now, here in Barcelona, HTC is announcing its next wave Windows Mobile
smartphones - the
HTC Touch Pro2. Building on the success of their predecessors, both devices
are an extension of HTC's innovative design and incorporate a new people-centric
approach to mobile communication. With the continued advancement of smartphone
technology, the amount of correspondence is ever increasing. As this flow of
information continues to build, there is a parallel increase in communication
With the HTC Touch Diamond2 and HTC Touch Pro2, HTC has effectively broken
through the noise. Both devices allow all voice, text, and E-Mail communication
from a specific contact to be sorted and viewed at the touch of the finger. This
information can be viewed from both the contact card and the in-call screen
during a phone conversation to allow any necessary correspondence to be queued
"The HTC Touch Pro2 and HTC Touch Diamond2 introduce a mobile
communication experience that simplifies how we communicate with people in
our lives whether through voice, text or email," said Peter Chou, president
and CEO, HTC Corp. "HTC is delivering the latest, cutting-edge
sophistication in a broad portfolio of mobile phones that improve how people
live, work and communicate."
The HTC Touch Diamond2 and HTC Touch Pro2 utilize HTC's latest TouchFLO 3D
interface. TouchFLO 3D has been more deeply integrated into a customized version
of Windows Mobile 6.1 to deliver more consistency throughout Windows Mobile
applications and menus. Focused on making navigation easier and more intuitive,
TouchFLO 3D brings important information to the top-level user interface,
including quick access to people, messaging, email, photos, music and weather.
As part of this improved Windows Mobile integration the touch focus areas have
been enlarged to be more finger-touch friendly.
With the HTC Touch Diamond2 and HTC Touch Pro2, HTC is introducing a new
people-centric communication approach, providing a single contact view that
displays the individual conversation history of contacts regardless of whether
voice, text or email were used. This can be viewed from the contact card or the
in-call screen during a phone conversation, ensuring the latest communication
contact-by-contact is always at hand.
Continuing its commitment to making the mobile Internet easier and more
enjoyable, the HTC Touch Diamond2 and HTC Touch Pro2 introduce HTC's Push
Internet technology. HTC Push Internet alleviates slow downloading and rendering
of Web pages on a mobile phone. Users can preselect their favorite Websites to
get immediate access to them when needed.
UPDATE: While the new HTC Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2 are initially
announced with Windows Mobile 6.1, Peter Chou just noticed during the end of the
press conference, that both devices will get their Windows Mobile 6.5
Professional upgrades; either by time of the launch or after. While Windows
Mobile 6.5 isn't officially announced yet, Microsoft's Andy Lees was right
beside Peter Chou and confirmed that Microsoft will announce "something new"
this afternoon. Stay tuned for more info.
