Tilt. $299. October 5th.

We expect it to be the Best Damn Windows Mobile Device. Ever. But expectations do not a smartphone make, so we won't know for sure until tomorrow, which is when the Tilt is finally available in retail. We all know the slider form factor has been tweaked so the screen can tilt up for easy viewing. We all know the specs by now:

  • 3G (HSDPA and UMTS)
  • WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0
  • Integrated GPS
  • 3 megapixel camera
  • Windows Mobile 6

...What we didn't know was the price, it's much less than I expected. $299 with contract. Without contract - we don't know yet, but our battered and beaten wallets will find out tomorrow.

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 complete global connectivity.

I guess the "tomorrow" I previously mentioned was, in fact, just the "internal to AT&T" release of information. Oh well, if you take shots, sometimes you miss.
