HTC Touch Pro vs HTC TyTN II

Since our review of the HTC Touch Pro just a few days ago many of you have been in touch to ask how it compares to the HTC TyTN II and if it’s worth upgrading from the TyTN II to the Touch Pro.

I previously had an HTC TyTN II and switched over to the HTC Touch Diamond a few months ago. While I do like the Diamond I really missed the QWERTY keyboard as I send an awful lot of email. When the Pro came in the scene it seemed like the answer to my prayers, a modern Diamond-like device with a hardware keyboard.

I’ve spent the last week switching between the Diamond and the Touch Pro. I like the size and weight of the Diamond but for me the Pro makes a lot more sense. The Pro works a lot quicker and smoother than the Diamond and with it’s higher-res screen and more modern lighter design beats the TyTN II in my opinion.

However, whether it’s worth spending £500+ of your hard earned upgrading from the TyTN II to the Touch Pro is debatable. What does the Pro have over the TyTN II? Well you get the VGA screen and TouchFlo 3D interface. It’s a slightly smaller package and is about 25-30 grams lighter. Both have GPS, Windows Mobile 6.1 and QWERTY keyboards.

It’s a tough call but personally I’ll be putting my Diamond and TyTN II on eBay to pay for the Touch Pro!

Have a look at some of the comparison shots below and see for yourself.
