T-Mobile's Touch Pro2 launching Mid-August
So those that have been waiting for the Touch Pro2 to finally come overseas, the wait is over… well, almost. In a little over 2 weeks, T-Mobile is launching the Touch Pro2. Scheduled release date according to T-Mobile reps, is August 12th.
We have actually had a European Touch Pro2 here in the office for maybe 2 months already and think it is the best Windows Mobile device out so far. We have yet to get our hands on a T-Mobile branded version to do a quick comparison, but rumors have it that the specs will be the same only differences will be as follows:
- No VGA front facing video camera (which means no video conferencing, no loss as our networks don’t fully support it anyway).
- Different body style. Chrome has been removed, keys have been turned black instead of grey, and the back has been changed. Oh and of course, T-Mobile’s name is on the front and back of the device in case you were confused at to what carrier you had for a second.
- And the main benefit over the Euro version (at least when using it here in the States), is that it has T-Mobile’s 3G frequency (1700mhz) built in, making 3G surfing possible on T-Mobile’s network.
So who’s getting one?
