HTC Touch Pro2 video unboxing

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.Video unboxing after the cut

First impressions of the HTC Touch Pro2 are good; it's a solid, weighty phone (the full specifications say 178.5g) and not exactly small at 116 x 59.2 x 16.65mm, but it feels well made and sturdy.  The metal screen bezel is a nice design element, though we're glad to see the rear panel is matte rather than the fingerprint-grabbing gloss of the Diamond2.

Software is the usual Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro – with a 6.5 upgrade catered for with the requisite buttons – together with HTC's TouchFLO 3D UI.  That's had a neat upgrade to deal with the Pro2's horizontal orientation when the keyboard is out, and of course includes the People-Centric tweaks we appreciated on the Diamond2.  The keyboard itself is tactile and has an impressive amount of button-travel considering the size; we'll be battering away at it some more before giving our final opinion.  Until then, enjoy the unboxing video and short demo below!
