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."
