Today, HTC announced the release of the HTC Touch Pro in the Philippines, a smartphone explicitly catering to business and power users. The phone has also taken the top spot of the phone price chart.
Powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, the HTC Touch Pro supports quad-band GSM with HSDPA (up to 7.2Mbps), WiFi 802.11 b/g, a 2.8-inch touch screen display, full qwerty keyboard that slides out the back, a 3.2 MP camera (+ frontal facing VGA camera for 3G calls), FM radio and GPS. MicroSD slot allows you to expand storage to 16GB.
The phone runs on a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM 7201A with 512MB ROM and 288MB RAM. There’s a TV-out port which allows you to run Powerpoint presentations thru a projector with only the phone in tow. It’s really a business phone so they’ve packed tons of business apps in here – Opera Mobile, MS Outlook Mobile, IE Mobile, MS Office Mobile, Windows Media Player 10, Adobe Reader, ZIP, JetCET Print 5, WorldCard Mobile (to read and store business cards on the fly) and a dedicated YouTube player.
The HTC Touch Pro will be available in local stores by middle of September. And the price tage that made it to the top of our charts — Php50,800 (~USD$1,100) .
