Camera:

The 2 megapixel camera performed decently. We were not able to put it through a proper test, but at least on-screen it appears to be the same as the GSM Pro. Colors were a bit washed out, but lines were generally crisp. The interface shows its HTC heritage; it is nearly identical to devices like the Touch and Touch Diamond. It has been slightly reworked, but the icons and layout are unmistakable. This means there are many more options than we saw on the 800w, and overall the results were better.

Software:

The Pro runs on a Qualcomm MSM7501A 528MHz processor and has 128MB RAM and 256MB ROM. For a Windows Mobile device it ran fairly smoothly and we only experienced occasional menu lag. It supports microSDHC expansion, but does not come bundled with any card.

It is preloaded with standards such as Office Mobile and Windows Live, but there are also some useful programs that ship with the device. Telenav on the original Pro has been replaced with Sprint Navigation, a carrier-branded version of Telenav. Google Maps isn’t preloaded, but is of course a free download. Quick GPS allows the user to download satellite information for quicker fixes. Picsel PDF Viewer has thankfully been ditched in favor of Adobe Reader LE. Last but certainly not least is Remote Desktop Mobile, which does exactly as the name implies.

Of course there are countless third party programs the user can install to customize their device and make it more useful. Despite its problems, Windows Mobile is a powerful OS, and while not quite open-source the development community really comes through in overcoming Microsoft's shortcomings.

FYI, the Pro has a 528mhz processor, not a 400mhz processor. It's the same processor found in the HTC Touch Pro/Diamond.
