I don't understand the big deal? Seems like the same device with a slower processor and different keyboard flipping mechanism?

From what I have read, the processor used in Tilt/Tytn II is a dual-core processor, so, even though it runs at 384Mhz, it's faster than 8525's 400Mhz processor. Also, screen tilting is not the only upgrade. You forgot a 3PM camera, 128MB of RAM, 256MB of ROM, a built-in GPS, etc. ;)

Sold for $365 on ebay. Did I mention the BlackJack or actually the Microsoft Smartphone OS SUCKS. The phone isnt too bad but MS SP WM5 sucks compared to PPC. I am hating the limitations pending the Kaiser in Sept.

Well, That does sound pretty nice. However, does WM5 or WM6 support a multi threaded operating system? Or is it more one core is for hardware stuff like the radio, and the other is for the OS ?

None of the above. I will get the Tilt and my wife will replace her Treo 650 with my current 8525.

8525 for $365, you were lucky, here in the UK you will get about £120-ish.

Hmm. Is it that great? Here is what it is missing IMO;


:VGA screen,
:Full-sized mini-jack out,
:More H/W buttons where you actually need them (at the top of the device where your damn thumbs are!)
:a decent OS.


Oh sod it, where do I sign???

Will Be Keeping My Hermes/tytn, Only Real Difference Is The Camera, I Gotta 10mp Digital Cam, So Cant Be Fussed To Upgrade
Camera is only difference?!? What about dual core CPU, a dedicated GPU, built in GPS, tilt keyboard...i'm sure there's more, but those are the main things :) Camera Shamera...that's the least important part of the kaiser.
