    Is this phone still due in SPCS stores this Sunday (10/19...the release date
    I read in recent articles)? Sounds like an odd launch day for a phone.

    I am waiting for the PRO too especially after seeing a Touch Diamond
    yesterday.

    The Touch Diamond from
    http://www.htc.com/us/product.aspx?id=60040
    is 102 mm (L) X 51 mm (W) X 11.35 mm (T)

    And the Touch PRO from
    http://www.htc.com/us/product.aspx?id=65526:
    is 102 mm (L) X 51 mm (W) X 18.05 mm (T)

    My Mogul is:
    4.3"(h) x 2.3"(w) x 0.7"(d)
    uisng
    http://www.metric-conversions.org/cg...2&from=16&to=7

    ..7 inches equals 17.78 mm.

    So that means the PRO will be .27 mm thiner then my Mogul.

    Did you know some Rotate Screen commands are missing from the Diamond?

    I searched the internet today and I found this:
    "Restore screen rotation on HTC Diamond"

    While the Diamond is no doubt a very attractive and functional device, HTC
    has in some ways taken away functionality which Windows Mobile users have
    taken for granted for many years now. An example of one of these is memory
    card expansion, but a more interesting example is the ability to rotate the
    screen, the option for which has been there since WM2003SE.

    When HTC was asked about this they claimed they had designed the product to
    be used single handed, and that this was impossible in landscape mode. A
    more likely explanation however is that they could only design their
    TouchFlo3D UI to work in portrait mode, and that the design challenge would
    have redoubled if they were to support landscape mode too.

    However, this being Windows Mobile, there is no end to the efforts of the
    community to fix what the OEM has managed to mess up. Intrepid Diamond users
    over at XDA-Developers.com have managed to come up with the correct registry
    keys to restore the screen rotation control panel, meaning any app can now
    be viewed both in portrait and landscape mode. Any app that is except the
    TouchFlo UI, which reverts the device to portrait mode when the Home button
    is pressed.

    The entries which need to be changed with a registry editor are:

    HKeyLocalMachine/System/GDI/Rotation change the "HideOrientationUI"
    from 1 to 0

    and

    HKeyLocalMachine/System/GDI/Rotation change the "LandscapeFixed"
    from 1 to 0

    Unfortunately you still have to go to the control panel to affect this
    change every time you need to rotate the screen - the accelerometer only
    work in certain apps, but I am sure the happy people at XDA-Developers wont
    rest until automatic screen rotation in every application is possible.

    I think it was the Diamond and landscape mode. Not the Pro.

    We only have to wait until Sunday to see if the setting for "Orientation"
    has been removed from Settings->System->Screen on the Pro too.

    "Sprint Launches HTC Touch Pro"
    posted Friday, 8:20 AM by Eric M. Zeman
    updated Friday, 8:36 AM
    Updated: specified first retail date and retailer

    Beginning this coming Sunday, Sprint customers will be able to purchase the
    HTC Touch Pro from select national retailers, including Best Buy. It will be
    available via all Sprint sales channels starting November 2. The HTC Touch
    Pro will cost $299.99 with a two-year subscriber agreement, after a $100
    mail-in-rebate and a $25-or-higher data add-on or Everything plan with data.
    The HTC Touch Pro is similar to the Touch Diamond, but adds a slide-out
    QWERTY keyboard.

    Best Buy has the Pro and someone there said it only goes into Landscape mode
    when you use the keyboard.

    The Pro looks better than I thought it would and Best Buy also had an
    unlocked Diamond for use on GSM for $699.

    I bought a Touch Pro at Best buy on the 24th. It is true that the screen
    will only switch to landscape mode when the keyboard is slid out, for
    most applications. There are a few that I have seen that will rotate
    based on the orientation of the phone using the G-Sensor input: Photo
    viewer, Sprint TV, Opera. The keyboard will always override the G-
    Sensor, meaning that the screen will always be landscape if the keyboard
    is open, otherwise the G-Sensor controls the screen orientation.
