The HTC Touch Pro2, HTC announced back in February during the Mobile World Congress, is HTC's next horizontal slider smartphone which features a full QWERTY keyboard which makes it a perfect Windows Phone for everyone who needs to type texts on the go. Unlike the original HTC Touch Pro but like the HTC TyTN II, the semi-sliding touchscreen can also fold-up and size-wise the Touch Pro2 is also closer to the TyTN II than to the original Touch Pro which was a very small smartphone for a messaging device. Like other recent HTC Professional smartphones, the Touch Pro2 also lacks a D-Pad but it's optimized for touchscreen use only, even if it features a couple of keys.

The HTC Touch Pro2 is more a business machine than a consumer or prosumer device. Not only because the slide-out keyboard but also because it's featuring a new technology HTC calls "Straight Talk Technology". Like most HTC smartphones, the Touch Pro2 has the loudspeaker on the backside of the device. However, in addition it also features a microphone on the back and if the device is switched down during a call, it automatically transfers the call to the backside loudspeaker, turns the microphone on and the Touch Pro2 can now be used for a conference call.

Like the HTC Touch Diamond2, the Touch Pro2 is also running Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and features a Qualcomm MSM7200A CPU at 528 MHz. However, unlike the Touch Diamond2, the Touch Pro2 only sports a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera and the photo light, known from the original Touch Pro is also left. The 3.6" TFT-LCD touchscreen features WVGA at 480x800 pixels and at a size of 11.61 x 5.92 x 1.70 cm the device weights 175 g only, including the 1500 mAh LiIon battery.

The HTC Touch Pro2 is expected to be released anytime in June across Europe and Asia but HTC also confirmed a North American release later Q2-2009.

Hi Arne thanks for the pics. Do you have any information when this device will be available from o2 Germany? Also, how deep does the blue skin go? Like for example, are the start menu replacement or are the tabs in the new persons contact screen blue as well?
Thanks for the info, I'm really looking forward to this device!

I haven't gotten any confirmed release date yet but last info was anytime June?
Also I should have made clear in the Photoview (but will do again in the upcoming Videoview) that - AFAIK - O2's HTC Touch Pro will *not* feature a blue theme but the original black one; I think that's good news.
