without the flash for camera the touch pro 1 is superior in the camera department. i love the touch pro 1 and hate touch pro 2, no flash, no deal.

The 2 main things wrong with the pro is the thickness and small screen and lack of multi touch and beta-like software. The pro2 seams to solve those problems.

However, I think its a cost cutting measure. Notice how HTC is upgrading the camera MP count and making AF standard. But not flash. I think its to lower the price. Give them some time. Once they get the volume running, its a matter of time before HTC rolls out good camera + flash phones. Right now I think they're stuck with legacy design and stock. Remember the Diamond 2 and Pro 2 are based on Diamond 1 and Pro 1. I guess until they revamped the entire design (as in the circuit board design), we're stuck with poor camera and no flash versions because they were never designed to accomodate it.

It seems you're asking for a quad core CPU running at 3 GHz with 4 GB RAM and dedicated video chip 256 MB video ram plus dedicated in-built memory of 320GB for storage. To round it off a nice high resolution 13.1" touchscreen displaying 16 million colours? Wow! That would be a great phone indeed............

Yes in terms of implementation its short in many areas. Mostly taking for granted how touchscreen interface differs from traditional navi / directional pad / keypad navigation. But Nokia's first touch offering and you'll find a reliable, familiar and solid OS with a new interface. So if Nokia can fix the ergonomics, then S60 Touch would put Nokia back in the game. If they stick with the mindset and principles of keypad interface to their touchscreen phones, then despite the robust OS, the S60 touch would fail. I suggest Nokia pinch some big wigs from either Apple or Microsoft to spear head the interface. Even someone from HTC might be valuable.

Let's see ..., what do we have here ...

Nothing, nothing important, just the bigger screen!

HTC, you should understand that we like bigger screens, but anyway you should pay some attention to your subcontractors for better processors, more ROM and ... higher frequency at all. At the same time keep the size of the PPC small !!!!!!!

I hope HTC will change something to the release of these PPCs and hopefully this announcement dose not respond to the final intentions of HTC.

Flash is not an excuse..
Stop taking photos in the dark..

FYI Nokia's best and last phone was the N95.

Regarding the upgrade here, Pro 2 is worth it..

i have the old touch diamond, i think htc has overcomed its pitfalls in except for putting a flash for the camera. The screen size and resolution for diamond 2 are perfect, but i was amazed by touch pro2

I don't see anything out of the ordinary here. I'm happy with my Diamond Thanks to "Dutty Throy's Rom"..
Not much of an upgrade here, Other than:
- Camera
- Battery Life
- Screen Size

I won't need the rest of the 1.8MP, Battery Life is fine 2 - 3 days.
I would like a bigger screen though.
Other than that i would rather wait for the new 6.5 rom for my diamond and we might as well get the "diamond 2" interface from the best cooks around.

P.S. Would go for the the "Pro 2" if necessary. =)

HTC,put in flash light for the camera, its stupid to market a PDA phone without a flash light nowadays. Hope to see improved specs when the actual unit comes out.:)
