HTC Touch Pro2 turns into a speakerphone when you turn it over

HTC's new Windows Mobile 6.5-powered smartphone can perform a neat trick:

In addition to the new simplified calling experience, Straight Talk includes an innovative mechanical and acoustic design that features a sophisticated speakerphone experience similar to those found in corporate boardrooms. Straight Talk delivers a high-fidelity voice and sound experience enhanced by asymmetric speakers and advanced noise suppression with full duplex acoustics. When the Touch Pro2 is flipped over it automatically turns into a conference room speakerphone system.

    Am I the only person who prefers a nice sized keypad which works nicely with my thumb to a squashed qwerty keyboard? Otherwise it’s a nice looking phone.

    I can’t beleive it was posted here for over half an hour without someone windows mobile bashing. What’s going on is it some kind of Apple fan public holiday?

    In the quote, I think they missed the word “experience” from the end of the last sentence.

    🙁

    ha, until a one night stand calls to let inform you they’ve just tested positive for something nasty and drop the phone in shock, in the middle of your office, and it lands face down.

    This is so you can cry for help after you drop it because someone is beating your face in for using your speaker phone in public like a jackass.
