HTC Pure and HTC Tilt 2:

on 1:31 AM


AT&T has announced two Windows Mobile 6.5 phones with WVGA (800 x 480 pixel) displays, enhanced TouchFlo 3D software, and touch-sensitive "zoom bars." The HTC Pure and HTC Tilt 2 include 528MHz processors, dual cameras, GPS, WiFi, FM receivers, and ambient light sensors, according to the carrier.
While they're among the first Windows Mobile 6.5 phones to hit the market, the HTC Pure and HTC Tilt 2 appear to be revamped versions of devices first released by HTC internationally back in February. Though it has a new plastic casing, the Pure (below left) equates to the earlier Touch Diamond2, while the Tilt 2 (below right) equates to the Touch Pro2 -- already released by T-Mobile USA, Sprint, and Verizon. 
The HTC Pure includes a 3.2-inch screen with 800 x 480 resolution, a touch-sensitive "zoom bar," and a five-megapixel camera with autofocus (the secondary videoconferencing camera found on the international Touch Diamond2 is AWOL, however). Also cited by AT&T are the phone's "expandable memory," ambient light sensor, and gravity sensor.

Though detailed specifications were not released by AT&T, the HTC Pure likely retains the Diamond2's quad-band GSM capabilities, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. The phone also includes the latest version of HTC's homegrown software stack, TouchFLO 3D, and a customized version of the Opera Mobile 9.5 web browser.

Features and specifications listed by AT&T for the Pure (or HTC for the Touch Diamond2) include:

Processor -- Qualcomm MDM7200A clocked at 528MHz

AT&T's HTC Tilt 2 includes most of the same hardware and software as the HTC Pure, but its WVGA screen is 3.6 inches, while its main camera offers 3.2 megapixel resolution. The device sports a QWERTY keyboard that slides out at an angle, making the phone resemble a miniature laptop computer, plus a speakerphone employing dual microphones and HTC's "Straight Talk" technology. Also included is a battery that offers an uprated, 1500mAh capacity.
