HTC 7 Pro vs. HTC TyTN II (Video)

Advertisement

The HTC 7 Pro is the latest in keyboard sliders with tilting screens. The HTC TyTN II (Kaiser) was the first keyboard slider with a tilting screen. How do they compare? Check out the video below to find out.



Obviously, the HTC 7 Pro is not remotely designed to work well with a landscape-style keyboard. Many parts of the Windows Phone 7 operating system don’t even rotate to landscape mode. The old HTC TyTN II from 4 years ago running Windows Mobile 6.1 on the other hand works VERY well with a large horizontal slider keyboard. In fact, the old version of Windows Mobile had so many great hardware keys used for navigation, that you could do practically everything without having to take your hands off the keyboard.

Which do you think is better for usability?

Having to turn your head to the side and take one hand off the keyboard to touch the screen periodically… or being able to keep you hands and fingers in one place while controlling every part of the device using hardware buttons that you can feel with your fingers?
