HTC unveiled the HTC Touch Pro2 at the MWC 2009 today.
The HTC Touch Pro2 is a major evolution of the currently available HTC Touch Pro with its slide-out keyboard. The Touch Pro2 is rounder and features an updated TouchFLO 3D interface still based on Windows Mobile 6.1.
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. The new HTC Straight Talk technology on the Pro2 delivers an integrated email, voice and speakerphone experience. You can transition seamlessly from email to single or multi-party conference calls and turn any location into a conference room.
In addition to the new simplified calling experience, Straight Talk includes a mechanical and acoustic design that features a sophisticated speakerphone experience similar to those found in corporate boardrooms.
Straight Talk delivers a high-fidelity voice and sound experience enhanced by asymmetric speakers and advanced noise suppression with full duplex acoustics.
When the Touch Pro2 is flipped over it automatically turns into a conference room speakerphone system.
Other features of the HTC Touch Pro2 include high-resolution 3.6-inch widescreen VGA touchscreen, Slide-out 5-row QWERTY keyboard, GPS, Wifi, 3.2MP camera, media player, and Bluetooth.
Measurements of the Touch Pro2 are 116 X 59.2 X 17.25 mm (4.57 X 2.33 X 0.68 inches) and the weight is 175 grams (6.17 ounces) with battery.
The Touch Pro2 will be available across major global markets beginning in early summer.
