Touch Pro 2 Reviews Galore


The time has finally come to see some great reviews of the much anticipated (and frankly, past due) Windows Mobile device.  The Touch Pro 2 is hitting the shelves Wednesday August 12th and more people will be camping out for it than the iPhone 3GS (okay, maybe not).  Everyone’s favorite tech blogs (Engadget, Gizmodo, SlashGear and PhoneDog) have all had their time with the Touch Pro 2 and written typed out their opinions for all to ogle see.  It seems like everyone loves the keyboard (saying that it is one of the best, ever), the huge 3.6 inch WVGA touch screen, the speaker phone and TouchFlo 3D (honestly, who doesn’t? It hides Windows Mobile so well).  They didn’t like that there is no 3.5 mm headphone jack (an adapter is included), there is no UMA calling, HTC decided to make Internet Explorer the default browser (WHAT?! Opera Mobile is included, but kind of hidden, you should find it though), that it doesn’t have a capacitive touch screen (though the resistive touchscreen works beautifully) and that T-Mobile capped conference calling at three people.  There were mixed opinions on the size of the device; some are calling it bulky while others agree that it is manageable for a phone of its stature.  Still having mixed opinions on this device?  Check out the reviews for yourself, or go experience this phone at a local T-Mobile store, it is well worth it.  Oh, and two last things.  The Touch Pro 2 is on the website and will cost $550, um… $279.99? $349.99 with a two year contract and will have a full retail price of $213,487.23 $549.99.  Leave your celebratory comments, thoughts and opinions!  Official photos after the break (not like you didn’t know what it looked like already).
