sleek, polished-looking phone
Plenty of smartphones claim to be the perfect for business users. But few can match the business-friendly features found on the HTC Touch Pro2. This Windows Mobile-based phone, which is available in an unlocked version and a subsidized model sold by T-Mobile, packs in plenty of software, some unique business-centric calling features, and a stellar display. You won't find a lot of fun extras on the HTC Touch Pro2, but if you're looking for a business-only device, you likely won't miss them.
high-quality duplex speakerphone
When the HTC Touch Pro2 hit the scene, it instantly became the best business smartphone on T-Mobile's lineup, and one of the best business smartphones you can buy. For the hefty starting price, it better be (for our analysis of the real cost of owning a smartphone, ). But the HTC Touch Pro2 on T-Mobile proves its worth with solid hardware, including our favorite QWERTY keyboard and advanced features all around.
The underside of the Touch Pro2 is constructed from stiff plastic with a metal look, and a prominent external speaker adding a pleasing texture.
Those who can afford the Touch Pro2 will be buying a feature-rich smartphone with a unique conference calling feature and a decent suite of business apps.

We think the HTC Touch Pro2 may be one of the finest Windows Mobile 6.1 phones available.
We loved the original HTC Touch Pro. Or wanted to, anyway. Though HTC wowed us with distinct styling, a snappy keyboard, and a downright luscious screen, we could never quite get past how clunky the slow the TouchFlo 3D interface felt pasted over Windows Mobile 6.1. At the end of the day, we just couldn’t recommend it. But with a company as prolific as HTC, you seldom have to wait long for a better version.
very good business phone
The HP iPAQ 910c Business Messenger is, as its name implies, a very good business phone. Like the BlackBerry Curve, it proves that business phones can be attractive and we do like the looks and compact size. It's a dream phone for those who love the T-Mobile Dash, Moto Q9 and BlackJack II but want Windows Mobile Pro rather than standard edition. The QWERTY-bar design is ever-popular in the US and we do love it for easier one-handed operation and expedience.
for the most part voices sounded clean.
The Samsung Omnia 2 is an impressive phone on paper. It packs some great features, so in theory it should be a top notch business phone with a lot of multimedia power thrown in. DiVX playback, for instance, is still unheard of on most phones, and movies looked great on the Omnia 2's AMOLED screen. But Samsung has gone so wrong with the interface that it's difficult and frustrating to use, and impossible to enjoy.
Excellent touchscreen • Sleek design • Great web browser • Access to Android app store.
Parts of the phone are as the name suggests, magic. The design, the touchscreen and the internet experience are all first class. But the absence of outstanding multimedia seriously jeopardises the success of this latest Android.
We were able to pair the Treo Pro with the Logitech Mobile Traveller Bluetooth headset and the Motorola S9 Bluetooth Active Headphones with no problem.
The Palm Treo Pro offers significant improvements in the design and features department, but the smartphone doesn't offer anything revolutionary and costs more than its competitors, which will make it a hard sell.
The speakerphone was adequate, and the speaker is well placed near the side of the device so you can talk with the phone in a supine position on a table.
With the Palm Treo Pro, Palm has created a competent piece of Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional hardware, but we're less enthusiastic about WinMo 6.1 every day. The Palm Treo Pro on Sprint seems an anathema to the ease of use and simplicity that Palm has always championed. Where Sprint got involved, adding trial programs and bloat by the handful, things are confused and redundant.
Colours are impressive too, as when the screen is viewed indoors they look very bright and vivid.
The Omnia Pro is certainly not found wanting in the features department, but the truth is that there are now plenty of feature rich handsets on the market vying for your attention. To stand out from the crowd a smartphone also needs to major on usability and style, and this is where the Omnia Pro comes unstuck. Itâ?? s far too chunky and the combination of Windows Phone and Samsungâ?? s Touchwiz makes the interface unwieldy to use. Plus, its cause isnâ??
The Samsung OmniaPro B7610 keyboard is fantastic too but I think HTC have just got the edge on this one.
So is the Samsung OmniaPro B7610 a decent device? Hell yeah. I found very few things I didn't like about it. Its a good all rounder with the added bonus of the slide out keyboard. Is it as good as the HTC Touch Pro2? I would say they are pretty much equal. The keyboard on the HTC TP2 is very slightly better but apart from that its a real close call. The camera on the Samsung is better than on the HTC so that may be a deciding factor.
The Samsung B7610 OmniaPRO overall is an excellent smartphone.
The Samsung B7610 OmniaPRO overall is an excellent smartphone. Apart of being a multimedia device, it is also a great business phone. As you can see Samsung B7610 OmniaPRO has everything packed in one single smart device. However, there is one thing that we canâ??t accept. It is the size of the device. It is too big for some people, especially for the smaller women hands. So if you are person who like to fit your phone in your pocket, the Samsung B7610 OmniaPRO probably wonâ??t be your choice.
The music player is awesome and I like the coverflow like interface in landscape mode.
If I haven't used the Motorola Milestone, I probably would be satisfied with the Samsung Omnia Pro B7610 but as it is, I've tried a lot of smartphones before this so it's mildly disappointing. No, it's not just Android vs. WinMo, I've had a better user experience on the Diamond2 and Pro2, maybe TouchWiz 2.0 over WinMo 6.5 without the option of turning it off just turned me off or maybe I'm getting tired of WinMo.
call quality was fairly good.
The bottom line: The HTC Pure offers AT&T customers an affordable touch-screen smartphone that showcases a more intuitive Windows Mobile operating system and strikes a nice balance between work and play. That said, those looking for a handset that excels in multimedia and Web browsing should stick with the iPhone.
Call clarity is of the highest quality and the speakerphone is audible even in the loudest settings.
For people who need the convenience of a QWERTY keyboard and Microsoft Office Mobile the HTC Pure is the perfect phone. It is both slim and sleek and is very easy to commute with. At $149.99 with a 2 year contract this phone can be purchased at wireless.amazon.com.
The HTC Pure didn't surprises us with its new features is just a copy of its predecessor HTC diamond with different OS. However its slow response and absence of 3.5 mm headphone jack disappointed us a bit but still it's a nice smart phone as compared to the other Windows 6.5 OS base phones available in the market.
