Well it all depends if they are nerdy like the rest of us geekers... if not... cut the Pro2 from that lineup. I would probably suggest the Hero as it is better than the Moment at this moment in time(haha).

take her to the store and see what she likes better. they each have their strengths and weaknesses. tp2 is winmo, full keyboard. hero is android, no keyboard with sense ui. moment is android with keyboard, no sense. there's also a hefty price difference between the android devices and the winmo device.

Also note that the Touch Pro2 has a Resistive touch screen versus the two android devices having Capacitive.

Re: What is the best wifi phone for sprint Moment./ Hero or Touch Pro 2?

Thank you dont kill for saying this but i have right now a htc pro 2 ... with sprint i cancel my service for the main reason that the phone was wayyy to crazy for me like someone here said for nerds lol i have it with a mightrom and all bunch of things but i got tired of phone having crashes and having to hard reset the phone and me putting 345 contacts so i got another phone and im sure my girl is not going to be like me comming here to hook up phone . The hero is nice but im not sure if texting is good and the moment has a key pad like the pro 2 but i i dont know much about the moment

Actually the BB Curve 8530 has Wifi as well. Unfortunately BB took the flash off of the new model. If she wants a kb then the Moment is a nice phone, it is supposed to get updated to Android 2.1 by the end of Q1 (March 10).

Before my TP1 was replaced w/TP2 I was looking at the Moment or waiting for the new BB Tour 2 (Wifi w/ flash). Hope this helped.

Re: What is the best wifi phone for sprint Moment./ Hero or Touch Pro 2?

i have a friend that absolutely loves his hero and texts like mad on it... i hate onscreen keyboards for myself though (swype is the ONLY exception). the hero has sense which is a bit more polished of a UI as opposed to the moment which has the bare android interface. hero has a better camera and as mentioned above they both have capacitive touch screens. the moment has an amoled display which is prety impressive. as far as i know though aside from that there isn't much difference in the capabilities of the phones. the keyboard imho is the biggest dealmaker/dealbreaker between the two.

i can honestly say for myself that if i hadn't gotten a free upgrade to the tp2 i would either be still runnin the tp1 or upgraded to the moment... the tp2 is just too darn pricey and as customizable as winmo is, android devices running almost the same software are waaaay more affordable

So i guess is hero lol i just need to sell my pro 2 then so i can get money for hero on ebay. The number one thing i guess would be the camera i hear the hero has a nice camera but im wondering if it has a timer......... lets just say that she likes taking pics of her self : ) and of course she likes to text all day in facebook.

Re: What is the best wifi phone for sprint Moment./ Hero or Touch Pro 2?

check with the folks in the Hero forum...

besides, if there is "no" feature such as the timer...I'm sure you can find an app that does that. When dealing with "smart" devices most minor features can be found in apps.

You should look at the hardware for these devices since those can't be installed or reg edited to be made to work.

Remember, if the phone is for your girlfriend, you should ask her what she wants....because ultimately you'll have to deal with her if she's not happy with what you got her.

Facebook...WinMo's facebook app is practically worthless; can't say much about Android's facebook interface...but I do suggest access facebook via m.facebook.com thru the phone's browser.
