Daylight Photos/Video: Touch Pro2

[singlepic=17,451,300]

Been looking forward to seeing the Touch Pro2 in daylight for once? Pictures have surfaced of T-Mobile’s next Windows Mobile device that actually do not feature the device in a somewhat dark room. Not that we don’t appreciate ALL photos of this phone that we’ve seen, but it’s great to actually see it in a room full of sunlight. Our photographer had this to say during the 45 minutes he had to use it and take pictures (and video!): “All my concerns about color are now gone, I love it! The phone feels like a precision instrument, build quality is off the charts! It also felt amazingly slim in my hand, no concerns about being a brick at all! It was thinner than my iPhone I had with me in its leather case. Absolutely incredible device.”

Huge thanks to our forum member docprego, who provided the photography and links to his YouTube videos in this thread. If you’re not yet a member of our forums, feel free to join and get any questions you have regarding docprego’s experience in his thread and maybe he’ll reply – he’s sitting on a pile of footage you might be able to see if you request nicely.

Note that these pictures/videos were taken with an iPhone so that would explain the image quality, not that it makes them unappreciated by any means from TP2 fanatics all over.

Lots more after the break…

    Fuck a FIRST!! but yea, nice shit.. cant wait for it to hurry up and get released.. i think this really makes it look better.. the OP even said its as slim as the iPhone in its case and that its not a “brick” or “blocky” :thumbsup:

  • J-Hop2o6

    no watermark?

  • docprego

    What is the significance of the watermark?

  • docprego

    I see, well they are in my Photobucket account so I wonder if that will count for anything?

  • Winbadd

    Celebration TIme, for sureeee

  • jtothada

    if i had to say, i think the black/chrome looked better but i like this it has its own flavor in somekinda way, but im still getting the phone i dont care if it way yellow and mint green TOUCH PRO 2 FTW!!!! mytouch go shoot yourself!!!!!

  • Hype

    Thanks for all this – It’s about time I saw a Tmobile phone I actually wanted. I’ve had my same tmo phone since like 2005/6. August 12th eh? I’m gettin one. And if it turns out to be crap, my 6-year post-sprint run with tmo is done. But honestly I’m pretty excited right now and the phone looks like everything I need and want. How do the pre-sales or sales work?

    It’s so funny, I’ve never actually wanted a phone (i could have) on release day, so I don’t know what to do to make sure I have one of these puppies on its way to me (I’m not near a tmobile store) on August 12th.

  • Galen20K

    Thank you so Much for the Pics and Video’s, they are Truly Amazing!

  • FILA

    very nice, but not to excited about the Windows Mobile, excited about the phone but not the OS. Can somebody please Flash Android on this!!!!! That would be the ultimate phone then

  • Say-Low

    Hmmm.. I heard this was more of a business / work type phone that’s why I skipped this one. Overall, it’s nice. I still love my MT3G =D.

  • dee_shock

    I really thought that it was going to be an issue with the color of this phone because I’d already set my hopes on the original color. But after seeing this phone in better lighting I honestly like this version better, besides it blends in with my skin tone. My one complaint other then no 3.5mm jack is the tilting screen not tilting upward enough. Great pictures n videos please keep it coming.

  • Mike

    Does the TP2 have an app store like the MT3G? Are there apps that you can download to the phone like the ones andriod offers?

  • imjussayin

    Great vids….i asked about the the TP2 and all they brought out was the D3G and the MT3G. These vids are as good as it gets w/o actually holding one tho. I was set on the Blk/silver/chrome version also but after seeing the vids i’m willing to wait a ‘lil longer for a test drive. Hope the color scheme wows when i see the real deal as they are a little washed out on the PC. Bring it on Magenta!

  • tyrel@tmo

    OOOOHH!!!! NO NASTY FINGERPRINTS ON THIS ONE!!! lmao

  • ARELL

    WHEN IS IT GONNA LAUNCH

  • ignorance

    wow that makes it look so sexy i havent seen the back till now they dropped the fake grill look of the factory direct i actualy think they made the phone look nicer for tmo wich is so nice i was afraid they were going to botch it up like when they made the touch pro into the fuze for at&t.

    SO NICE!!!

  • jiggasupreme

    does the screen have a glassy feel to it or a plasticy one?

  • mrssherico

    Very nice pics and video. Just enough to hold my obsession under control for a little while longer!

  • fortknox

    Does T-mobile offer front video chat for any of their phones?

  • ACCELL

    Damn thats an ugly brick!!!!

