Sprint Touch Pro and AT&T Fuze
HTC has been pushing the limits with Windows Mobile devices and improves the HTC Touch Diamond for the enterprise by adding a QWERTY keyboard and larger battery. The device is known as the HTC Raphael or Touch Pro and the two models I had a chance to play with from Sprint and AT&T are slightly different (primarily in the keyboard design). The Touch Pro and Fuze are high end Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional devices with 3G radios, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS.

You can see here that AT&T created some of their own folders to include bloatware on the phone.

AT&T Music folder
More bloatware on the HTC Fuze.
Games & apps folder
I know there are some services people may like, but all these trial games are unnecessary.
AT&T Messaging folder
AT&T includes an IM utility that uses text messages instead of data.
You can find many of the standard utilities from Windows Mobile in this tools folder.
AT&T dedicated tab
AT&T made a tab on the TouchFLO 3D Today screen just for all their services. Each service requires a subscription too.

The light gray background does not show off the display very well. You can change the background for just this single tab, but all others remain gray.
