Summary: When is a business phone not just a business device? When it's the HTC Fuze. This Windows Mobile-based smartphone offers plenty of tools that will help boost your productivity, but it also manages to have some fun, too.
Conclusion: Nearly everything about the Touch Pro, from its sleek case to its superior keyboard, is likeable. Unfortunately, the phone just doesn’t have quite enough grunt to tow the graphical user interface HTC has attached to it, and in the end it ranked very low on usability, even compared to phones with...
Pros: Fashionable exterior; sharp display; good camera; attractive interface; large keyboard
Cons: Slow performance; fated menus under TouchFLO; stylus required
Summary: Like Sprint's Touch Pro, the AT&T Fuze is a stylish and well-built phone with a good Web browser and an intuitive (if sluggish) interface. However, $299 is a lot to spend on a phone, and for that amount of money, we'd recommend the match-priced BlackBerry Bold for AT&T customers.
Conclusion: The HTC Touch Pro is a very good device, and is a compelling offering for those who can’t get by without a physical keyboard. Maybe because of its size, maybe because of its color scheme, maybe because it simply came later, but it just didn’t wow us like the Diamond did.
Pros: TouchFLO 3D is better than ever, Lots and lots of memory, More, useful programs included, Great out of the box, but endless possibilities with Windows Mobile, Teeter!
Cons: Performance is improved, but WinMo still has its moments, Battery life could be better, The Pro doesn’t feel as solid as we’d like
Conclusion: Some of us have been waiting months for this phone to hit the US, and it's a formidable successor to the HTC Tilt. In terms of looks and size, it's a flat out winner. Though thicker than QWERTY bar phones, its relatively small width and height mean it does feel overly large.
Summary: The Touch Pro is solidly built and has a ton of great features, even if its UI is sluggish at times; it's certainly worth the $50 premium over the Diamond. At $299, however, it's still a bit expensive compared to other devices with similar features.
Excerpt: The HTC Touch Pro is a powerhouse device, packed with features and remarkably capable. Running on Windows Mobile Pro 6.1 Professional, the Touch Pro merges a seamless TouchFLO 3D interface with an ergonomic, full slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Pick your input method and have a ball!
Summary: For heavy text input, the Touch Pro is a much better option than its little brother, the Touch Diamond. There are still plenty of issues, but the sluggish interface has been slightly improved, and removable storage is a welcome addition.
