Following yesterday's hardware hands-on videoview of the HTC Touch Pro smartphone, this 10 min. videoview is about the software and GUI features of HTC's upcoming Windows Mobile smartphone. While the HTC Touch Diamond and HTC Touch Pro share the same platform, HTC had to change and enhance some Touch Diamond features because, contrary to the limited support at the Touch Diamond, the HTC Touch Pro is also designed to be used in landscape - with all applications. And while the accelerometer is still not used to automatically switch between the portrait and the landscape mode (but GSEN also works with the Touch Pro), the device switches between both modes as soon as the keyboard is opened or closed:

As a matter of fact, there isn't anything left of the shiny TouchFLO 3D interface if the device is used in landscape and while the used grid view isn't that bad at all, it leaves convenient access to some important TouchFLO 3D functionalities like quick-starting a program from the Programs menu. That's too bad and while the device isn't launched yet, I have the fear that the simple landscape TouchFLO 3D mode will stay with the release version.

Other then that, there aren't major differences between the Touch Pro programs and applications and the Touch Diamond and I'm quite sure that most of the enhancements, the Touch Pro is already carrying, will make its way into another Touch Diamond ROM as well.

Cheers ~ Arne
