HTC Touch Pro2HTC already updated one handset today with the Diamond2. But it was double duty with the Touch Pro also getting a bit of a makeover.


Just like the Touch Diamond2, the Pro2 makes use of HTC’s TouchFLO 3D, people-centric communication and Push Internet technology.

But it also features a 3.6-inch widescreen VGA display for an expanded viewing area and large finger-friendly QWERTY keyboard.

“With improved battery life, expandable memory, a touch-sensitive zoom bar as well as gravity, proximity and ambient light sensors, the Touch Pro2 is optimised for touch as well as heavy email use,” HTC said.

The company also claimed the new HTC Touch Pro2 uses voice in a new way to create “one of the most sophisticated communication experiences found on a mobile phone”.

“HTC’s new Straight Talk technology delivers an integrated email, voice and speakerphone experience,” HTC spokesbods claimed.

“Users can transition seamlessly from email to single or multi-party conference calls and turn any location into a conference room.”

According to the blurb, Straight Talk includes an innovative mechanical and acoustic design that features a sophisticated speakerphone experience similar to those found in corporate boardrooms.

That’s thanks to a high-fidelity voice and sound experience enhanced by asymmetric speakers and advanced noise suppression with full duplex acoustics.

The Touch Pro2 will be available across major global markets beginning in early summer.
