    These seem to have nearly the same features, and yet the newer Tilt is cheaper. Is it older technology in a new package? Anyone have any experience with either one?

    Tilt FTW

    but really, just go to the store and try them out.

    also the Tilt is on a promo price since it was just released.

    dont count on the camera much...

    if the object isnt moving, its good. Otherwise its just a blur.
    the gps is :bowdown: though

    I got a tilt as a gift this weekend - and I have no idea how to use it :o

    I had a little sony ericsson phone for like 3 years. IMO the user guide for the tilt is very small considering all of the features, I'm embarassed that I will need to find some kind of "tilt for dummies" tutorial.

    Still it's the sexiest phone I've ever had, once I work out my stupidity I imagine that I'll want it tethered to my hand

    synched with google calendar :bowdown:, just signed up @ rememberthemilk.com

    Tilt, the 8525 will drop in price soon. Btw I had an 8525 and the camera was crap, I doubt that the 3 megapixel tilt is any better.

    Doubt it will drop in price, just be phased out. They aren't selling at all now that the tilt is out

    no flash for camera on 8925
    gps is slow
    wm6 is out for 8525

    for me it'd depend on the price difference b/c they really arent all that much different

    I have a Tilt and the GPS is a great feature. It really does nearly everything I'm looking for in a phone, so I can't complain too much about it. I'm really looking forward to Android coming out so I can put that that OS on the phone, as well.

    I would spring for the Tilt unless price is REALLY that much of an issue and if that's the case, buy a used or refurbished 8525. Bottom line -- you should pay significantly less for the 8525 than you would for the new Tilt since the 8525 has been out for more than a year and the Tilt came out in October in the US.
