HTC Touch Pro: The TyTN III/ Raphael gets its proper name

The HTC Touch Pro AKA HTC TyTN III AKA HTC Raphael has finally been announced and it's set to come out this summer, so start saving your pennies

Today HTC swept away the rumours that its new smart phone 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 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 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, natch, and features TouchFLO 3D, the same finger-friendly front end as on the HTC Touch Diamond.

HTC says the Touch Pro will be available this summer. Pricing has yet to be announced, but we'd be amazed if it wasn't free on most monthly contracts and cost over £300 SIM-free. Expect a full review soon. -Andrew Lim
