fine with the new Win 7 laptop.
- Minor caveat; Opera Mobile isn't that great, but is set as default. IE is much better (and no I'm not a fan boy.)
