is there going to be a new Tilt?

Aug 26, 2008, 3:30 PM
if so when?

I tried the Tilt at the ATT store and transitioning from application to other apps or other screens seems to be slow. it seems like it takes a while to redraw...

maybe a new stronger version is on the horizon??

Doubtful. HTC has released numerous new phones since the Tilt - including some with more features/power - but none of them have had the tilting screen. My guess is that the Tilt was a one-off design and won't be upgraded.

The HTC Touch Pro is about as close as you're likely to get to an upgrade for the Tilt, but they haven't released a NAM 3G version yet (though they have said that they are going to eventually).

so is that delay in redrawing screens a ram issue? can you upgrade ram on these things?
is the delay not too bad? would it be better if i cleaned it out from the start?

do other carriers / phone makers make anything else like this.... (i like how it is like a minilaptop for my work / windows apps etc.)

thank you for your insight! i reallly appreciate it!

Well... I suppose it depends on what you mean by a delay. There's a slight delay on mine when starting an app, but it's not significant. Maybe 1 second, but my laptop takes longer than that to open an new app so I don't really notice it.

If you have a lot of crap stored on the device (instead of on a storage card) then that will definitely slow you down. I have 104 MB of free storage memory and 68 MB of free program memory right now because I store and install EVERYTHING on the storage card. Nothing goes on the device itself if I can help it.

i have heard that there is a software update that makes the devie support both nam frequencies.

The only rumored software update that I've seen was from back when everyone thought the Touch Pro was going to be tri-band, and the update would allegedly sacrifice the EU 3G frequencies in order to add NAM 850 EDGE to the device.

I haven't seen anything saying that you can hack a Touch Pro to add the NAM 850 band to its 3G support.

the tilt is now at "end of life" life stage at at&t so hopefully they will come out with an updated version of the tilt or something better.

I was in an At&t store yesterday getting an iphone for my girlfriend. I saw one of the sales reps walking around with a phone i wasn't sure of what it was. Then when i saw it I asked him if it was the Fuse. He said yes and it should be out within the next few weeks, as early as next week. I've seen it on a few other sites and here. 6T?t=anon
