Conclusion: One of our favorite PDA and smartphones of 2008, the Touch Pro adds those things we missed on the Diamond: landscape display support everywhere and the QWERTY keyboard. It's a feature-rich phone with GPS, WiFi, fast EVDO Rev. A, Bluetooth with A2DP and a good autofocus camera. Beyond that, it's small, sexy and has a wonderful VGA touch screen.
Cons: Battery life is poor. No hardware OK and Start Menu keys may make for a hard transition if you're a veteran Windows Mobile user.
Summary: For many, the HTC Touch Diamond was a device that caught one's attention for a myriad of reasons: gorgeous design, easy on the hands, feature-packed with a strong focus on performance and of course, the HTC TouchFlo 3D interface. Fast forward from June 2008 to now, the HTC Touch Pro, or known amongst many as the Raphael, made its first appearance over the web with its leaked images.
Conclusion: Touch Pro did live up to our expectations: it offers all features seen in Touch Diamond, including the same TouchFLO 3D interface, adding an extremely good hardware keyboard, which makes writing a pleasure. Unfortunately however, it doesn’t bring anything else to the table, becoming just another “old” device. If you have to have the keyboard, is a very good solution, and if not, then the slim Diamond is a better choice.
Pros: Excellent QWERTY, The best interface on a WM phone, Good outgoing sound during a talk, An excellent Opera Mobile 9.5 browser, A pleasant design and quality make
Cons: Sluggishness due to the early ROM, Below excellent incoming sound quality, Doesn’t offer anything in addition to Diamond’s features, Good player with low quality, Mediocre camera, The slider moves when using the music controls
Conclusion: L’ HTC Touch Pro è uno smartphone eccezionale, dotato di tutto il necessario per il lavoro e il divertimento. L’elemento più evidente è il grande schermo touchscreen da 2,8 pollici, con la tastiera qwerty Scorrevole , ma sono da sottolineare anche la nova tecnologia TouchFLO 3D, la fotocamera da 3,2 MP, il GPS integrato, il processore potente, la tecnologia HSDPA, il lettore e la radio FM, la memoria ampia ed espandibile e la connettività Wi-fi .
