While there were plenty of hot handsets introduced at Mobile World Congress, the HTC Touch Pro2 has to be a “Best of Show” contender. HTC routinely pushes positive improvements into Windows Mobile devices and it shows in the Touch Pro2: a tilting 800×480 touch display, 3.2MP auto-focus camera, Straight Talk™ speakerphone technology, QWERTY keyboard, and HTC’s Touch Flo interface.
Many HTC devices start out in non-U.S. regions and some never make it here. Those that do often appear unofficially and without support for our 3G frequencies. Thanks to the power of Twitter, Brighthand found out that the Touch Pro2 will indeed be offered in a U.S.-friendly version, although there’s no timing on that. Brighthand speculates on a fall 2009 debut here, assuming a second-quarter launch in Europe and/or Asia. The Touch Pro2 will initially come with Windows Mobile 6.1, but is one of the very few handsets that will accept an upgrade to WinMo 6.5.
