Conclusion: Verizon took a powerful smartphone from HTC, removed some important features, crippled the RAM, and jacked up the price. The result isn't worth the bother for most customers.
Pros: Sharp styling. Clear, punchy voice quality. Full complement of wireless radios. Solid Web browser.
Cons: Very expensive. Slow. Not enough RAM. TouchFLO interface is confusing. Lacks features when compared with AT&T and Sprint versions. No IM client. Strange keyboard layout. Non-standard headphone jack.
Summary: Design If you are familiar with the HTC Touch Diamond design, then you won't notice too many differences compared with the Touch Pro device. Both come in the same size (102 x 51mm), but the thickness varies: 11.5mm for Touch Diamond, while Touch Pro has 18.1mm. The difference is huge also when it comes to their weight: 110g compared with Touch Pro's 165g (including battery).
Pros: Touch Pro is an improvement from the entire line of “touch” devices that HTC launched on the market. It has more power (288 MB DDR SDRAM, 512 MB ROM), a better camera (3.2 Megapixel), a better battery (1340 mAh Li-Ion), full QWERTY keyboard, HSDPA and GPS function. Since these are high-tech features highly regarded by all mobile phone freaks, obviously, Touch Pro is the answer to so many prayers.
Cons: The only thing that may prevent one from buying Touch Pro is definitely its bulky form factor. I can understand that adding a full QWERTY keyboard is important and requires some space, but I still think that 18.5mm in thickness is a little bit over the limit these days. Last but not least, I think that more accessories in the sales package would have made it more attractive for potential buyers.
