SANS - Survey on application security programs

The Pro2 is well served with quad-band GSM, WiFi and Bluetooth with A2DP stereo streaming. Music fans might want to take advantage of this, since the bundled headphones sound unacceptably tinny and compressed, and there's no 3.5mm jack plug for easy upgrade. Mobile Office is on board as is JETSET Presenter 5 and Adobe Reader, so you can create and view Word, Excel, OneNote and PowerPoint docs, as well as view PDFs.

HTC Touch Pro2

Business as usual: Mobile Office is provided as standard

Battery life was so-so, though not bad for a media-hungry smart phone. The quoted 510 minutes of talk time (750 hours standby) translating as around two days of use, admittedly with WiFi switched on for much of that time, but with the screen brightness and backlight duration limited.

Verdict

The HTC Touch Pro2 is a top-notch business handset clearly aimed at high flyers, and not just because of the credit crunch defying price tag. It's a Qwerty keyboard packing smart phone, that you'll be happy to compose more than just texts and the briefest of emails on. The conference call facility works well and will certainly appeal to those who like to take their office with them when they travel. The new menu addition to the TouchFLO 3D interface also helps greatly with usability and the screen is a joy both to view and to use. It's only a pity it's so heavy. ®
