HTC launches Touch Pro, mum on Google Android phone

HTC designs feature touch screen and QWERTY keyboard

AS the industry prepares for the biggest mobile phone release since the iPhone with the Android-based HTC Google phone in the US this week, HTC has remained silent over when the device will be available here instead releasing the Touch Pro through carrier Three.

HTC Australia and New Zealand sales and marketing director Anthony Petts said despite there being a significant announcement in the US regarding a HTC Android phone, he could not talk about the product or when, if at all, it will be available in Australia.

Petts said the new Touch Pro delivers a lot of benefits for business mobile users, including a full keyboard, shortcuts, and a business card reader integrated into the device.

It also has an Opera Web browser, integrated Google Maps and YouTube, but the phone does not offer a SIP client for VoIP.

The Touch Pro is a 3G HSDPA phone; however, it is not yet available for Telstra’s NextG network.

The HTC Touch Pro will be available through 3 mobile stores and dealers across Australia this month for $22 per month on a $69 Cap or $1099 outright.

Other networks will offer the phone from mid-October.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
