Clove.co.uk = £517 inc vat
Expansys = £529 inc vat (Still more expensive even with the £10 off discount!)
Handtec = £499

Obviously some of these do delivery free, some dont.

WHAT ... you've ordered the Touch Pro too ... crazy ... I'm glad this site pays you to play with such toys, otherwise V would be going up the wall !!!

I really am swaying towards the touch pro. If it had the camera in it that the omnia does, id be totally sold. But going to check more photo's from the pro.

Damnit! I need money! Anyone want to *cough* lend *cough* me money? :D

HTC really haven't bothered with much Touch Pro advertising have they?

The Diamond was from HTC, the TP is a loaner and I bought the i900.

I do buy a lot, the missus DOES go up the wall :D

The Camera in the i900 is what's really making me love it. With a few software tweaks (e.g. haptics on input) I would be 100% sold I reckon.

aaargh I really dont know which one to plump for. How bearable is the camera on the Touch Pro? As thats it's only negative point.

Cant wait for my upgrade! Really looking forward to it!
Whos the mole on here that can give t-mob updates? Do you know any more about this?


Ditto... I'm still with my Vario II, and [b]very[/u] tempted (understatement) by the Touch Pro. But can I get on with Touch Flo, or disable it? Or should I wait for WM 7... the million dollar questions.

I'm ready to upgrade, cummon T... where is the new Vario :-(

Do you get a case in the box and if so does it have a belt clip or not. Heard rumors it doesnt have a clip like the tytn 2 case.

I have the Diamiond and miss my keyboard from my Kiaser. Can anyone tell me if this is noticably thicker than the diamond or if this feels better in the pocket than the Kaiser? i believe this is lighter than the Kaiser again can anyone tell?

/e goes of to cry and think about selling his much loved Diamiond.

I must say, LOVING this phone.

Definitely the best "Out of box" WinMo experience I've had. I've done zero tweaking and it's a just a straight up great device.

I got mine from Inkino (9 Great Russell Street) for the princely sum of £520. Which is 100% comparable wiht online prices when you factor in delivery etc. I also picked up a G300 cradle which he did for £30.

So far: Best phone I've ever owned. The VGA screen is awesome, the keyboard takes some getting used to coming from a Kaiser but getting there. The on-screen keyboard is also becoming very natural to use. Such a brilliant device.

Still loving my TyTN III.

I have slowly unearthed some niggles though. Strangely, they're all in the same area: locking the device.

I use the Hold-End-Key to lock the screen and keys. However, this doesn't lock the volume buttons, which is unfortunate because those are the ones that are most likely to be activated accidentally! How hard is it for the designers to understand that locking the keys should lock the keys? All of them!

As I've mentioned somewhere else, there's no auto-keylock facility. All I need it to do is keylock automatically when the device is turned on. That would do, because it would mean that if the device wakes up in my pocket (for whatever reason) the keys and screen are locked. At the moment, I have to remember to lock it before I put it in my pocket. If the device is already on, I do tend to remember because I can see it's not locked. But if the device is off, I tend to forget because there's no obvious visual cue that it isn't locked.

(As an aside, I discovered that EndKey.exe in Windows\System is the program that locks the screen. If I could get that one to run automatically when the device is turned on, then all would be well, I think.)

The flush screen is great for usability, as fingers (and more usually, thumbs) can access all areas of the screen easily. However, the lack of bezel means that when the phone is in my pocket, if it wakes up (and isn't locked! Grr...) then it's much easier for the screen to be inadvertently 'touched' in the wrong place. I've already hung up on someone accidentally while retrieving the phone from my pocket because of this. Actually, I'm not sure locking the device would help in this case, because it seems that even when it's locked, it still allows screen touches to activate the 'answer' and 'hang up' buttons. Again, how hard is it for them to understand that when the device is locked, nothing should work until it's unlocked? That's the whole point of it!

Anyway, I'm sure I'll find a solution for these niggles eventually. Still a great phone!

Ah-ha!

S2U2 seems to solve all my problems. I've installed it on my TyTN III, and it appears to work fine. It now has a nice "slide to unlock" bar, like the iPhone. :D

I'll report back if I have any problems with it, but this is a positive step.

Unfortunately, S2U2 severely drains the battery. And I mean severely. I have made a donation to the author, though, in the hope that he can fix it sometime. This is the neatest solution by far, and it'll be great if it can be made to work properly.

I also tried VJDeviceLock, but unfortunately the HTC Touch Pro wakeup event doesn't seem to work, so things that are set to run on wakeup don't seem to run at all. Shame.
