MobileTechReview Looks at the HTC Touch Pro2

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Pocket PC Articles" @ 12:00 PM

"The display is beautiful. Though not as vivid as the AMOLED display on the Samsung Impression QWERTY feature phone for AT&T, it's one of the nicer on the market. The mind-boggling 800 x 480 resolution is in itself impressive (a resolution shared with the HTC Touch HD and the HTC Touch Diamond2). The screen is very sharp (even tiny text is legible), colorful and bright. The phone's ambient light sensor can control display brightness and we found that it rarely raised brightness above 50%. Use manual brightness (at the possible expense of battery life) for an impressively bright display. The display is legible outdoors but does fade, making it hard to get a good sense of what you're shooting with the camera."

Yup, another HTC Touch Pro2 review - this time it's from our friends at MobileTechReview. They do a great job drilling down on everything that this new device from HTC has to offer...but they probably share my weariness in reviewing a swanky new phone and not being able to take full advantage of it in North America because it's stuck on pokey 2G speeds. I hope HTC evolves to the point where they can crank out a single phone that has all 3G bands in it, or can release a North American version at the same time as the Euro/Asian version.

MobileTechReview Reviews Sony Ericsson's Xperia X1a

"Well folks, it's finally here: the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1a. That's the US version with 3G HSDPA on the US AT&T bands. The Xperia is sold in the US at SonyStyle stores in silver and at Best Buy stores in black (Fry's, J&R and other retailers also offer the silver version). Don't confuse the Xperia X1a with the overseas version Xperia X1i (no "a" for America) that lacks all of AT&T's 3G bands."

Read on, US and Canada readers, if you're trying to decide whether to pick one up from a Sony store. I'll leave the details of the conclusion to the article, but in short, the author really likes this device. If anyone has picked up the Americas version and wants to comment on how well it works here, chime in the thread!
