HTC 7 Pro handset photographed, reveals Touch Pro2 style QWERTY keyboard
The HTC 7 Pro is a Windows Phone 7 handset with a side-sliding landscape QWERTY keyboard. The unit is expected to launch in Europe early next month with a CDMA version heading to the States later in the year. Actually, the latest speculation has the phone coming to Sprint as soon as next month as we reported.

The usual suspects are on board here, including a 1GHz processor under the hood and a 3.6 inch screen with 480 x 800 resolution. The phone sports a 5MP camera with AF and flash that can capture video at 720p. 8GB of native storage is on the phone and keep in mind that the platform does not allow you to expand memory with a microSD card.

Take a look at the keyboard and see if it brings to mind the QWERTY on the HTC Touch Pro2. When the latter came to market in 2009, the keyboard was considered one of the best available at the time and now, more than a year later, this looks to still be true.

I love my TP2... On Verizon... Even though it is outdated by todays standards it is still a great phone. Yes it is not snappy. Yes the load time is longer than a few seconds. Yes occasionally it freezes. But it is still a great and fully capable phone.

Imagine if this phone had better hardware to work with... A stronger processor, and you would be amazed at the differences. That is essentially what WP7 is, a revised OS equipped with very capable hardware. It brings the best out of operating systems made by anyone.

And quite frankly I don't like iOS - too restrictive. Android is great, BlackBerry is very reliable. I think WP7 is everything I loved in my WinMo 6.5, only better. I am going to go with WP7, as a business-centric man I loved my BlackBerry, but my WinMo 6..5 phone has some features that you wont even believe!

This is old news. Next time show a video of it in action. I have a Touch pro 2 with Sprint and its a great phone with flaws like SemperFiV12 explained. I will get the Htc 7 Pro for Sprint when it comes out, but I only see very little difference in the design of the phone. The Windows Phone 7 OS on the other hand is very nice but just like Apple IOS, it has restriction. One main feature I would love for the phones to have is to be able to read infomation of the memory card from other application when you plug it up to the USB port in the PC. I hate the Zune sink feature but the Zune player is itself is nice.
