Touch Pro Diamond HTC mobileHTC has recently announced a touch screen plus a slide out QWERTY keypad, with navigating tricky Windows Mobile menus and tapping out e-mails. It is just like the Diamond.

Touch pro and diamonds are just the latest in Taiwan. Both are identical to their respective specs. Both phones can access speedy HSDPA data networks, do Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and they each pack in Opera HTML Web browsers (if phone is turned sideways it switches pages to landscape view. Also GPS and 3.2MP digital cameras. For video conferencing the Touch Pro adds a front-facing VGA camera.) The Touch Pro has 512MB of internal memory, compared to 4GB of diamond. Both handsets come with slots for micro SD memory expansion.
Both the phones have a screen of 2.8 inch, VGA touch-enabled display with HTC’s snazzy TouchFlo UI, an animated 3D interface allowing you to access your contact, event, music, pictures, phone widget, and calling features with swipes of your finger tips.
Both Diamond and Touch Pro run the professional edition of Windows Mobile 6.1 a powerful and highly configurable mobile OS.
The Touch Pro’s slide-out, five-row QWERTY keypad is handy while tapping out messages or editing mobile Office documents.
The Touch Pro’s slide out QWERTY keypad is 4 by 2 by 0.7 inch thick. It is bulky and it weighs 5.8 ounces.
Though the Touch Pro is worthy competitor to Sony Ericsson’s upcoming Xperia X1, with Window Mobile 6.1, a handset with slide out keypad, with its innovative, panel-based touch interface.
Expected price for Touch Pro is about $900.
HTC promises that North American version of the Touch Pro will come by year end. And Europe, Asia and the Middle East will get the phone by late summer.
