HTC to launch Touch Pro for biz users this year

fami white2

So the HTC Diamond is a phone that people are into, and HTC is upping the handset with a new version called the Pro. It has similar styling to the Diamond, with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a full-sized touchscreen, a 3.2-Megapixel camera with video calling, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, WinMo 6.1, TouchFlo, and fast HSDPA 3G connectivity.

We’ll see it here at some point this year, though no exact date is given. It’s a hot looking phone, and HTC has been on a roll lately. Known formerly for clunky yet cheap smartphones, it’s good to see the active phone maker pushing out phones that can go toe-to-toe with the Samsung Glydes and iPhones of the world.
