HTC Touch Pro goes on sale in the UK
The HTC Touch Pro has finally gone on sale in the UK. Unfortunately not subsidised by a carrier as of yet, so you will have to fork out a massive £514.99 via the distributor Devicewire.
This is a mighty good looking device from HTC (in my eyes at least), however after my experience with my TyTn I am not entirely sure if Windows Mobile is for me. Yes it is brilliant functionality wise, however it was glitchy as hell. This included my experience with Windows Mobile 6.
I am currently using a Nokia E90, while it is a great phone it is huge so I would be very very interested in trying this new phone out (and WM6.1) if anyone fancies sending me one for review?
