Today HTC swept away the rumors that its new smartphone was going to be called the HTC Raphael or HTC TyTN III by giving its latest Qwerty keypad mobile the moniker of HTC Touch Pro. A bit boring, we know, but at least it didn't name it after a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
Dull nomenclature aside, this bad boy is stuffed with more features than Ray Mears' travelling pouch. HSDPA (7.2Mbps), Wi-Fi and GPS keep you connected on the road, while a slide-out, five-row keypad lets you tap out long e-mails with ease.
Other desirable features include a 3.2-megapixel camera and a large VGA touch screen. The whole thing runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, natch, and features TouchFLO 3D, the same finger-friendly front end as on the. Pricing has yet to be announced, but HTC says the Touch Pro will be available this summer in the U.S., U.K., and Asian markets.
