New version of the TouchFlo 3D:

TouchFlo 3D will get a decent upgrade as well!

According to HTC, the new version of the TouchPro will include better integration with Windows Mobile, deeper and more consistent, and some new features like web pages preview in the main shell, bigger touch focus areas (for better finger usage), and some new improved tabs like the contacts tab, etc.

Continue like this, HTC, and your stuff will be more advanced than WinMo 6.5!

Did we say... yummy? (oh yeah, we said that already...)

You say so-long to the D-Pad as if it's a good thing. The stunning lack of D-Pad is the single reason I will never buy this device.

I usually prefer to have a d-pad of course but the d-pad of the diamond and the pro is so bad that in this specific case I'm happy it's gone...

I agree with you that the perfect navigation can be done with a physical d-pad
