Press release, June 4; Steve Shen, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 4 June 2008]

High Tech Computer (HTC), on June 4, unveiled its advanced next-generation business phone, the HTC Touch Pro, which utilizes similar styling and functionality to its Touch Diamond and introduces a variety of business-focused enhancements that make getting work done on the go quick and easy, according to the company.

"The HTC Touch Pro and Touch Diamond have created a new generation of HTC touch devices that make the promise of the one-hand, one-touch mobile Internet a reality," company president and CEO Peter Chou said.

In addition to its 3D touch interface TouchFLO 3D and enhanced Web browsing capability, HTC also introduced a new five-row QWERTY keyboard layout that it claims makes typing-intensive tasks like composing email or working on Microsoft Office documents easier. Built-in TV-out functionality means users can deliver PowerPoint presentations from the Touch Pro.

The HTC Touch Pro will be available to customers across all major European, Asian and the Middle Eastern markets in late summer. North American and Latin American versions of the Touch Pro will be available later in 2008, the company detailed.

In related news, HTC has declined to confirm or deny a newspaper report stating that Sony Ericsson may acquire the Taiwan-based smartphone maker, the Chinese-language Commercial Times quoted the company as indicating.

HTC will not comment on rumors or speculation, the paper quoted the company as saying.
