WMExperts reviews the HTC Touch Pro 2

We have seen other reviews before, but most of them are not from Windows Mobile Experts.  That is what WMExperts claim however, so their opinion does carry some weight.

Like most other commentators they were thoroughly impressed with the unit, lamenting in the main only the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Their conclusion was:

thumb_450_TP2 with CaseSimply put, the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 is an outstanding Windows Mobile phone. T-Mobile definitely beat AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon to the punch by releasing this phone first and should be applauded for how they have presented this Windows Mobile phone.

From phone performance to style to representing the Windows Mobile line, the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 receives high marks across the board.

While it sounds like the Touch Pro 2 may be the best thing since sliced bread, this version does have room for improvement. Most noticeably the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Sprint and Verizon versions have it. Shame T-Mobile missed out, but that’s the price for being first, I guess.

I would have also liked to have seen just a little texture to the finish on the sides of the Touch Pro 2 to add some grip to the phone and the speakerphone needs a little boost in volume.

And, no, we didn’t forget that we’re still dealing with a resistive touchscreen. Can’t really fault HTC or T-Mobile for that, and we’ll just have to continue to wait for capacitive screens with Windows Mobile 7.

The Touch Pro is still an impressive phone and HTC built upon that framework, as it did with the Diamond series, to make another impressive phone with the Touch Pro 2. The Touch Pro 2’s appearance is conservative enough for the business professional but has enough pizzaz to appeal to the more casual user. If I were a T-Mobile customer, there’s little doubt that the Touch Pro 2 would be my phone of choice.
