Sometimes it takes a little while for everyone to get with the times but better late than never, we say. The still unreleased HTC Touch Pro2 for Telus will be featuring, amongst a host of other awesome specs, a 3.5mm headphone jack (ditching the USB one that came with an adapter) as revealed by an early video review. Hopefully this will be a new and permanent trend for all future HTC devices. The touchscreen/QWERTY hybrid will also be home to Windows Mobile 6.1 with HTC’s famous TouchFlo 3D UI, a 3.2 megapixel shooter, Wi-Fi and a pivoting screen much like the AT&T Tilt of yesteryear. This is definitely a worthy successor to the original Touch Pro/Fuze, so if you’re in the market for a new device on TELUS you might not want to pass this one up. Hit the jump for the video reviews.
Sure TouchFLO 3D 2.5 is looking pretty amazing, but the future of HTC’s WinMo UI may be headed elsewhere. Despite the muddled availability of the new HTC Sense UI on Android devices, it appears as if its presence on Windows Mobile devices at some point in the future is a bit more cut and dry:
The Hero UI has been created specifically for HTC’s Android-based phones but also represents that three core pillars of HTC Sense. HTC’s future Windows Mobile phones will also be based on HTC Sense, but will enhance Windows Mobile in a way that is as appropriate and valuable to people.
There you have it — the Sense UI in some shape or form will appear on Windows Mobile devices in the future. Maybe that means HTC will retain the TouchFLO name and apply Sense elements to it, or perhaps we’ll see a completely new UI based on Sense. Either way, Windows Mobile 6.5 and 7 users definitely have some sexiness to look forward to.
