The HTC Touch Pro is now available on Sprint’s website for $299 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a two-year contract. The rebate requires that you have the Everything plan, Data Premier add-on, or PRO Pack add-on. If you’re going to use the data feature on this phone, you’ll likely have one of those anyway.
Sprint sent me a review unit on Friday and I’ve been using it for a couple days now. I’ll have a full review next week but if you’ve been waiting for this particular phone, go ahead and buy it.
It’s one of the nicer Sprint phones I’ve ever used, and the keyboard makes a world of difference over the HTC Touch Diamond. It’s definitely a bit thick, though. Kinda reminds me of having an average-sized point and shoot camera in my pocket. If you’re concerned about the size, try to find something that’s 4 x 2 x .71 inches to see what you’ll be getting into. But try not to let it be deal-breaker, it’s still a great device.
