Kaiser Becomes ATT Tilt

(Price and launch info added) HTC's Kaiser has received its final branding and feature set for the US, according to a tip from a visitor to an AT&T store. The carrier has confirmed that the phone is formally known as the 8925 (to replace the outgoing 8525) but will most often be referred to as the AT&T Tilt to reflect its angled, slide-out keyboard. Earlier FCC filings have also been validated by claims that there will be versions with and without the 3-megapixel back camera to please corporate customers anxious about the security risks of cameraphones, though the third version with a front camera has not been mentioned.

A launch for the Tilt was narrowed down to the turn of this month; however, the release period is indefinite and may vary between late August and early September. The ultimate price of the phone is also unknown but should compare with the 8525, which is sold for $300 when subsidized by a two-year contract and $600 for month-to-month or mid-contract upgrades.

Update: A new report claims the Tilt will be available on September 3rd for $499 with a two-year contract. Shorter terms and a contract-free price are not yet available.
