HTC Touch Pro 2 Caught on Tape (updated)

Well to be fair to the HTC Touch Pro 2, we stumbled upon yet another video that (opens in new tab) was able to capture during a recent visit to HTC.  Just like the Touch Diamond 2's video, there is still no narration but plenty of hip-hop techno music. 

The reset button appears to have been moved beneath the battery cover on the Touch Pro 2 and the video gives a good view of the backside of the screen as it's in the tilted position.  The three sliding hinges look solid.  The video also compares the Touch Pro 2 and Diamond 2 side by side.

Update: And yet another video of the Touch Pro 2 in the wild from our friends at Mobilna Technologia after the break.

  • OK. Phil officially wants. Please send donations to ...
  • Diamond 2 is not much thinner. Intrigued now... So is it a 3.6" or 3.4" screen?
  • Is it just me or does this thing look way thinner than the Touch Pro? Maybe it's just the curvier styling and silver color, I don't know... But I remember when the Touch Pro photos leaked out and I thought it was a fat chunk of a device. This thing, however, looks quite normal sized. I swore I'd never buy another horizontal slider again, but this one might give me pause to reconsider..
  • I'm with you on this. It is supposed to be a bit thinner according to the specs (17.25mm vs 18.05mm). I'm sure the curved edges make it seem like even more. I wish the Diamond2 was basically the same as the TP2 without the keyboard. Screen size and styling. I've mastered TouchPal on my diamond so a hardware keyboard is no longer necessary for me (especially with a bigger screen). Plus I'm not a fan of horizontal sliders.
  • Definitely my TyTN II replacement. Now, if they only come out with a NAM version...
  • no 3.5 mm headphone jack?
  • nope, makes no sense when the HD has one
  • Maybe it's too expensive?
  • I hope VZW does not shortchange this one like the Touch Pro
  • I find it amusing how the guy uses the TP2 in the new video. Index finger to type? Stylus with the screen flipped up? My fingers felt cramped watching it.
