Good factual review and I completely agree with the conclusions. I have an HTC Touch Pro2 and am generally happy with it. I don't understand why the TP2 is still one of the only phones with a slide out keyboard having a seperate row of numbers. Why don't the other manufacturers do this? Also, a general comment, why would anyone release a high end WinMo smart phone now which will not be upgradeable to WP7?
And why is the TouchPro2 so scarce on the networks at the moment? T-mobile won't even let me have one as an upgrade, leaving me the HD2, mini or Compact V as Windows choices. At this rate I'm going to have to run all my WM6 apps on an emulator on a PC, then remote desktop into them from an iPhone or Android :-/
>> Why would anyone release a high end WinMo smartphone now which will not be upgradeable to WP7?Now??? This phone was announced in june 2009! It's been available since july last year. I've had mine since september. Even it's successor - the B7620 - has been available for several months now!
