AT&T Tilt First Impressions Review at brighthand!
“The Tilt uses a new variation of a fairly standard design. It has a landscape oriented QWERTY keyboard that can be hidden by sliding it behind the screen. Unlike similar models, though, this smartphone’s screen can be tilted up, making it look something like a miniature laptop. There are many people who like to have their mobile device on their desk displaying some useful bits of information, like the time, the number of unread emails in the inbox, weather conditions, or even family pictures. The Tilt’s flip-up display makes this easy.You’re probably not going to want to actually use the device much in this mode, though. When the display is tilted up, it partially covers the two keys that correspond to the two soft buttons on the bottom of the screen. These make using the device without touching the screen much easier, and on the Tilt are already too small to begin with, so you don’t want anything in the way.” Read more here:

Software features of Sony Ericsson A200
“Apart from traditional vertically arranged sub-menus, the maker has provided subject-based horizontal tabs. It means that while viewing a list of the dialed numbers, one can see not only the dialed numbers but in the same time (by leaning the joystick horizontally) switch between missed and received call tabs. In the phone menu this kind of navigation is provided anywhere it’s possible and it makes for much better usage experience. The menu ergonomics is quite high in this phone. I also have to note that such horizontal tabs appear in Phonebook, Settings and other menu items as well.” Read more here:
