Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
The HTC Touch Pro 2 has been a pretty heavily anticipated device. T-Mobile is selling them now on their website at http://www.t-mobile.com/shop/phones/Cell-Phone-Detail.aspx?cell-phone=HTC-Touch-Pro-2.
The fine folks at engadget.com give you a review of the product at http://www.engadget.com/2009/08/12/t-mobile-touch-pro2-review/.
I haven’t had a chance to spend any quality time with one yet, but I would keep in mind we haven’t launched Windows Mobile 6.5 yet. According to the internet rumors, ATT and Verizon are launching the Touch Pro 2 pretty soon as well. That’s probably a good thing because $349 is out of my range for a device these days.
Looks like a cool device. If T-Mobile’s 3G network is providing good coverage across the US now, I know a few T-Mobile customers that are going to be very happy.
The iPhone, along with the smartphone proliferation has pushed prices up too high.
I would like to see the max price be about 300 and the average price to be about 150.
How is this different from the late, unlamented ATT Tilt (a steaming pile that nearly drove me crazy and also from HTC) and others of its ilk. Overweight, ugly and, worst of all, running WinMo. Seriously, the only smart phones worth consideration are Pre, Android gen2 phones like MyTouch and Hero, and the Jesus Phone.