  • J-Hop2o6

    also, i wonder why HTC/TmoUSA didn’t brand this phone with the Touch Pro2 name on the back.. hmm

  • J-Hop2o6

    other websites try to take credit for exclusives sometimes.. i wonder why TmoNews hasn’t done that yet with these yet

  • J-Hop2o6

    maybe.. i dunno

  • David

    We took the post down on the forums and will do so on the blog in order to watermark them, we thank you for posting them here!!

  • brunoid

    Watermark or no watermark… GREAT shots docprego!!! Glad you had the opportunity to play with it and THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing with us! Nice job!

  • Mystictrust

    I rather like the way HTC’s version has the Touch Pro2 branding. Looks as if they were trying to give the myFaves logo some space… a whole lot of space ;)

  • docprego

    LOL I actually went in the store figuring I would see a myTouch 3G demo on display. They had one in the drawer and asked me if I wanted to check it out. Once I asked about the TP2 the rest was history! I was so engrossed with the TP2 I never even saw the myTouch during my entire 45 minutes in the store!

  • J-Hop2o6

    HAHA that’s horrible,, but good one =)

  • docprego

    You’re welcome. If you think the photos and videos are amazing wait until you actually have this in your hand! It is even more amazing in person!

  • docprego

    I think that is a common statement people make about this phone, possibly because it is running Windows Mobile. However this is a great phone for anyone. Combine the huge tilting screen with the loud speaker and multimedia is fantastic. I can’t overstate how incredible the keyboard is, that too makes this a great phone for those who like to text or email. Sure it’s a great business phone, but it’s also a great everyday phone too.

  • jtothada

    damn when i went my store didnt have one, im a go to one of the more popular stores in houston or when i go to new orleans im ah go to the store where my boy used to work at and i’m ah do a 1ft look at it, a 10 to 15min video, showing all the hardware buttons, going thru the UI, comparisons, to other phones and much more, thats what im looking for, hopefully he would let me do a real full unboxing,

  • jtothada

    and thank you for your vids man much appreciated

  • flyyphone

    Lmao@ blends with your skintone. Classic.

  • Fresh

    I agree I like this version better too. I think brown looks like a much more distinguished color. Just my opinion tho

  • flyyphone

    Windows is releasing an app store but it already has tons of apps out you just have to search the net for them.

    Heres a list of a few here, but there’s a lot more.

  • Brett

    handango (mobile device store) comes pre-installed on all of T-Mobiles windows mobile phones. Its funny to see someone ask about the appstore like its something apple came up with. LOL.

  • Brett

    I would order the customer care on the 12th and get overnight shipping so you dont get hit with a backorder if your not in a store. ENJOY!! Im excited for you!!

  • Mike

    I’m right there with you Hype. I have had my same old V360 for about five years plus, but after some patient waiting on TMO to come out with a useful phone for my needs I will be getting this phone as soon as it is available for me to purchase. I’m sure it will last me a good long time as well. This will only be my third TMO phone is over 10 years with them. Basically if it hasn’t been an upgrade with some intrinsic value to it I just waited for something better to come along. I believe this is it.

  • Brett

    Oh!! Just to tell you a little more about handango. It wont have as many free apps and what not but you will be able to purchase and install apps without the trial and error delima you find with the android apps. There are a ton of apps on the market for Android but majority of them blow really bad so the selection seems bigger while you actually get about the same handful of proven useful apps. Also, Microsoft has developed OTA based syncronization services like you get with the google services on android. Its in beta right now so you can go ahead and be part of the development and use the application and later you will see it release with the winmo 6.5 update.

  • docprego

    The Windows Marketplace is a feature of Windows Mobile 6.5. Once our devices receive the WM 6.5 upgrade (which they probably will), the marketplace will be live. A recent report said it will launch with 600 apps. Sounds kind of low but the reality is that there are thousands of WM apps currently out there. It’s just a matter of time before the WM Marketplace explodes.

  • chip

    Windows Mobile has thousands of free programs, and thousands of pay apps. I am sure that as long as you don’t want a stupid video of lighter on your phone, there is an app for that. maybe even the video of a stupid lighter.

  • docprego

    Of course color preference is all personal but I was VERY impressed with the colors. It just came across as a very elegant, superbly built device. I have no reservations about the appearance at all having now seen it in person.

  • Mike

    August 12 if they keep with the current launch date.

  • questionmark425

    Actually, the Fuse is much closer looking to the original touch pro from HTC. The Sprint touch pro is much different aesthetically then the original. So I guess if keeping it the same is botching it up that would be accurate. I’m very excited to get this device into my hands, I was going to get a MT3G, but after seeing how crippled the ram is on the “With Google” branded devices, I’m going to stick with good ‘ol WinMO.
