Ready for some Touch Pro2 action? We are!

Heads up, incoming Touch Pro 2 shots!

[singlepic=7,450,300]

Well well, what do we have here? The hotly anticipated Touch Pro2, courtesy of a very generous and photo happy tipster (thanks!), and finally some varied enough out-of-the-shadows pictures to give us a little more detail. They may not be in the sunlight (sans those white flash spots) but who are we to complain? We think the photo up top, front and center, showcases a particular detail which seems to have been “hotly debated” ever since the Needs Meet Solutions promo shots came around – the row of buttons at the bottom of the phone.

Unlike what many have come to believe to be some heavily protruding buttons, it appears the design is only slightly raised out of the body of the phone. If we’re not going to have flush buttons, this has got to be the second best thing, well, at least compared to horrible depictions of buttons as thick as M&M’s. You can also notice the look of the phone seems much smoother than in that scary promo shot, and not quite so dull. Here’s a direct link to the image if you really can’t remember. Alright, let’s open up the phone and check out some palm of your hand goodness

Fans of QWERTY and touchscreen rejoice! You’ve probably all had your eyes on this device already and just can’t get enough to look at, but here’s one where you can imagine the device in YOUR hand. For anyone on the fence about the looks of this lovely device, you ready to commit? You know you want to… sound off in the comments. Three more pics past the break.

    I am dissappointed that they went with “MOCHA” instead of all black. it would have looked so good all black!

    and whats up with the cameras on HTC devices? crap..

    needless to say i want one!

  • Kenny

    Anyone know how much? I have about 25 days to save whatever the amount might be. I’ve waited for this phone for so long that I really dont care how much it costs, but i still wanna know…

  • Micro

    What these pictures do not show is how heavy this phone is. You can see how big it is, but until you actually hold it you have no idea of how big and heavy this is. I was very surprised when I got to mess with it. I still will be placing my order on the 22nd anyway, but this is no pocket phone.

    This phone is going to be bad ass! Simple as that! I can’t wait! 22 days and a wake up!

    man i cant wait to get my hands on this phone..it come out on my bday so i gotta get this one..

  • Mjason

    Well I went to my local TMobile store and held my dream phone. It’s everything i was hoping for. It’s heavy, which i don’t care. It’s incredibly well built. Very tight, no gaps. Tight slider, much nicer then kaiser. Amazing screen that adjusts brightness compared to the ambient light. great speakerphone. The official release is sometime in August. I can’t remember because i was staring at the phone :) the price is+++++======= $299.00 I’m getting TWO! :)

    Okay, there seem to be a lot of concerns over the front camera, the apps, & the color that need clarification. Although it looks like the thread may have died already, here goes…

    Duck, is the front camera there or not? There looks like there’s something right beside the speaker in the pics (even the pic on the spec sheet) but it’s not clear and the tmonews logo covers that area in what would be the best shot to see it in. Or is that just an air bubble under a screen protector? Did that phone have a protector on it? Light sensor?

    J-Hop, “mega-pixel” has to do with SIZE not QUALITY. I really wish people could get this straight. I have an old Fuji digital non-mp camera that takes better pics than my sister’s far more expensive mega-pixel camera. What would be pointless is wasting a mega-pixel camera for video conferencing. The image just doesn’t need to be that big. I think the real reason some people want that front camera is for self portrait pics for myspace, etc., and a 0.3mp cam could still do a good enough job for that.

    docprego, if by “integrated” you mean an app, then there is one for Handango and it’s called ‘Handango In Hand’ and a link icon for the download was included in my WinMo 6.1 upgrade from T-mo for my Shadow. And for the rest of you app freaks there are plenty of sites where you can DL apps right on your phone, with tons of FREE ones. How many free apps can you get in your app stores or marketplaces, really? Those things, including Handango, are created to suck the $$$ right out of your wallet.

    And, finally, the color. If I know T-Mobile, and I’ve been with them since it was PowerTel and Voicestream, they will probably come out with at least two color options, although maybe not at launch. It’s become evident to me that they seem to gear one color option for the ladies and one or more for the guys or whoever. I, personally, would like to see one with a black face, matte grey ‘rubberized’ or whatever you call it (like my copper Shadow. I love that. no scratches) on the sides & back, with a darker grey keyboard. I wish this one was darker, it looks like brass or a matte gold to me, rather than copper. But, hey, I’ll take what I can get. I’m after function.

    And, Mjason, just how did you get your hands on one in the store when they haven’t even been released yet? I have trouble even finding a working demo of any phone in the t-mo store, rather than a dummy model. (which ticks me off to no end when I want to see one function) And is that $299 retail, or with a one or two year contract? If that’s the contract price, it means I won’t be getting one until next year when it drops.

    And, one thing I see that I don’t like. Those raised volume rocker buttons are going to be a real pain.

    I’ve seen it. I love it. It looks great, and I love that it will broadcast WiFi. It ran smooth and fast, streaming video was great.

  • HogCall

    What idiot takes pictures of their phone with finger prints all over it??

  • Brett

    I noticed on the Dash 3G, and am predicting it to be on the Touch Pro 2, the “INTERNET SHARING” application thats built into WIndows Mobile.

    Does anyone know if this application will share the 3G internet and function as a modem. My guess is yes but looking for some validation on that hunch.

    XD
