HTC Touch Pro inches closer to release

1

And now for a little non-Treo Pro news ...

Chris over at Mobile Tech Addicts in the U.K. notes that the HTC Touch Pro has appeared on Vodaphone's business Web site, with a launch date in August, which is most assuredly winding down.

Add to that the appearance last week of some cryptic "HTC Fuze" sites, possibly alluding to the stateside AT&T launch, and it looks like we all might finally get to stop writing about the Touch Pro, and finally get down to using the bloody thing.

The New York Times speaks with Palm execs

2

Coinciding with the official announcement of the Treo Pro, The New York Times this morning published a piece on Palm CEO Ed Colligan and Executive Chairman John Rubinstein, who left Apple and was brought in to breathe life back into the once-floundering company.

Along with such (great) lines as “Everyone is trying to make an iPhone killer. We are trying to make a killer Palm product,” we get a quick look at Palm's strategy for the Treo Pro.

Writes Laura M. Holson:

Palm has begun to market its products differently at the behest of Mr. Colligan, who has a long history with Palm and its various antecedents and spinoffs. It is scrapping the use of numbers in product names, Mr. Keast said.

As has been apparent with the Centro, and which Holson acknowledges, this shift has been in place for some time now. While Palm has said from the get-go - OK, since this morning - the Treo Pro is a power user's device, and not nearly as consumer-oriented as the Centro. We haven't seen nearly the marketing push, at least not with the 800w, as Sprint put behind the Centro. And never mind that there's currently no U.S. carrier on board for the Treo Pro, and that it initially will be available unlocked for $549.

So it will be interesting to see the response - from Palm, the U.S. carriers and finally the customers - to what easily is the sexiest Treo in the lineup.

But Rubinstein admits there's still a long road ahead.

“One product isn’t going to make us successful,” he said. “It is a brick in the foundation. And each one has to be better than the last.”

BGR and the Rise of the Silver Q9h

BGR and the Rise of the Silver Q9h

Sure enough, as soon as we get around to buying a Motorola Q9h of our very own, the Boy Genius goes and springs this on us. Go figure.

Apparently there's now a silver-and-chrome version of the venerable slab floating around out there, with Windows Mobile 6.1 out of the box. (The rest of us mere peasants can get the lowdown on the manual upgrade here.) No word on any other goodies under the hood.

BGR doesn't (yet) have the deets on pricing or a release date, but we're willing to bet an AT&T employee is gonna squeal anytime now. Stay tuned.

AT&T Tilt 6.1 Upgrade Coming August 26th

4

The wait for Windows Mobile 6.1 for the AT&T Tilt continues. We already know that it's coming soon, since we already reported that the download page is up, but it points to an already existing, Windows Mobile 6 ROM. Annoying

Good news is the wait is nearly over -- an anonymous tipster tells us that we can expect the 6.1 ROM for the Tilt to officially drop one week from today, on August 26th. In other words, quit spamming that "refresh" button and sit tight.

Sprint gearing up to launch the HTC Touch Diamond: $299.99

7

Not that this is a huge surprise exactly what with all the leaked info from the past, but it sure looks like Sprint is getting ready to launch this in September for $299.99 (after MIR; MSRP is $549.99).

Nothing too shocking here, though the mention of Sprint's much derided MMS alternative (PictureMail) seems to be supported, though we wonder if this is the big update we've all be awaiting? Probably not.

Tracy and Matt unbox the Touch Pro

Tracy and Matt unbox the Touch Pro

We're still awaiting HTC's latest and greatest here in the states, but over in the U.K., Tracy and Matt have found themselves in possession of a Touch Pro, and they're giving us plenty of unboxing goodness of the keyboarded cousin of the Touch Diamond.

Their initial thoughts:

The Touch Pro is an extremely nice device, the screen seems to be more sensitive than the Touch Diamond and it looks like HTC have spent the extra time with the Pro refining a few things. The TouchFlo3D interface seems more fluid and that QWERTY keyboard it great.

They're also offering up some pics of the Touch Pro alongside the Diamond, and all we can say is Touch Pro=Whoa - hope you've been working out.

Update: Chris from Mobile Tech Addicts also gives the Touch Pro a thorough run-through and deems it a solid performer, having learned from the less than stellar Diamond launch.

Palm to Announce Treo Pro Today? (Update x2: Just Another Leak)

28

Register Hardware is reporting that they've received an email from “one of [Palm's] media agencies” that indicates that Palm may announce the Treo Pro today. While we of course have no idea when Palm intends on announcing or releasing the device, it wouldn't be crazy to surmise that all the recent Treo Pro leaks may have helped accelerate things a bit.

El Reg adds that the email confirms some of what we already know: the device “features a one-touch Wi-Fi button, GPS, Windows Mobile 6.1 and a high-resolution flush color touchscreen.”

More as it comes! Thanks to Gareth for the tip!

Updated: SlashGear is reporting that Palm has released a couple of press photos, one of which appears above. After the cut, a quick video of the Treo Pro SlashGear grabbed and posted up on YouTube.

Update 2: Electronista reports that the announcement has been withdrawn from the PR site. Looks like what we have here is a failure to communicate another leak.

Tip of the Week: Change your Wait Cursor...easily!

0

In the immortal words of Lord Ballmer: "Developers! Developers! Developers!" (

Marshall who's been a frequent contributer over at XDA has been working on replacing the default "pie" cursor on Windows Mobile for quite some time now. Up until recently, you had to copy over some system files which made changing your cursor a little bit risky and not something the new user would undertake.

Now with his Marshall WaitCursor2 it could not be easier. Simply install his .cab file to your main memory and launch MWCConfig.

From there you can select from a nice assortment of beautifully rendered wait cursors, including previewing them in action. Then just hit "save" and usually within in a few moments (or after a soft reset) you'll have something nice to gander at while Opera or Skyfire load ;-)

Best of all, this app is free but we here at WMExperts strongly recommend a donation to this fellow as now only does this app works but it is quite aesthetically pleasing (I mean who doesn't want a jumping penguin on their phone?)

Read more and download here!

Comments from the Peanut Gallery about Windows Mobile even needing a wait cursor will be tolerated, but we'll note that at least when WM experiences inexplicable delays and hang-ups it at least has the courtesy to let you know it's working on something.
