HTC Touch Pro 2

Another impressive HTC handset coming to market

The HTC Touch Pro2 has a 3.6-inch touchscreen, a QWERTY keypad and, usefully, doubles as a speaker phone for conference calls and the like – a vitally important function for business users, who will be able to just lay the phone down face-down on a table to automatically convert it to a speaker phone

The HTC tells us that "TouchFLO 3D has been more deeply integrated into a customised version of Windows Mobile 6.1 to deliver more consistency throughout Windows Mobile applications and menus

Our expert says: "HTC's stock has never been higher, especially with its Android line, and the Windows Mobile 6.1 range has also been cleaned up to the point where even those that have hated the OS in the past can learn to love it.

"The Touch Pro 2 is the next in the family, with a well-spaced keyboard and a processor and screen to make internet viewing nothing short of exceptional. It might not be to everyone's taste, but don't forget it will be re-vamped when it gets the Windows Mobile 6.5 OS later in the year."
