Image Gallery: Sprint Touch Pro and AT&T Fuze Windows Mobile devices

HTC has been pushing the limits with Windows Mobile devices and improves the HTC Touch Diamond for the enterprise by adding a QWERTY keyboard and larger battery. The device is known as the HTC Raphael or Touch Pro and the two models I had a chance to play with from Sprint and AT&T are slightly different (primarily in the keyboard design). The Touch Pro and Fuze are high end Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional devices with 3G radios, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS.

The HTC Fuze comes with several needed accessories, but is missing a stereo headset.

You need this cable to use standard headsets.

You can still charge up and sync your Fuze with the included adapter.

The backs of the two Touch Pro variants are quite a bit different. The HTC Fuze is similar to the Touch Diamond.

There is a large capacity 1340 mAh battery, SIM card slot, and microSD card slot under the back cover.

You can see here that AT&T created some of their own folders to include bloatware on the phone.

There is lots of junk on the device, as partially shown in this AT&T Music folder.

I know there are some services people may like, but all these trial games are unnecessary.

AT&T includes an IM utility that uses text messages instead of data.

You can find many of the standard utilities from Windows Mobile in this tools folder.

AT&T made a tab on the TouchFLO 3D Today screen just for all their services. Each service requires a subscription too.

The light gray background does not show off the display very well. You can change the background for just this single tab, but all others remain gray.
