AT&T and HTC Debut HTC Tilt 2 and HTC Pure Windows Phones

AT&T and HTC Corporation, a global designer of mobile phones, today
announced the upcoming availability of the HTC Tilt™ 2 and the HTC
PURE™ with Windows® Mobile 6.5. The HTC PURE delivers a touch screen
experience in an alluring, compact form factor, and the HTC Tilt 2
features the convenience of a tilting touch screen combined with the
practicality of a slide out full QWERTY keyboard.

Powered by the nation’s fastest 3G network and the Windows phone
platform, the HTC Tilt 2 and HTC PURE deliver an enhanced TouchFLO® 3D
interface on a large vibrant touch screen that makes navigation
intuitive and rich while enabling smooth access to desktop like web
browsing. Both devices embody HTC’s approach to put people at the
center of the communications experience by providing full access to
voice, text, or email in a single contact view, regardless of whether
voice, text or email was used. This view can be accessed from the
contact card or in the in-call screen during a phone conversation,
ensuring the latest conversations are always at hand.

Michael Woodward, vice president, Mobile Phone Portfolio, AT&T
Mobility and Consumer Markets. “Twice as many smartphone users choose
AT&T over any other carrier and the HTC Tilt 2 and HTC PURE will lead
our Windows phone lineup into 2010.”

a variety of applications on new AT&T devices, including the HTC PURE
and HTC Tilt 2. Additionally, AT&T customers’ purchases from Windows
Marketplace can be added to their monthly statements. After Microsoft
