HTC Touch Pro

The HTC Touch Pro may be the ultimate Blackberry killer. I know the term "killer" is used very often but let’s look at this situation carefully… People who type a lot benefit from a keyboard. Sure, an on-screen keyboard works but it is not ideal. I beleive one of the reasons the Blackberry does well is because it has a great keyboard and the OS is very stable.

Getting back to HTC, the Touch Pro gives you HSPA, WiFi, 640×480 resolution, Windows Mobile 6.1, a 3.2 megapixel camera and more. In fact, if the device is half as good as the specs lead me to believe, it will become a new benchmark for mobile products.

The one downside is Windows Mobile which quite honestly needs work. I haven’t used 6.1 but prior version of Windows Mobile products are known to freeze and many people I speak with have stopped using Microsoft mobile devices because of this problem coupled with lousy battery life.

Personally, I carry 1-2 extra batteries with wherever I go so I don’t run out of juice at a critical time.

The device will be available later this year and no word on Verizon/Sprint support at the moment. This is yet one more reason to switch to GSM. One wonders if the upcoming iPhone will also feature 640×480 resolution. If not it will be at a major disadvantage.

I have to say that this is the year where mobile devices have truly taken the leap to allow you to truly surf the web on the go. I find this a very exciting time to be in the communications and technology market.

    Sprint overcharged my small (US) company for over $50,000.00. We caught
    them doing it and now they refuse to refund the over-payments. You can
    read the full story at http://www.sprint-really-sucks.com
    I also wrote an open letter to Dan Hesse the Chairman and CEO of Sprint
    Nextel. It is a good read so please consider reading the letter.
