So I am a gadget head and frequently cycle through phones. I don't go for traditional phones or trendy ones. My first non-standard phone some time ago was the Motorola V80 which was a really cool swivel phone with some cool tricks.

My next phone was a pretty cool Motorola Rizr phone. More functional and professional then the V80 and a pretty slick matte blue color. I love this phone, but it is just too limited.

I needed a smartphone, but one with a large screen and a full keyboard. But I also need a cool looking phone. That was a tall order and with a decent tax return in hand I started researching it and decided on the HTC Touch Pro. This is a great phone with more functionality and features then you can shake a stick at...some highlights:

Processor - Qualcomm® MSM7201A™ 528 MHz
Operating System - Windows Mobile® 6.1 Professional
Memory ROM - 512 MB
RAM - 288MB
Keyboard - Slide-out 5-row QWERTY keyboard
GPS - Internal GPS antenna
Connectivity - Bluetooth® 2.0 with EDR
- Wi-Fi®: IEEE 802.11 b/g
- HTC ExtUSB™ (11-pin mini-USB 2.0, audio jack, and TV Out* in one)
Main camera - 3.2 megapixel color camera with auto focus and flash light
Second camera - VGA CMOS color camera

And much, much more. After 7 unsuccessful bids on Ebay I finally won one. I'll have it in less then a week and I am very, very excited.
