Replying to: HTC Touch Pro - Great Phone! by beechaviator
Re: HTC Touch Pro - Great Phone!
I picked up a Touch Pro at BestBuy yesterday. It was a really great deal at 299.99 less a 20% discount under my reward zone account ('til 11/1/2008 - out the door for $240 +tax and no mail in rebate. BestBuy had 8 phones shipped to each store the sales rep told me.
PROS: Looks like a nice replacement for my Mogul and has many new applications which were missing from the Mogul. JetCET 5 is added so you can network print; YouTube capability has been added and the Opera browser is nice except it won't work with at some of my secure financial sites. The GPS works well and I added Google Maps for Mobile 6 and a few other Windows apps.
CONS: The touch interface is not as well done as the iPhone and sometimes is slow to respond but still works well. I miss the buttons and scroll wheel on the outside of the phone and it takes a few extra presses on the screen to get the desired action, but then I'm sure I'll get use to the new interface soon enough.
All-in-all a pretty nice phone but still needs more memory like the touch which has 4GM. Micro card is under the battery cover so it is not as easy to get to if you remove and replace the card often.
Again, a nice phone for the price.
Have you tried the business card reader? This is something i am intrested in from the phone and i hope that alltel keeps in their release.
