HTC Pure and Tilt 2 arrive at AT&T

AT&T's phone introductions on Monday have been headed up by its first smartphones to ship with Windows Mobile 6.5. The Pure is AT&T's more unique entry and has a 3.2-inch but very sharp 800x480 screen that takes advantage of the Microsoft platform's more touch-friendly interface, Windows Marketplace and a more accurate web browser with Flash. HTC's own TouchFLO 3D interface is similarly new for AT&T and puts contacts, media and other data at the top level. A 5-megapixel camera, 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi put it on par with HTC's Touch Diamond2 despite the smaller frame.

It takes microSDHC cards for storage and is priced relatively low for Windows Mobile at $150 after agreeing to a two-year smartphone plan. Stores should already have the Pure in stock.

The Tilt 2 represents AT&T's adaptation of the Touch Pro2 and has the same touchscreen QWERTY slider design, but is the first version of the phone to ship with Windows Mobile 6.5 instead of the older 6.1. Inside, the phone is near-identical to HTC's reference model with a 3.6-inch 800x480 display, a 3.2-megapixel camera, 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi; microSDHC handles most storage. AT&T ships the Tilt 2 today for $300 with a two-year smartphone plan.
