>> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at cnet.com, and today I've got your first look at the AT&T Tilt. This is AT&T's first Windows Mobile 6 device, but that's not what's special about it. It's called the Tilt because it has a slide-out keyboard here, and then the screen actually tilts up 40 degrees, so it's nice for viewing e-mails, you can set it on the desk and watch videos as well, and the keyboard is really spacious, so it's good for messaging. This is a mobile professional's device, good for business users. It's got everything you would want in it. Wireless options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G. To compliment the 3G capability it also works with AT&T Video and AT&T music. So you can stream video, also purchase music. There's also a 3-mega pixel camera on the back. For the business user it also has the Microsoft Office Mobile Suite so you can edit, create, and view Word documents as well as Excel. At launch, the Tilt will go for $299.99 with a two-year contract. If you need something for your work and personal life the AT&T Tilt is a good choice. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your first look at the AT&T Tilt.

AT&T Tilt Review
The good: The AT&T Tilt features a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard and a tilting screen. The Windows Mobile 6 smartphone also offers the full gamut of wireless options, including 3G and GPS, push e-mail, a 3-megapixel camera, and support for AT&TMusic and Video.
The bad: Speakerphone quality wasn't the greatest, and talk-time battery life was on the shorter side. The Tilt was sluggish at times, and picture quality was subpar. We also had problems acquiring a GPS fix.
The bottom line: The AT&T Tilt promises to be the carrier's most powerful smartphone for business users with its full range of wireless options, Windows Mobile 6, and innovative tilt screen.
