Rumors of the device have swirled around for a long time and it was nice to finally see the Tilt name on the box.

Opening the top flap reveals the protected Tilt and Getting Started guide. The Tilt is very well packaged and unboxing it was enjoyable.

You will find a Getting Started Guide, a Quick Start Guide, Getting Started Disc, and flyers from AT&T Mobile Music (branded emusic store) and Napster for music content.

The rest of the box contents include the li-ion polymer battery, AC charger, mini-USB cable, and spare stylus.

The device has a 1350 mAh battery that provides for a full day of usage.

The battery is accessed by removing the entire back cover. You can see some of the other internals when you remove the back too.

A rubber cover is labeled GPS on the back of the device. Adjacent to this is the 3 megapixel digital camera and mono speaker.

The Tilt looks like a fairly standard Phone Edition device in this mode. It is sleek and very professional.

The Tilt makes a great media viewing device with the unique flip hinge.

The number keypad keys have a white background instead of black so they stand out on the device. The keys are rubberized and quite flat on the device.

There is a FN key (in blue), shift, Start, and OK keys in the bottom left corner.

The power button is recessed enough to prevent accidental pressing when you are using it.

A microSD card slot, lanyard loop, HTC usb connector and soft reset button are found on the bottom.

There is a Push to Talk button, scroll wheel, and OK button on the upper left side.

On the lower right you will find the camera button and stylus silo.

The device is a bit hefty, but feels quite solid in your hand.

Unlike most devices where the SIM card is located close to the battery, the SIM card is under the display and accessed when you slide it open.

There are two stout hinges on the back of the device that feel quite durable and well constructed.

Hopefully, the tilt hinge stays solid after extended usage.

The display tilts to about 50 degrees.

As you can see it appears to be a mini-laptop when tilted.

You can also use the Tilt in the traditional flat mode, which may be better for thumb keyboard usage and text entry.

The front buttons below the display are all well backlit.

The keyboard backlighting is a bright white and there are blue alternative colored keys.

As pointed out by a buddy, the 3G icons are not very professional and look like an amateur graphics artist created them.

Several utilities and programs from AT&T are included on the Tilt.

I haven't seen this many game and application demos preloaded on a device before. Most of these applications have to be purchased to continue using.

You can see how much smaller the Tilt display is when compared to the Advantage.
