HTC Touch Pro gets handled, keyboard better than X1's?






The question on quite literally every WinMo fanatic's mind as we go into the second half of the year here is, "Touch Pro or X1?" It's not an easy question to answer, and anyone hoping to sink some cash on either one of these models in a few months is going to want to do so with a crap-ton of research and anecdotal information under their belts lest the buyer's remorse set in particularly quickly. MobileBurn scored an early look at the Touch Pro -- which won't be available at retail for a month or three yet -- and came away impressed with the all-important keyboard, saying that it was "much more" usable than the QWERTY found on Sony Ericsson's rival superphone. Closed, it's said to be virtually indistingushable from the Touch Diamond (which we'd say is a good thing) other than being a bit thicker to accomodate they keyboard and picking up a matte-finish rear cover. Unfortunately, HTC refused to show off the Touch Pro's interface -- apparently on account of some new tricks up TouchFLO 3D's sleeve that haven't already made their way into the Touch Diamond -- but they did share that the new model will handle landscape mode with particular aplomb. So this one might have the X1 beat in the keyboard department, but the X1's WVGA display takes the crown for sheer pixel count. Decisions!



dam this hoe cant come out soon enuff

I liked this part from the story:

Here is what they consider "a bit thicker"



Regardless, I'd still take the Pro over the Diamond any day.

Edit: That picture might be a little misleading. They look much closer to the same thickness in this shot. Can't wait.

Re: HTC Touch Pro gets handled, keyboard better than X1's?

Am I looking at the picture correctly... is that symbol of the headphones saying that the usb port doubles as the headphone jack? Not sure I like that...

Yep, most recent HTC's (Titan and Vogue for instance) are using extUSB to provide audio out of the USB port. The Pro is going to have video output as well.

A2DP bluetooth headphones are available on the cheap now anyways - wired headphones are a thing of the past imo...

I noticed the Touch Pro has the reset button on the outside on the bottom too. Doesnt look like the Diamond has that for some odd reason...
