While for the most part, the HTC Touch is already an impressive mobile device, there are still sectors who just wish there was another way to input text as opposed to the current trend of today which is the touch screen. Well, HTC’s got a treat for you traditional guys with the release of the HTC Touch Pro.

Aside from the usual features, it comes with a slide-out QWERTY keypad that’ll provide you with a more conventional way of typing. Engadget was fortunate enough to get up-close and personal with this new smart phone, and they’re pretty impressed by it. According to them, the keypad is comfortably proportioned though I still doubt it’ll be that useful for those with plus size hands. It also still lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack and is a bit on the hefty side especially when compared to the iPhone.
