HTC Touch Pro2 (Verizon Wireless)

The Good The HTC Touch Pro2 for Verizon offers world roaming capabilities as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and EV-DO Rev. A support. The smartphone features an extra-large touch screen and one of the best QWERTY keyboards we've seen to date. Verizon will also provide an Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrade later this year.

The Bad The smartphone is bulky. Callers complained of tinny call quality, and the camera took poor pictures.

The Bottom Line For Verizon's business customers who need more than just a messaging smartphone, the HTC Touch Pro2 delivers with more robust productivity tools and good performance.

HTC Touch Pro2 (Verizon Wireless)

The HTC Touch Pro2 is making the rounds to the various carriers; first showing up at T-Mobile, then to Sprint, and now Verizon Wireless. Verizon's version of the Windows Mobile smartphone isn't all that different from the other models, delivering a powerful business device capable of handling all your e-mail, productivity, and communication needs. The carrier also presents an enticing offer by selling the Touch Pro2 for $150 less than its competitors ($199.99 with a two-year contract), but just remember that you will need to sign up for a qualifying voice and data plan. While Verizon doesn't include as many extra services as the Sprint model, the HTC Touch Pro2 is definitely a welcome addition to the carrier's smartphone lineup, as it provides a more full-featured and robust device for Verizon's corporate customers whose needs aren't met by the RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 or HTC Ozone.

Design
The Verizon HTC Touch Pro2 has a similar design to the other versions of the smartphone but most closely resembles the Sprint model. They share features like a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom as well as tapered edges that give the rather bulky phone a sleeker look. To differentiate itself somewhat, Verizon worked with HTC to add a couple of distinctive touches to the smartphone, such different shortcuts on the QWERTY keyboard, a Sleep button on top of the device (the End key doubles as the power on/off button instead), and a lovely world map pattern on the back speaker.
