In addition, the Touch Pro includes a new innovative touch-sensitive control for device interaction.
Making The Mobile Internet Useful and Fun With the introduction of Touch Pro, HTC delivers an entirely new mobile Internet experience that utilizes broadband-like speeds with HSPA (up to 2Mbps up-link and up to 7.2Mbps down-link speeds)^ and wireless connectivity. Committed to improving Web browsing, HTC provides a new customized mobile Web browser that enables easy viewing and effortless navigation of Websites in the way they are designed to be viewed on a PC. As part of this browsing experience users can zoom and pan Websites with one-hand and automatically view optimized content that has been specially created to fit the display. Turning the device sideways and the built-in G-sensor will automatically rotate the web page view from a portrait to landscape view.
In addition to Web browsing, the Touch Pro includes an HTC-developed, YouTube application for watching a variety of user generated video content. The Touch Pro utilizes mapping and navigation solutions by installing a GPS mapping software, which enables users to find the fastest routes to their destinations, locate restaurants and services on the way.
Unmatched Style with Complete Productivity Like the Touch Diamond, Touch Pro is crafted with precision to fit comfortably in a user?s hand and brings together elegant touch screen response with the direct precision of HTC?s trademark sliding keyboard design. Introducing a new five-row QWERTY keyboard layout that makes typing-intensive tasks like composing email or working on Microsoft Office documents quick and easy. Built-in TV-out functionality means users can deliver the perfect PowerPoint presentation from the Touch Pro and project pictures and videos to external large screen without a laptop in sight. Entertainment features include a FM radio and multi-media player.
Bursting with Innovation The Touch Pro delivers an unrivalled combination of features and functionality.
