Nice, I have been wanting to switch to AT&T from verizon for a while since verizon always gets shafted with phones, (aka they all suck), and i want an iPhone, but this might be there as well. Just not sure how reliable ATT is going to be.
Not at all.
As I'm sure you know, it greatly depends on where you live. In my area, we have both awesome Verizon and AT&T coverage. I haven't noticed a difference between the two since switching from Verizon.
I want to see how it goes when they complete Dobson merger. Cell One has territory north of here and sometimes there's drifty signal around here for them. So if ATT is truthtelling about intent to improve rural service, maybe soon my iPhone and I will not be living in a dead zone!
Or very well!
Depends on where you live
Also AT&T/ T Mobile was an agreement, where I can use T Mobile network, if the AT&T network is weak some where...so ask yourself, do people w/ T Mobile/AT&T get good service?
Clearly the phones are better on GSM...
The phone's out for business customers today! I will be buying it today.
Has anyone held one? Is it solid, and does it "feel" bulky? It's fairly good looking.... Does it have TouchFLO?
I have the HTC TyTn, which is the model before this. It's solid and very bulky. I'm about to sell my HTC TyTn and wouldn't touch another Windows Mobile smartphone again (had a Treo since they came out and made the switch earlier this year).
I think the design looks like of cheap, or maybe it's just the Windows logo.
I ordered it yesterday, and it already shipped. Should be getting it by tuesday!
I will be using GPS alot with TomTom, so that's a plus. Already got a 4GB microSD card on order, so it's all good.
And no, this phone looks nice, not cheap.
It's not always about looks for me, but functionality. Please don't even compare the iPhone to this device...because this device kills the iPhone in terms of functionality. Look wise, the iPhone wins of course.
Let us know how much you like it after a month. I felt like that about the HTC TyTn before I bought it and used it for a month. Became a Jack of All Trades, Master of None device for me.
I was shocked when I read that it could hold up to 32GB via microSD
Come on 32GB iPhone
I had the 8525 for well over 9 months (It is the TyTn but in the AT&T form factor) and the device was a bit bulky but it was an amazing device for me. I did so much on it, stream radio, get online at 3G speeds, tether via a laptop, slingbox it, whatever else you can think of. It was sweet. I sold it and waited for the kaiser and now it's out. Can't wait!
I don't really care about Windows Mobile that much, I use alot of 3rd party applications so...it is much more open than OSX under the iPhone.
6GB microSDHC cards are out already, but I opted for 4GB, which is enough for me anyways. I'm putting the TomTom navigation maps on it, so I will have 3GB left in the end for movies and other random stuff.
Have you seen a microSD card? Those things are tiny. As big as a pinky nail! Crazy that they can hold upto 32GB...
Yep, I used a 1GB in my BlackBerry 8100 for a year. A few months after I bought the 1GB, the 2GB came out for the same price as the 1GB
Just got the phone today, it's badazz!
It looks really sleek when you hold it in your hands. Has a shiny black finish, and ruberized back. I like it much more than the 8525.
One caveat I have is I bought a screen protector and I accidently dropped it and I put it on the Tilt and now there's a bunch of dust underneath :\
It looks cool but it's no iPhone.
Nope. It's a hell of a lot better
Why do you say that?
Support for 3rd party apps
Real keyboard (tactile feedback FTW!)
Tethering, OBEX, A2DP over Bluetooth
More importantly, it can be unlocked (without any warranty voiding firmware hacks). You can bypass AT&T alltogether and get an unbranded version which isn't locked to begin with.
Say what you want about Microsoft, but Windows Mobile is one of the few things they've done right. I have an HTC Windows Mobile Pocket PC and it kicks ass. It can do everything the iPhone can and then some.
Looks ok, no need to compare to iPhone... but Windows mobile is the deal killer, IMO

Don't forget: It takes a good 3 seconds to switch from program to program. I had the Sprint version of the tytn which I got rid of because of the sluggishness.
Don't forget: The TyTN II (This thing) has double the amount of RAM as the tytn .... 128mb compared to 64mb ;-)
Don't forget: it's ugly as hell too. I'll take the iPhone any day over that thing. Most of the extras this has over the iPhone are things I don't care about anyway...
Yeah unlocked ones are going for $800 shipped. That's 2 brand new 8GB iPhones..
