A look at the Touch Pro 2's proximity sensor

One of the cooler features of the HTC Touch Pro 2 is one that you could well not even notice: The proximity sensor. For the unfamiliar, a proximity sensor on a phone shuts off the screen when it recognizes the phone's against your face when you're on a call. Obviously, that'll save battery life. Above, Brandon from Pocketnow takes a brief look at the proximity sensor on the European version of the Touch Pro 2.

Just one more reason why we can't wait for this phone to be released in the United States.
