The Touch Pro2 features a touchscreen LCD and a QWERTY keyboard and HTC reckons it is perfect for business users.

Aesthetically the Touch Pro2 is a mixed bag because while it looks like a premium device, it is also heavy and bulky. Because of this the smartphone makes itself felt when it’s being held or when it’s in your trouser pocket. The size and weight also suggest that this smartphone will mostly be adopted by men because it maybe too large and heavy for most women to consider.

Thankfully when you do get busy with the HTC it is a fairly slick device. The keyboard is pleasant to work with and its 528MHz processor can handle Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional with ease, so you’re never really left waiting for applications to load or for a function to complete. The 3.6-inch LCD touchscreen is also responsive to quick movements though it is not quite as responsive as LG’s Chocolate BL40.

As a fully-fledged business device the Touch Pro2 fell short of our expectations primarily because it lacks 3G data support. As a result you’ll have to rely on older and thus slower communication technologies such as GPRS for data transfers when you’re on the go. Thankfully the Pro also features 802.11b/g support, so when you’re in a WiFi serviced area, you can use this wireless technology for data transfer.

Verdict: While the Pro2 is a usable device, its size, weight and lack of 3G support reduce its competitiveness.

Pros: 3G, sleek UI (Touch PRO II), Relatively good battery life, Great voice quality

Cons: A bit heavy.

Disregard the reviewer's comment about 3G. I upgraded to HTC Touch PRO II because it offered 3G. Reviewer: For integrity's sake, please correct your review.
