T-Mobile USA will launch the promising HTC Touch Pro2 smartphone on the 12th of August in the United States; it is already available in the UK through Orange.
The HTC Touch Pro 2 is a sleek Windows Mobile based smartphone that comes with a full QWERTY keyboard. It has a 3.6-inch WVGA (800x480 pixel) tilting touchscreen display, A-GPS, full HSDPA compatibility and WiFi, a 3.2-megapixel camera (without flash) and will be available only in mocha colour.
HTC could bundle the phone with Windows Mobile 6.1 with a free upgrade to Windows 6.5 when available. The device is powered by a 528MHz Qualcomm processor with 288MB memory and a microSD card slot capable of supporting 32GB.
Furthermore, the handset will use HTC's proprietary "Straight Talk" technology that delivers "high-fidelity sound enhanced by asymmetric speakers and advanced noise suppression with full-duplex acoustics."
"The HTC Touch Pro2 offers the most powerful productivity experience available on a mobile phone, while also delivering unparalleled elegance in both its exterior and user interface design," said Jason Mackenzie, HTC's vice president.
The HTC Touch Pro2 is available from Orange for as little as £30 per month, which is very affordable as far as we're concerned. On Orange's Dolphin 30 option on 24 months contract, you will get 600 minutes and unlimited text messages.
