Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Arabic version is simply a ROM update, there is no date yet from HTC, but they will release it as they already relased it for the Diamond.
The keyboard will not be in Arabic, but the virtual keyboard will have the Arabic characters after the ROM update.
HTC says that the Arabic is not built in for this set unlike the Tytn II, so the slide out keyboard does not have Arabic character.
Hope that helped.

I considered waiting around for the TOUCH HD, but there is no guarantee that Three will be retailing it. I won't ever buy a phone without it being attached to a network, due to strength of warranty and support.
The specs on the GSM arena website for the Xperia do not mention the added 64MB for graphics card, so not sure where you found that information.
I work in the telecommunications industry, so it is advantageous for me to become fluent with the latest handset.
The PRO is unlike anyother, its like super fast PDA meet rich media user interations
if you look for good UI experience, namely, quick response, multi touch points, flipping pictures, zooming in/out; iphone does better

What is your opinion about the HTC Touch HD, you could have waited to get a bigger screen rather than 2.8", or you could wait for Xperia.
Do you know that xperia is 384 MB ram? I think HTC touch Pro is 288 MB ram plus the 64MB for the graphics so total of 352. Can you confirm this info?

I am proud to say that I one of the first Hutchison Three Customers to contract to the HTC Touch Pro, which was arrived on Saturday 27th September at Three stores around the country.
The phone is everything that I expected and much more, the ultra sharp 640x480 VGA touch screen is unlike any phone I have ever seen
I was contemplating holding off upgrading until the HTC Diamond came in, but confident that I have made the right decision with the pro.
Although the weight and thickness is greater on the PRO, the additional 94MB Ram plus double ROM (total 512MB) make performance ultra smooth and worthy of tradeoff.
The slide out keyboard gives more freedom in writing long messages such as this forum post, confortably type on the querty keyboard
This phone is the next step in Mobile Communications and far greater of a phone than the i-phone copy cats Omnia and Xperia

Thank you again
i am from Trinidad & Tobago & i sell cell phones so i kinda know alot about dem & i can say dat dis handset is very good i brought in some & kept one 4 myself.I use a n95 8gb & a n81 8gb but dis htc helps me with my business. I really recommend it over others in the class of windows mobile 6.1 like d samsung i900 omnia.
hi, does anyone know how long does the battery last without on standby mode? i just want to make sure as the battery is giving me problems.

1- Better interface than Omnia, touch flo 3D versus touch WIZ.
2- Fantastic resolution even smaller screen, VGA vs QVGA. Pixels are more in Pro than Omnia.
3- Kings of WM, as you may know that they manufacturing the platforms for Imate, and also manufactured Sony Xperia and other sets.
4- Keyboard is better than the screen keyboard, however the set is fat and heavy, but this is a price of the keyboard.
5- Ram is more than Omnia.
6- Youtube client installed.
The decision is finally yours.
If i buy it from USA, will it work in Cyprus (EUROPE). What is european and american version? Two models? WTF?
i cant decide between the pro or the omnia. i know that they have pretty much the same features give and take a few. which one would be better? i tend 2 switch phones kinda quick so, i need a phone that i wont get tried of quick.
A tip for all the HTC Touch Owners. Do this and learn a bunch more about your phone. Go to www.htp.com and click support. Then choose the HTC Touch Pro. Then click User Guides. The whole HTC Touch Pro Manual will open in Adobe Acrobat and it's a big file over 9mb and consists of 312 pages with diagrams. OMG THIS WILL SAVE YOU SOME FRUSTRATION. I don't care if you built this phone I guarantee you will learn something new that will help you in the future. I stored mine on the storage card and advise all to not store it directly on the phone. It's a big file.
HTC has earned my respect to say they are Superior and Stand Up. They stay open until 1:00am Central Standard time in the USA and actually will assist with issues. WONDERFUL.
The issue I had about typing is easily fixed. Once you go into the writing document of your choice whether Word, Excel, or Notes there is an keyboard icon. Press it and you will notice a triangle by the same keyboard icon that is a gateway for more typing options. Deselect the fields you don't won't which are different from the fields that show on tapping the reguar menu options.. FLAWLESS...
We all should "Thank" him for the offer (selling phone online), unfortunately I will not be his client and never will - I don't believe in online phone purchase. Too risky. Assuming I really receive the phone after paying him (No.1 risk), I'll be troubling him more after that. As a fussy customer (me), I'll often contact him with new info, software upgrades or even warranty claims even on small matters therefore he'll need to prepare to absorb my courier charges to & fro. He'll probably get so fed up and decides not to return my phone (No.2 Risk). Or maybe he'll decide to shut down his operation in order for me not to disturb him (No.3 Risk - no after sales service).
Ha, Ha, Ha (LOL), hope my dry sense of humor above helps to open up some eyes for guys wanting to buy phone online. My recommendation - please don't. Product Warranty is the only fallback you'll have after giving your hard earned cash to the seller so better buy from your local authorised distributor.
