HTC Touch Pro2 Review

For all the analysis of iPhones, Android devices and webOS' suitability for the enterprise market, there's one company already a mainstay and with the smartphone legacy to prove it.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 24 2009

After Palm's big moment last weekend, Apple once again seized the headlines with their WWDC 2009 keynote on Monday morning.  We showed up to liveblog the whole announcement, expecting a new smartphone, and the company delivered in the shape of the iPhone 3G S - twice the speed, twice the storage, and the same styling as the iPhone 3G - together with a launch date for iPhone OS 3.0.  However, Apple weren't content with just that: they also brought along a new MacBook Pro range complete with integrated batteries; check out our video unboxing and first-impressions.

It feels like we've been waiting a long time for the HTC Touch Pro2 to arrive, though really it was only announced back in February at Mobile World Congress.  The flagship smartphone - which packs a 3.6-inch WVGA resistive touchscreen, 3G HSPA, WiFi b/g and a full QWERTY keyboard - is the second half of HTC's two-part Touch refresh, along with the Diamond2, and you can see our video unboxing after the cut.

It's looking all the more likely that the HTC Touch Pro2 will launch in the US on T-Mobile, as FCC documents confirm that it supports the AWS 3G band used by the carrier.  The Pro2 will slot in as the top smartphone in HTC's new range, but going by HTC's leaked roadmap from back in January, T-Mobile won't be the only carrier to get it.  Versions of the Pro2 for Verizon, Sprint and an HTC branded device were all shown, in addition to T-Mobile USA.

We caught up with HTC this morning to check out their new Windows Phones, the HTC Touch Diamond2 and the HTC Touch Pro2, as announced yesterday.  Say what you like about the Microsoft OS, HTC have put together a pair of slick handsets, taking the best of the original Diamond and Pro and packing in extra screen size, more sensible hardware controls and higher-capability media functionality.
