Review: HTC Touch Pro2
The TP2 is a strong smartphone from HTC. It offers a lot of the features that business users demand, such as a solid browser, good email, fast 3G / Wi-Fi browsing, GPS and so on. It also has a few good media features that help smooth out some of its workaholic edges. But there are trade-offs.
It may have a great display, ample QWERTY keyboard and every radio known to mankind, but it's also huge! You can't expect a small phone to have big features, however, and that's the trade-off users will make with the Touch Pro2. You want the big screen? You want the big keyboard? you're gonna get a big phone. Size plays a role with many people. Be sure to get your hands on this phone in a store before you commit to owning it for two years. Size and weight can get old fast.
The TouchFLO user interface from HTC still works well and is intuitive to use. The problem is that the phone lags a bit when using it. This is something we've hoped HTC would clear up by now. It hasn't.
Given how competitive the market is these days, the Touch Pro2's hefty $350 price tag is enough to scare away many potential users, but for those using the device for work, that's a pretty good deal given all the productivity enhancing features contained within.
