Hardware Tour of the HTC Touch Pro


In this video, I cover the hardware of the phone.

As I mention in the video, although the Touch Pro is almost as thick as the TyTN II/Kaiser (it’s just 1-2mm thinner), it doesn’t feel thick in hand or in the pocket because of its smaller width and height. HTC has also added the rubbery-like coating to the back of the Touch Pro, giving it a more secure feel in-hand.

The keyboard has an extra row at the top for numbers, which is a welcomed addition for the sake of not having to press the function key to get to a number. The feel of the keyboard is fantastic, and it could be as good as or better than the keyboard of the Motorola Q9h. Unfortunately, I sensed a bit of play in the keyboard that for such a high end phone shouldn’t be present.

The microSD card slot is behind the battery cover, but it’s hot swappable so that you don’t have to turn off the device to change the card.

More to come.
