Following the great success of the HTC TyTN II and the later released HTC Touch Pro, the recently announced HTC Touch Pro2 combines best of both worlds. Together with the HTC Touch Diamond2, it's one of the first Windows Phones that features Microsoft's new Windows Mobile 6.5 button requirements which includes the typical call send/end keys and the Windows key. The back button (as introduced with earlier HTC Touch smartphones) isn't a Microsoft requirement at all but HTC is still the opinion that this back/ok combination makes sense. While the HTC Touch Pro2 and Touch Diamond2 aren't sharing the main design anymore, like the HTC Touch Diamond2, the HTC Touch Pro2 is also not sporting a D-Pad anymore. But unlike the original HTC Touch Pro, the Touch Pro2 is again featuring the tilt-screen as introduced with the HTC TyTN II.

The HTC Touch Pro2 has a stronger business focus than the HTC Touch Diamond2, for instance it's featuring a microphone/loudspeaker combination on the backside which can be used for hands-free conference calls. Also the main camera is a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera only.
The slide-out keyboard is well-sized and has an excellent tactile feedback which makes it a pleasure to use it:







The European release of the HTC Touch Pro2 is planned for late Q2-2009. Beside T-Mobile, which announced plans to launch the HTC Touch Pro2 as the T-Mobile MDA Vario V, it's not yet known which other mobile operators might carry the Touch Pro2 as well.

Also don't miss our short hands-on videoview of the HTC TouchPro2 I was able to record  during last week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
