After being rumored for such a long time, the HTC Touch Pro 2 is now official to come to a US carrier. Sprint has just announced that the Windows Mobile-powered smartphone will become available on September 8 for the huge price of $349.99 on a two-year commitment and after a $100 MIR. I’m happy that the handheld will hit the store shelves next Tuesday; however, the price is a “little” too big.
The HTC Touch Pro 2 features a 3.6-inch WVGA touchscreen, sliding landscape full QWERTY keyboard, a 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus, 3.5mm headphone jack, 3G/EVDO Rev A, WiFi, WinMo 6.1, and a TouchFLO 3D UI.
It’s a good phone, and it will be even better when Windows Mobile 6.5 is released, but I’m just disappointed with the price. Sprint and HTC should have found a way to make this smartphone cheaper.
Personally I’m not an iPhone fanboy, but I think the iPhone 3GS is better and cheaper than the Touch Pro2. If it were to trust AT&T then they’re really improving their services, and they also claimed that they don’t have anything to do with the rejection of marvelous iPhone apps like Google Voice Mobile. So what’s it gonna be?
