HTC Touch Pro2 review

With a tilt screen, slide-out keyboard and speakerphone, the HTC Touch Pro2 sets out its serious business credentials? But is it the phone for you?

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS are all built in with Google Maps enabling you to start taking advantage of the GPS immediately.

TV-Out support is also included, but there's no cable in the box for this you'll have to track down an accessory.

With 512MB of ROM and 288MB of RAM, there is plenty of memory on board and straight out of the box our review sample had 252MB of free storage, with a 1GB memory card included.

You can add more with a microSD card, and a slot is under the back plate on the left edge of the casing.

The HTC Touch Pro2 may be a hefty device, but there are a whole lot of impressive business-centric features packed into that casing. Handy additions such as a dual-tilting screen, speakerphone and large keyboard contribute to the size, but are good enough to make it a price worth paying. The TouchFLO 3D skin disguises Windows Mobile better than ever and the proximity sensor that silences the phone or turns it into a speaker is very useful.

Verdict

The HTC Touch Pro2 is a hefty device, but its impressive feature-set makes it a serious business phone for those put decent battery life and the ability to work on the move ahead of bulk.
