MWC: HTC Touch Pro2 - for "business professionals"

Touch Pro2 is designed for touch-use and offers a range of new, cool features.

The successor to the HTC Touch Pro has just been revealed at Mobile World Congress. While there may not be much new thinking as regards the name, so I think we certainly have something to look forward to.

Touch Pro2 is designed for business use. A large finger-friendly QWERTY keyboard can be pushed out during the phone and a widescreen display to the entire 3.6 inches gives you a great overview. The screen becomes a new tilted up in the angle, thus improving visibility.

The HTC device is "optimized for touch and email use."

Extending memory is, of course Monday is tempted to say, even a possibility.

We will among others see a few new developments on the software front. HTC's innovative TouchFlo 3D has become even more integrated with the Windows Mobile 6.1 and it is now easier and more intuitive to use.

Touch areas have also been enlarged so that it should now be easier to use the phone with your fingers.

Also, it will now be easier to keep track of when you last talked to your contacts - and on what. Each contact will contain your conversation history, whether you use SMS, email or telephone ..

Allegedly, it should also be quicker to use mobile phone to surf the Internet. HTC Push technology allows faster downloads of files and web pages.

Another new detail, which is reserved for HTC Touch Pro2 is Straight Talk. Allegedly, it should mean better separation of noise and overall better sound in the device. When the phone is folded up and put on the table, it is automatically converted to a speaker system so that the whole conference room can follow the conversation.

HTC Touch Pro2 come to market in early summer.
