Product Category: PDA Phone
Manufacturer: HTC
Where to Buy: Expansys [Affiliate]
Price: $699.99 USD
Specifications: From the Expansys site


  • Elegant design;
  • Large, sharp and vibrant screen;

  • Excellent speakerphone;
  • Nicely designed hardware keyboard will satisfy those for whom only a hardware keyboard will do.


  • Very expensive;
  • Large and heavy.

Summary: As rival phone manufacturers continue to strive to emulate the success of the iPhone, HTC weighs in with its most sophisticated finger friendly WinMo Professional phones yet. The Touch Pro2, the topic of this review, supersedes last year's Touch Pro, with a revamped version of Touch Flo 3D, which strives to make stylus use a thing of the past. Have HTC been successful? Let's put the Touch Pro2 through its paces...

Telstra Snags a Duo for Australia: HTC Touch Pro2 and LG GM730f

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 08:55 PM

"The new arrivals include the world-first launch of the LG GM730f - which is upgradeable to Windows Mobile® 6.5 later this year - as well as the LG Xenon, both exclusive to Telstra. Two further new additions include the TelstraOne Experience user interface from Sony Ericsson and the HTC Touch Pro2 smartphone for professionals."

Telstra has announced that the HTC Touch Pro2 and LG GM730f will be available from July 21 and July 28 respectively. You probably already know all there is to know about the Touch Pro2. The GM730f, on the other hand, is somewhat of an unknown. It boasts 7.2 Mbps HSDPA support (though, still well under the Next G network's current speed of 21 Mbps, and the eventual 42 Mbps slated for later in the year), a 3.0-inch touch screen, a 5.0-megapixel camera, LG's S-Class UI, and upgradeability to Windows Mobile 6.5. It'll set you back $0 on a plan over 24 months, or $979 AUD outright.

Touch Pro2 For T-Mo in August!

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 10:30 AM

"We'd been holding out hope that T-Mobile's version of the HTC Touch Pro2 would materialize for customers in the month of July, but that's looking less and less likely now that we have some awfully real-looking documentation that claims otherwise. TmoNews has nabbed some sort of slide suggesting that HTC's latest AWS-equipped superphone won't hit retail until August 12"

Are you a "successful professional who tend[s] to be [an] early adopter and place[s] high value on having top-of-the-line products"? Are you also a "t-mobile customer frustrated that 3G Windows Mobile phones are only now starting to roll out, when AT&T has had them for years?". Then the Touch Pro2 may be your saving grace. It looks pretty good - I'm thinking of having a Mass Jon Firesale of Pocket PCs to finance one of these (And perhaps a MyTouch as well, for a good ole' fashion Android vs. WinMo Showdown!).

Touch Pro2 Delayed?

Posted by Ed Hansberry in "Pocket PC News" @ 09:30 AM

T-Mobile was expected to release the Touch Pro2 on July 22 in the US, but now there are rumors that it could be delayed until early August. Of course, and this is the device I am waiting on. My old phone died and I've resurrected my HTC Universal for daily duty. I seriously need a new device. My three week wait may have just become five or six weeks. Ugh.

Update: T-Mobile's official Twitter account has confirmed that the Touch Pro2 will make it this summer.

Vanishing T-Mobile Wing Rumors Falsified; Touch Pro2 Expected on July 22

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC News" @ 10:55 AM

Well, word on the street is that the Wing has mysteriously taken to the skies, though if you look hard enough, you'll see that it still has its feet firmly planted on the T-Mobile site. Just don't bet on picking one up anytime soon; it's out of stock and for good reason, too. The Dash 3G (HTC Snap) is just around the corner, while T-Mobile's worst-kept secret of the quarter, the Touch Pro2, is expected on July 22. Anyone planning on picking either of the two up when released?

T-Mobile-Branded Touch Pro2 Coming Soon?

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 08:25 AM

The folks at TmoNews have managed to grab a snap of what appears to be T-Mobile's inventory list, and somewhere in the middle of it all, there's the Touch Pro2. Of course, normally, we'd ask you to take it with a grain of salt, but when shots like these emerge, it all becomes just that little bit more believable. Official subscription costs and a release date are still a question mark, but expect to hear more as the weeks unfold.

HTC Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2 Reviewed

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Articles" @ 02:15 AM

If you're eyeballing the HTC Touch Diamond2 or Touch Pro2 as a suitable replacement for your archaic/ailing handset, then you may be interested in what and (Russian to English translation) have to say about the respective devices. The long story short is that they're very impressive devices. And, as you probably already know, HTC is committed to providing free Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrades later in the year. If all that has convinced you to purchase, head over to our affiliate hardware store. The Touch Pro2 is available for pre-order; however, the Touch Diamond2 is already in stock (48 units, at the time of writing) and ready to ship, so you could have one in your hands as early as this week.

HTC Will Be Offering a Windows Mobile 6.5 Upgrade, For Free, On the Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Pocket PC Talk" @ 03:43 PM

I just received word back from an HTC representative that they are indeed going to be offering a free upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.5 on both their Touch Diamond2 and the Touch Pro2:

"What I can say on the matter is that HTC has committed to offer a free upgrade from Windows Mobile 6.1 to Windows Mobile 6.5 for both the Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2. I don't have details on timing by carrier or region - just that we will be offering the upgrade for free."

This fact had been assumed by some people, but every written comment I could find simply stated that these two phones were "upgradeable" to 6.5. As we all know, being technically upgradeable means nothing in this market - only a public comittment to actually do the upgrade is what matters. Now that HTC has made this comittment, you can go ahead with your Touch Pro2 and Touch Diamond2 purchases from our affiliate store. ;-)

HTC Promises Touch Pro2 Will Be Available In All Major Markets

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC News" @ 10:30 PM

With the backlash from the Touch HD incident probably still fresh in their minds, the folks at HTC saw it fit to promise the Touch Pro2 to all major markets, including North America. So, to those of you who were denied a Touch HD, is this any consolation?
