UPDATED: A trio of hot smartphones coming soon to AT&T?
This article contains unofficial information.
Behind door number 2 is...the AT&T Pure. If the name sound familiar, it is because Sony Ericsson will soon be launching their Pureness model and we just reported that a possible Microsoft handset has been codenamed "Pure". The Pure is the wireless operator's version of the HTC Touch Diamond2 and the 2 year contract price is expected to be $199.99 $149.99 after MIR. Considering that the price is effective until the end of October, we would say it is a pretty safe bet to expect the Pure to be launched sometime next month.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Garmin-Asus nuvifone G60. We have waited for what seems like an eternity from the time the phone was introduced to finally getting a Stateside carrier. The GPS centric device carries a price of $299.99 after a $100 MIR and your John Hancock on a two year contract. The launch date-again based on the price expiring at the end of October-should be sometime next month.

Seeing how the Tilt2 and Pure are basically the same phone minus the keyboard, I might get the Pure instead of the Tilt 2, but, I'm kinda ready for a keyboard. With the $299 price point, you might as well buy it out right. If you're spending $300 on contract, what's another $200 getting it off contract? And because of those two prices being close together, even though it's not as low as Verizon's TouchPro 2, I still think it's a good price point- give your customers an actually choice, instead of having $400 between the contract and off contract prices.
