HTC 7 PRO (AKA.) HTC TOUCH PRO 3!

I wrote a blog to HTC and I would like to get Sprint opinion and every one else opinion about the HTC 7 PRO with Windows Phone 7 which suppose to be the successor to the HTC Touch Pro 2! I've also attached a file of the message I sent to HTC. I really cant waite to get Sprint's opinion about the blog and I hope Sprint consider making some changes to the American version that is specifically for them in America! 

HTC,

Htc 7 Pro

            I would like to know the big difference between the Htc Touch Pro 2 and the new Htc 7 Pro, which is heading to sprint next year, and how does the Htc 7 Pro compare to the Samsung Epic 4G? I have also added a conclusion that people would like to see you take into consideration. It is just a small favor for the small upgrade to what suppose to be the successor to the touch Pro 2.

            In conclusion, The Htc touch pro 3 (aka) Htc 7 Pro, which suppose to be more of a business phone, should have a frontward facing camera, at least a micro sd memory card reader for those of us who already have a 16gig micro sd memory card, at least a 4.0 inch screen, and run on the 4G network. I will not mention that the Bluetooth and USB uses old technology on the Htc 7 Pro when the new Bluetooth and USB upgraded technology is available. Asking for mobile hotspot and a 1.5 dual core processor would be asking for too much. Most importantly Htc, how does the Htc 7 Pro compare to the Samsung Epic 4G besides the OS?! For those who would like to see the specs of the Samsung Epic 4G with Sprint copy and paste the link in the address bar. http://www.phonearena.com/htmls/Samsung-Epic-4G-phone-p_4720.html  and  http://shop.sprint.com/NASApp/onlinestore/en/Action/DisplayPhones?INTNAV=ATG:HESmiley Tonguehones 

Notice the full five-row keyboard and big 4-inch screen with a frontward facing camera for video conference. Most importantly check out the specs! So what is the difference between the Htc touch Pro 2 and Htc 7 Pro, and how does it compare to the Samsung Epic 4G?!

Re: HTC 7 PRO (AKA.) HTC TOUCH PRO 3!

You just posted the differances between the pro2 and 7pro lol.

1.5Ghz processors? That's not asking for too much, they are just not out yet not too mention they will prolly be 1.3 or 1.4 or hey maybe even 1.6. Who knows till the time comes.

How do they compare to the epic, your comparing apples to oranges.

and btw, I'm sure Sprint knows their specs on their phones.

Re: HTC 7 PRO (AKA.) HTC TOUCH PRO 3!

The technology is out and they are working on a 1.5 quard core. Not to mention when the 7 Pro comes out in America that techology will be in phones while we have to settle for old technology at a high price. I gave you the spec sheet and you didnt pay attention to the old blue tooth and usb technology that suppose to be offered with the phone. I'm sure Sprint knows the spec and will improve the 7 Pro before its released in America and can get people like you to buy it and come out with a better version later to make more money from you. Congrats Sprint! Apples and Oranges and what ever kind of fruits you want to mention does not answer the question about whats how it compares to the Samsung Epic 4G besides OS. It at least have mobile hot spot and run on the 4G network with a frontward facing camera and a 4.0 inch screen. People want to make a good decision before they spend their hard ern money, and people want to compare and see the specs before they make a decision. I would rather have windows mobile 7 on my touch pro 2 with Sprint from what the specs show as of NOW! I have a 16 gig micro sd memory card that does a great job and I have the option to expand it with a 32 gig if I choose to. Thats something the 7 Pro does not offer at the MOMENT.overclocked, I've added some specs for you on the Samsung Epic 4G.

    Re: HTC 7 PRO (AKA.) HTC TOUCH PRO 3!

    Why do I need to know the specs on the galaxy s? The only info we got so far on mobile multicore processors is nvidia's system-on-chip tegra/2. You want Win7 on your pro, have you checked to see if there's a flashable ROM?

    btw this is overclocked

    HTC 7 PRO - Motorola es400e

    What Im intrested to see is if you will be able to get the HTC touch pro 7 or the Motorola es400e with just a data package? Right now I have an old school sprint plan that includeds unlimited data and no roaming, unlimited txts, first incoming minute free, 1000 minutes, free nights n weekends starting at 7pm with all the other old perks for just $29.99 plus 23% off through my work. However sprint will not let me get an android phone with out opting in to a plan that cost 69.99 or more. I'm not changing my plan for android!! You can use other windows based phones on my plan now. I hope that sprint will honor this with these new windows phones. If anyone knows what the plans are please let me know???????????

    Re: HTC 7 PRO - Motorola es400e

    It would have been cool for Sprint to get the HD7 like T-mobile, but oh well.  Sprint always has a Windows business phone in its lineup, so I gues 2011 is no exception.  I know I won't be getting the Pro 7, I've had the Pro and Pro 2, so it's time to move on, even though the OS is WP 7.  I'm not too impressed with the new OS anyway.

    As far as comparisons go, it appears that the Pro 2 and Pro 7 are pretty much the same phone except the OS has changed.  Comparing Pro 7 to the Epic, you have 3G vs 4G and Windows vs Android.  There are hardware differences, but nothing to call home about.
