AT&T Inc. has announced the AT&T Tilt, saying it is the most feature-packed smart device available in the United States. The device will be available through AT&T beginning Friday 5th October.
The AT&T Tilt is the first AT&T-enabled Windows Mobile 6 smart device and features an innovative slide-out QWERTY keypad design, a 3-megapixel camera, 3G data speeds from AT&T’s UMTS/HSDPA-based BroadbandConnect network and global connectivity. If needed users can connect to Wi-Fi wireless networks (802.11 b/g).
Designed by HTC, the AT&T Tilt features a 2.8-inch color screen that slides back to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, then tilts up to position the screen for reading and creating e-mail, browsing online, using applications or just playing videos and games. The AT&T Tilt supports Bluetooth 2.0, including support for Bluetooth Stereo.
The AT&T Tilt comes with the latest version of TeleNav GPS Navigator which provides GPS-enabled turn-by-turn voice and on-screen driving or walking directions, colorful 3-D moving maps and traffic delay alerts with one-click rerouting.
New features debuting on the AT&T Tilt include address sharing, which allows users to share their current locations or the location of their favorite businesses with other mobile users. The new version of TeleNav GPS Navigator also includes reviews and ratings for nearby restaurants and allows customers to rate them directly from their AT&T mobile phone.
Business users also can use TeleNav Track, a mobile workforce management solution that includes GPS-enabled tracking, time sheets, wireless forms, navigation, job dispatching and bar code scanning.
The device also accommodates 4GB MicroSD flash memory cards and is capable of supporting up to 32GB MicroSD cards to expand storage for pictures, video, music and more.
Windows Mobile 6 delivers the ability to view e-mail in their original rich HTML format with live links to Web and Microsoft Office SharePoint sites, which means text and images are displayed as they would be on a Windows PC with pictures, fonts and colors.
All Windows Mobile 6 devices include Microsoft’s Direct Push Technology for up-to-date e-mail delivery and automatic synchronization of Outlook calendars, tasks and contacts through Microsoft Exchange Server. Windows Mobile 6 also offers a set of important device security and management features that include the capability to remotely wipe all data from a device should it be lost or stolen, helping ensure that confidential information remains that way.
In addition to Microsoft Direct Push, the AT&T Tilt will be the first Windows Mobile device in North America to include BlackBerry Connect v4.0 software, which provides BlackBerry e-mail service, security and device management for IT administrators and the benefit for users of wireless synchronization of e-mail, calendar, contacts, task list and memo pad information. BlackBerry Connect v4.0 supports push e-mail for Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and Novell GroupWise through the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and personal e-mail through the BlackBerry Internet Service.
