HTC Touch Pro2 Review— The Touch Gets Even Better With an Updated QWERTY Keyboard

The HTC Touch Pro2 from T-Mobile has really changed the game with it’s new keyboard. Unlike the old HTC Touch, the Pro2’s keyboard isn’t as thin and therefore easier to use.

Size
The HTC Touch Pro2 comes with a newer, bigger keyboard, but it also has it’s downsides. The overall size of the Pro2 is big and heavy. This isn’t a tight-pants pocket friendly phone. However, you can tell that the phone is incredibly durable and made well. It’s definitely not going to break from a few drops here or there.

Perfect for business
The HTC Touch Pro2 comes with special conference call functionality. You can pull email addresses straight from emails and create a conference call (as long as those email addresses are connected to a contact with a phone number, of course). You can also take the conventional route and just select numbers and start the conference call. Once you’re on the conference call, set the phone on the table to automatically engage speakerphone. If you have something you have to say to one person in particular, you can single them out so only they can hear you, and then both return to the conference call.

Toggling apps becomes easier
A bunch of applications come built into the HTC Touch Pro2, such as Adobe Reader, a voice recorder for your important notes, Jetcet Presenter 5, a business card scanner among other things. To manage all these, in the upper-right hand corner there is now both a task manager and an application switcher. Too many things running and eating up your RAM? Click on task manager and shut some stuff down. It isn’t the smoothest of application management systems out there, but it’s effective.

Built for multimedia
Some phones claim they’re made for multimedia, but it’s just a marketing ploy. Some of them don’t even come with WiFi! The HTC Touch Pro2 isn’t one of those shams; it’s integrated WiFi makes it easy to browse the web for clips. Just because it’s easy to find the clips doesn’t mean it is to watch them, though, as buffer times are pretty slow. All your built in multimedia will work great, and if you have any videos on your microSD card you can sit your phone down on the table and use the hinges on the screen to watch instead of holding it the whole time. Talk about convenience!
