SANS - Survey on application security programs

Typecast

Evidently, the HTC 7 Pro aimed primarily at business users, and the company’s website pushes its built-in Stocks app, which allows you to track up to 30 investments in your portfolio, keep up with the latest finance news and convert currency. This is however available with all of HTC’s WP7 handsets, as is Microsoft Office and the HTC-specific apps in the HTC Hub, including sound and photo enhancers and various games.

Rare breed: Qwerty keyboard on a WinPho 7 handset

Verdict

So far, there’s really very little difference between WP7 handsets – they’ve all got broadly similar functionality and features – but the HTC 7 Pro stands out for its Qwerty keyboard, which is a winner. If that’s what floats your boat, this is the handset for you, but if you can do without it, you won’t find much else here to recommend it over HTC’s other Windows handsets. ®

Many thanks to Clove Technology for the loan of the review unit.
