Nokia N900 vs. HTC Touch Pro 2
Today I’m posting a comparison between the Nokia N900 and the HTC Touch Pro 2. Aesthetically both phones look the same, Touch Screen and QWERTY keyboard, this was the reason for me to write about them in order to point out their differences.
As my other comparison was, I’m going to follow the same rules. I’m not going to talk about each specification of these phones, only the differences and the important ones in my opinion.
- First we got the processor. The HTC Touch Pro comes with a Qualcomm 528 MHz that it’s not bad at all, but the Nokia N900 flashlight this with the ARM Cortex A8 600Mhz.
- The OS. Nokia N900 presents the Maemo 5, a new OS for mobile phones (open source) that it’s very promising and there is an increasing expectation around it. On the other device, the HTC Touch Pro 2 we found the Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. A very well known OS.
- The Camera on the Nokia N900 is a 5MP one, against a 3.2MP Camera on the HTC Touch Pro 2.
- Dimension & Weight. The Nokia N900 sizes are 110,9 x 59,8 x 18 (19,55) mm while on the HTC Touch Pro 2 are 116 X 59.2 X 17.25 mm (just a little more “tall” 5mm). Their weight it’s pretty much the same, a 181g on the Nokia N900 and 175g on the HTC Touch Pro.
- There is a big difference on the QWERTY Key board. The Nokia N900 has the one we are used to that would be 3 lines while the HTC Touch Pro 2 presents a 5 lines keyboard, interesting!(Check the images below to see this)
- What it’s new on the HTC Touch Pro 2 is technology called StraightTalk, for linking the various platforms of communication that this device has (never been so easy to go from an email to a call or a message). Also comes with a second microphone in order to leave the HTC Touch Pro 2 on a table face down and automatically switch to hands free operation. This really helps when being on a call-conference (For more information about these new technologies, please click here).
- On the Internet subject, the HTC Touch Pro 2 doesn’t present anything new, just what you can expect on a PDA. While on the Nokia N900 full internet like we talk about on others posts.
- Finally, both phones present the same features like Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, etc.
In my opinion, the HTC Touch Pro is made for a different kind of customer. A business customer who needs to be in touch all the time, from conference to conference. That’s the reason for the aim of the new technologies that the HTC Touch Pro 2 presents. While the Nokia N900 customer would be someone who needs to be in touch with his contacts (msn, Skype, Google Talk, etc.), who needs Internet all the time and likes to share photos, videos, etc. More like a Social customer.
