HTC Touch Pro2

Sweet baby jesus, i'm in love.

http://www.engadget.com/2009/02/16/h...ever-could-be/


So, how do you make HTC's Touch Pro -- already near the top of the WinMo heap -- an even beefier device? For starters, you can throw out that nasty VGA screen of yesteryear and up it with a 3.6-inch 800 x 480 replacement. Next, add a dedicated touch-sensitive zoom slider that works overtime to take maximum advantage of said screen, then throw in a few key carryovers: 512MB of ROM, 288MB of RAM, microSD expansion, and a 3.2 megapixel cam. Meet the Touch Pro2, the official follow-up to HTC's popular series of QWERTY sliders that introduces so-called "Straight Talk" technology for "seamlessly" transitioning conversations between email, single-line calls, and party calls. It'll also automatically switch to the crazy high-performance, full-duplex speakerphone simply by flipping the phone over, so it's clear that this bad boy was meant for business. It'll launch early in the second quarter in parts of Asia and Europe with other "major global markets" following in early Summer. Check out a shot of the Touch Pro2 in its fully (and delightfully) articulated position after the break.

Guess not too many people are interested in the phone.

I'm sweating balls waiting for it.

I'd love the bigger screen than what's on my TouchPro now.

This is nice, but there is no mega internal storage like the iPhone and the Pre...when will manufacturers catch on and add that extra memory...Mp3 and digital media isn't going away any time soon...

I'd be all over that if it weren't for the projected $700 pricetag.

Yea, that's the only thing i'm not going to like.
I'll grab it from some sucker on craigslist for $500 or so, and sell my old phones to recoup a little cost. Should only cost me $250 when done, assuming i can find someone selling one for $500 eventually.
