AT&T has announced the HTC Tilt 2, a Windows Mobile 6.5-powered smartphone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and tilting screen. The device features a 3.6-inch WVGA (800 x 480 pixel) touchscreen display and a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera for shooting photos and video.

The Tilt 2 user experience is supplied by HTC's TouchFLO 3D user interface and HTC Straight Talk conference calling feature. TouchFLO 3D enhances Windows Mobile with a streamlined and aesthetically appealing interface. With Straight Talk, users can easily switch between calls, emails and contact information. The Tilt 2's dual speakers and dual microphone speakerphone further improve the experience. Additionally, users can now pay for third-party applications by charging them to their monthly bill with Microsoft's Windows Marketplace for Mobile application storefront.

AT&T's HTC Tilt 2 will be available in coming weeks for $299.99 after a two-year customer agreement and mail-in rebate.

Nice phone but really tough to get accessories and it's not as smooth running as the iPhone. If you have a PC, this is the phone for you. If you have a Mac, this is not.
