HTC is working hard to make their devices one hand, one touch capable allowing users to take advantage of their 3D touch interface called TouchFLO 3D. The TouchFLO interface allows users to surf through popular functions of the device such as messaging, calendar appointments and making calls. Thankfully for Windows Mobile we have great OEMs like HTC creating a better user experience than that of Microsoft, many devoted Windows Mobile MVPs, users and customers have been pushing Microsoft to fix simple issues with the Windows Mobile OS since 2000. Microsoft plans to re-invent the OS with Windows Mobile 7 and address many of the complaints.

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