HTC Touch Pro 2 or Palm Pre?
 

 
My contract is about to end on June 17th with Sprint. I'm looking into getting one of these phones. I was leaning towards the Touch Pro 2. What do you think?

I personally am a fan of the Touch Pro so I would grab that if I were in your shoes.

Pre.

I'm getting tired of Windows Mobile. If Palm can live up to the hype, the Pre will be way better.

I was thinking about waiting a little bit after both phones release. I usually don't buy phones as soon as they release, but my contract is ending sometime around both release dates. I definately need a new phone, I still got the Treo 755p :(.

Yea, I feel it. I wanted to get the Touch Pro at first, but money wasn't looking right. Now the TP 2 is coming out, I'm looking forward to it.

I'm the opposite. I'm getting tired of Palm OS. But do correct me if I'm wrong, The Pre will have a newer OS on it this time. The phone is nice in general, but I want to switch up for the next two years. I want a bigger keyboard, rather than the small keyboard like Palm's have.

And I do agree, if Palm can live up the hype, it will be a nice phone. I don't think it will be an iPhone k!ller though. We'll see...

The new OS (WebOS) is WAY different than Palm OS.

Palm's been using essentially the same s**t for about a decade or so. Not much had changed at all. This is why they're completely changing it up for the Pre. There really is no similarities between the two.

And honestly, I like Palms keyboards (with the exception of the Centro) better than HTC's wider keyboards. I could type faster on my Treo's than I can on my Touch Pro, plus its easier to text with one hand, which is the key to texting and driving safely.

Ok. Yea, see I didn't read too much up on the Palm Pre or the TP2. I just know they were two nice a.ss phones! :lachen001:

And I do agree with you about the keyboard. I do drive and text the same time with the Treo always!

Also, I hear that the Pre will be using the 4g network. Is the TP2 using it too?

Does not look like it.

High Tech Computer (HTC), the largest maker of handsets that run Microsoft Windows Mobile software, unveiled updates to two of its most popular smartphones ever on Monday, the HTC Touch Diamond2 and HTC Touch Pro2 handsets.

The sleek new handsets are both 3G touchscreen devices, but while the Touch Diamond2 is a consumer smartphone designed to compete with Apple's iPhone 3G, the Touch Pro2 is geared towards business people and could be a hit with its speaker phone function.

between those 2 i'd say tp2 the pre is not a proven device as of yet the OS is brand new so you KNOW it will have glitches and bugs galore

im waitin on more specs from the storm 2 ( if it has a physical keyboard or not mainly) and the g1 v2 ( if its going to be a memory upgrade to ram and rom and other bug fixes and stuff)

gettin tired of my env though and my contract is up on the 18th im just patiently waiting though
Yea, that's true. I know it will have problems the day it releases.

I still won't make a decision until both drop. I'll be patiently waiting as well. I just want to see everybody's opinions on each phone.

Touch pro 2. Lol this phone is so good HTC had to make a part 2 :P just kiding but you can't go wrong with the endless of customizations you can go with windows mobile phones. Just head over to the "Post your Touch Pro Today screens" and look at some of the stuff you can do on your phone. btw you also can pay emulators on it :D

Im on a sero plan so I cant get the pre since it will require the "simply all data plans" that arent on the sero plan even though I have unlimited data, so because of that it will be the htc touch pro 2 in the fall for me.

Really??? I'm also on the sero plan! As I mentioned, my contract ends June 17th. So is this true that the Pre requires the "Simply all data plan"? If so, cancel that plan on getting the Pre because I want to keep my plan! lol
