HTC Touch Pro: the Raphael officially named

HTC has swept away rumours 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.

The gorgeous but dully titled HTC Touch Pro

Today HTC swept away rumours 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.

Slightly dull name aside, this bad boy is stuffed with more features than Batman's utility belt. 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 emails with ease.

Other desirable features include a 3.2-megapixel camera and a large VGA touchscreen. The whole thing runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, naturally, and features TouchFLO 3D, the same finger-friendly front end as on the HTC Touch Diamond.

The Touch Pro is expected in the UK during the European summer but there's been no word yet about a local release.
