HTC Touch Pro2 coming to T-Mobile
If you're a fan of Windows Mobile and you're on T-Mobile, you may be happy to know that the HTC Touch Pro2 is coming soon. This slider is a fantastic smartphone (if you like sliders) and has a 528 MHz processor, 288 MB of RAM, and a microSD card slot. Like other HTC smartphones, it also includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a built-in GPS chip, and a camera. I use the flash on my camera as a flashlight.
This phone will come with Windows Mobile 6.1 but it will also be capable of running Windows Mobile 6.5 (and I believe that software upgrade will be offered through HTC for all users).
I'm guessing that we can expect to see this model on Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T. Isn't it great when we can get the same phone on all major wireless carriers? Will the U.S. ever move in that direction? Or, will we stay forever stuck in this strange system where each carrier has access to a few novel phones that are not available anywhere else?
