Quickie is a new column wherein I’ll provide quick reviews of devices I’ve used for a few days, complete with pictures & video, pros & cons, and camera samples.
The HTC Touch Pro2 (Sprint version) is a lot like the HTC Touch Pro, but bigger & heavier…
It features a larger & higher resolution screen (800×480 pixels), a tilting keyboard, a CDMA+GSM radio (unlocked, but the GSM firmware is crippled not to connect to US networks), a standard 3.5 mm audio connector (missing on the GSM-only model), and the same 3 megapixel auto-focus camera (albeit without flash).
The hardware is top-notch, but the software falls short – HTC’s TouchFlo 3D interface is excellent, but underneath, Windows Mobile 6.1 is still a mess!
