There was a time when QWERTY keyboards were important, and when smartphones were designed for business users, and not necessarily the rest of us humans. Back then, Windows Mobile had just defeated Palm in market share, and the next frontier was to defeat BlackBerry and Nokia. Now can you believe this all happened just four years ago? Today we take some time to revisit one of the best Windows Mobile smartphones we ever reviewed, the HTC Touch Pro2.

Originally called the HTC Rhodium, this device was the most feature-packed monster you could buy. It’s a small device by today’s standards, but back then we all found it to be a “commanding device” as Brandon called it in his unboxing. This device wasn’t only powerful, but it had one of the best slide-out QWERTY keyboards of its time, a tilting display, and its version of HTC Sense would bring you experiences you couldn’t buy on competing devices.

Make sure you watch this video with as much nostalgia as we had building it, and leave us a comment if you owned one, or wanted to. Tell us what you loved the most about the phone as well.
