Compare Touch Pro Deals

The HTC Touch Pro is a high-spec smartphone with a  2.8-inch VGA touchscreen and HTC’s own TouchFlo user interface. At 51 x 99 x 17 mm and weighing a hefty 165g, the Pro is no shrinking violet of a PDA, with a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard and 3.5G/HSDPA for fast internet connectivity where available. Elsewhere, browsing will be via GPRS/EDGE and there is Wi-fi for hotspot and WLAN working or Bluetooth for short-range wireless data transfer.

There is a 3.2 megapixel camera with flash and a forward-facing VGA camera for video calls. The screen has an accelerometer, so that images move automatically between portrait and landscape simply by turning the device. Running Windows Mobile Professional 6.1 operating system, you can view and edit Microsoft Office documents and the TV out socket enables you to run Powerpoint presentations, for example, from the phone on to a big screen.


The Pro also has integrated GPS - sat-nav has become de rigour in today’s smartphone. It works brilliantly, regularly achieving satellite reception in under a minute. The Pro has little internal memory, but does offer a microSD slot for additional data storage capacity.

Battery consumption is bound to be heavy given the range of activities the Pro is likely to be involved in – particularly instant email delivery – but it should support a busy lifestyle for about 24 hours before needing a re-charge.
