New WinMo Smart Phone Reviews on Tom's Guide

When's the last time you checked in on Windows Mobile? Tom's Guide just published a head-to-head review comparing the HTC Touch Pro 2 and the Toshiba TG01 (which isn't even available yet in the U.S.). Aside from running one of the most-criticized pieces of mobile software ever to be carried in someone's pocket, these two phones also sport some of the largest screens available on a cell phone today.

Find out what our reviewer had to say about the phones' design, usability, touch-screen sensitivity, Web browsing, camera and video functions.

Here's an excerpt:

A feature phone with this size of screen would have a matching high-megapixel camera. Given the cost of the processors that go into smart phones, the camera is usually seen as a way of keeping the price down rather than showing off the screen, and both phones here have three megapixel cameras (unlike the five megapixel camera on the HTC Touch Diamond).

The TG01 gets points for having a dedicated camera button, but you have to press and hold it for so long that it’s no slower to press the home screen button on the Touch Pro2 and tap the Camera button on screen."

If you know the iPhone 3GS is not for you, but you're still in the market for a new smart phone, you've got to check out our consumer smart phone coverage this summer. We've tried to include all the smart phones that consumers would consider carrying around for personal use (rather than just for work).

In this article, we compare the Samsung Instinct, Samsung Impression, LG enV Touch, Palm Pre and Nokia N97. Before that, we tackled the Nokia E75 and the Samsung Propel Pro.

    The first article and it has a mistake in it?

    It's a typo... read in to the article and you can see they're talking about the Touch Diamond 2, which does have a 5 megapixel camera.
