HTC Pure retail AT&T box
The HTC Pure from AT&T is the first Windows Mobile 6.5 device launched on a US wireless carrier. This is an AT&T branded HTC Touch Diamond2 loaded up with plenty of AT&T bloatware in a sleek form factor at a nice price of $150 after rebate and contract. The device performed quite well with lots of apps running and may be what some people are looking for in a touch screen device.
