Rumors had the launch of the Sprint-branded Touch Pro 2 pinned all over the calendar, but all signs as of late have pointed at a September 8th release. Sure enough, Sprint just sealed the deal: the Sprint Touch Pro 2 will be shipping in just over a week.
And just as we’d predicted, Sprint’s price matching T-Mobile here penny-for-penny: after contracts and rebates are said and done, your wallet will be $350 lighter.
Fun fact: For some reason, Sprint sent over the image you see up above as a massive (4800×3600) 8 megabyte JPEG. If anybody ever needs to print out billboard-sized pictures of the Touch Pro 2, let us know!
HTC Touch Pro2 from Sprint offers a sophisticated approach to business by combining the power of Sprint’s National Mobile Broadband Network (EV-DO Rev. A) with access to Windows Mobile 6.1 and the award-winning HTC TouchFlo™ 3D touch-screen experience. The modern design features a large 3.6-inch WVGA tilting touch screen and full sliding QWERTY keyboard, making keeping in contact with colleagues and customers easy and intuitive. Easily switch from e-mail to a call with one touch by simply selecting a friend or colleague’s picture right in your e-mail. Customers can create an instant office with Straight Talk’s noise-filtering dual speakers, and microphones create a professional-quality speakerphone.
