HTC Touch Pro is in the house!

It's Big!

It's Powerful!

It’s the best smartphone in the world!

IT's HTC Touch Pro!


OK, so the story goes like that: couple of weeks ago I published a poll in order to know your opinion about what is the best smartphone in the world.

The poll took place here at the Mobile Spoon and also at MobilitySite where I write every once in a while with a lot of pleasure.

One week later I published the results of he poll, and it was an amazing knock out for HTC with both the Touch Pro and Touch HD receiving over 60% of the votes.

The winner was HTC Touch Pro: (complete results in here)

I somehow finished the post with the following words:

"HTC: if you are reading this post, I think I deserve brand new HD and Pro devices (OK, I settle for just one of them... pretty please?).

After all - I need to know the phone that just won the title "best in the world" - in person, right?

(Say yes! Say yes! I promise to write a fair review about it!)"

At that time I was not aware that someone did actually read it.

So after few days I got a small package, written HTC on it...

Hmm... I thought to myself, suspicious as I always am: is it a bomb sent by Apple as a result of my negative iPhone thoughts?

Could it be that someone from HTC or Microsoft is actually reading my humble blog?

Was it a mistake not to write: "I need 1 million dollar" instead?

I guess Microsoft are not reading my blog, but chances are that they are reading MobilitySite! And they did!


So although my friends worn me not to open the box I did it.

(OK, you caught me there, my wife did...)

And guess what?

HTC Touch Pro.

For my review.

So, I guess now it's my part of the deal.

For a week now I'm using the Pro as a phone, and I already have some interesting insights about this amazingly equipped device.

As usual - not everything is positive, but it's Windows Mobile - the best mobile platform, my favorite one, and as you already know my reviews - I will try to stick with the areas that interest me such as user interface, device usability etc.

I will write my thoughts in a new series of posts titled: Touch Pro Thoughts starting very soon (probably this weekend).

So be sure to check out the Mobile Spoon in a couple of days - the best way to stay tuned with new posts is to subscribe using your favorite RSS Reader.

Would be nice to hear your opinion about a Windows Mobile handset after using Apple's iphone.

I have a Fuze and found I had to tweak it here and there. I haven't done every tweak and a few of them I have undone. It's a good phone.

I will be interested to hear your thoughts on an untweaked phone. If you want to know my favorite tweaks and software, check out my review(s) at http://tinyurl.com/fuzehardware, http://tinyurl.com/fuzesoft1, and http://tinyurl.com/fuzesoft2

Why do you need so many tweaks in one phone?
I think it means something about the phone

Ha, I was right that you've laid your hands on one of the phones & a review is coming up! :P

Yeah it definitely says something! It says that the platform is not locked to the users who paid for their device & the platform on it. They can customize it to suit their needs since 1 size doesn't fit all. But you wouldn't know anything about customization as you seem to be from the fruit camp! :P ;)
