|In today's world, a conversation can take many forms, from voice to text - but there's always a person on the other end. The HTC PURE arranges your conversations by people, not just by how you speak with them. When looking at your contacts, you now can see a history of your conversation in whatever form it took place. It doesn't matter if you get asked about a recent email while you are talking on the phone, or if you're in a café reminiscing about a friend's recent text - all your interactions are neatly laid out for viewing and follow-up in a tree of communication with that person.One indisputable fact about smartphones - a big screen on a small phone is good. That's why they've stretched the display on the HTC PURE to its very limits, while still keeping the same compact size. Enjoy videos, websites, photos and any other images on the ultra sharp wide screen display. The high resolution screen will reveal every minute detail in the most vivid way.|

The HTC Pure for AT&T ships with Windows Mobile 6.5, which brings an easier-to-use interface, an improved browser, and new services. The compact smartphone also offers full wireless options and a 5-megapixel camera.
The Pure lacks a standard 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. Touch screen is resistive instead of capacitive. Windows Marketplace is a bit slow to load and Internet Explorer Mobile still falls behind the competition.
The HTC Pure offers AT&T customers an affordable touch-screen smartphone that showcases a more intuitive Windows Mobile operating system and strikes a nice balance between work and play. That said, those looking for a handset that excels in multimedia and Web browsing should stick with the iPhone.

I love almost everything. From his slide keyboard to his perfect design. It has everything to go!. GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-fi, 3G+, G-sensor, etc. It is comfortable to use and there is a lot of OS to this phone. From Android to modified windows. I use this phone to: read pdf; modify and create word, ppt and excel documents. I have sincronized with my pc with outlook. There is a program to see the phone screen in your desktop screen! (MyMobil or something). Also, I can use it like a pendrive (I put it a 8gb, so It is really helpful and easy to use), like a modem or in ActiveSync mode. You don't need any driver or iTune software to use this phone. When you have Vista on your notebook, you can automaticly use this phone like a modem and give internet to your laptop!!! With a 3G+ connection!! It brings 2 speakers I think, so the sound it's really amazing. It has a very decent resolution (480x800 in 65.536 colours) Nice RAM to and obviously it brings multi-task. You can edit the windows interface like hundred of times. You can plug it in to your television with the right adaptator. I have Garmin, but you can use Tomtom, CoPilot or whatever software to squeeze the gps functions.
Did you hear about the new IPHONE 4? ...
This phone already bring all of that but more. The only things that make it human and not perfect is that it doesn't bring FLASH to his 3.2mp high res camera, do not bring "brújula" and the touch interface is not so fast like the iphone. There is a version with two cameras, one 3.2 mp on the back and one VGA cam on the face of the phone (just like the recent discover from apple xD). But I will not use it by now here in my country.
HTC is the name of the experience when you talk about smartphones.
Concluding, is a REALLY HANDY NETBOOK.
Sorry for my english, I'm from Santiago of Chile. Here we talk spanish (casetllano) =D
Writed with my HTC TILT 2 to USA (Rhodium to Europe, Touch Pro 2 to Latinoamérica)
I hope you like it :)
This is a nice phone for the persons that like to tweak or make changes to registry or even you can download free software that make it betters. I liked this kind of product over the years because the posibilities that I have on this phone but the first time I need to spend almost a day making changes to registry and deleting bloatware and then I have the perfect phone.
This is a resistive touch screen not capacitive, doesnt have multitouch.
The screen works pretty good with good response, YouTube application works awesome but after you do some registry changes.
Opera browser do very good job also the Internet Explorer works good and support Flash.
There are tons of free applications http://www.freewarepocketpc.net/
The phone has very nice speakerphone and sound quality.
The screen resolution is excellent and the image quality too.
The phone is a bit heavy but is acceptable.
You need to keep the internal memory with enough space because if you like to have open a lot of applications on the same time the phone becomes unresponsive and very slow and you need to do a soft reset. The HTC Sense (HTC TouchFlo3D) software takes a lot of memory and eats a lot of memory when using but is a very nice software. You can disabled on Setting and Today if you don't like it.
The GPS works very good out of the box but againg you need to tweak it to achieve better performance.
The camera has nice quality not excellent but is very useful, has autofocus and GPS Photo, etc. The performance is slow and the video quality is not that good. You need to be patience.
Overall is an excellent phone but you need to modify the registry to achieve the best performance, if you have time and patience this is the perfect phone for you if not then this phone is not recommended for you and there are a lot of brands and phones for your needs.
Thanks for reading.
After using this device for a little over 2 months i was pleased with the wide variety of multimedia and business options; the feature set is truly impressive and sets a bar for the competition to aim for or maintain.Inclusive of a variety of IM and Mail clients and support for social network applications, Wifi, Wifi Routing, Fast 3G Data browsing, Bluetooth Support, a satisfying 3.2 Megapixel Camera, Clear loud Speakerphone/Music Player, Great call quality, integrated FM Radio, Music Player, Photo Album Support for editing and creation of MS Office Word, Excel & Powerpoint files,and the list goes on, if its mobile capable the TILT2 has it! It easily replaces my notebook pc while on the go.
That being said all this is marred by a dated Touch-flo interface and buggy OS performance that cause hang-ups, sluggish performance, random reset and system freezing. This has been experienced and expressed in many forums but to date no certain fix has been found.Additionally, poor battery life and the Windows 6.5 menus can tend to cause a bit confusing/frustration for those new smartphone or windows phone users. I love my tilt 2 but it takes a bit of patience to live with it.
A formidable smartphone with much potential,however the many and varied performance issue taint the users overall impression of the device.
While it does have nice features that my old phone did not have, like turning the touchscreen off when you put the phone up to your face in a call, turning speakerphone on when placed upside down on a desk, a battery meter that shows times in use since last charge etc., overall the bad outweighs the good.
New Windows 6.5 looks nice, but on this phone is slow, constantly freezes up, and has a rather bad lag from when I tap the screen to the response. In the messaging application or internet application, this can sometimes be as long as 5 to 10 seconds. This is AFTER reinstalling the ROM, and both updates HTC has released.
Further, the amount of memory on this phone is not enough. As you launch more applications, the amount of memory continues growning, EVEN if you close the application and it is no longer running. Having only a 3MP camera was also quite disappointing as similar phones that came out around the same time had 5MP cameras.
Overall, would not reccomend this phone if you don't like your phone constantly freezing and being extremely slow.
After using my touch pro (Fuze) for 2 years, with WinMo 6.1, with all its pros and cons, I decided to change.
I need WinMo because of my work (security settings), and given WinPhone 7 is not there yet, I decided to go with this phone instead.
on the software, WinMo 6.5 delivers: smooth scrolling, marketplace, touch friendly, easy connectivity.. and after upgrading to latest HTC stock ROM, the new Sense is right there, stable and USEFUL. 90% of phone functionality available right there, and the graphics are awesome (Weather!!)
I really miss the camera back light though. I would change that useless "mute" button for a bright LED for my camera.
ATnT bloatware: No need to explain too much, ATnT apps are there, embedded into the stock ROM and although you can manually remove some, others will remain, taking program memory.
>> but you can workaround this by applying a cooked ROM, if you don't need ATnT warranty. EnergyROM fix most performance and bloatware problems... sweet!
Overall, a very good phone that plays the role of a netbook. Great keyboard, great display, good enough battery life, GREAT sound. Excellent option if you are a little savvy on how to customize your phone, to have it the way you want it
