HTC Touch DUAL Ships in US

HTC on Friday announced that it has begun shipping the HTC Touch DUAL to Best Buy, the official home of the unlocked device in the US. The combo touchscreen and slider phone is the first device Stateside to run Windows Mobile 6.1 and is the first to natively handle 3G access over HSDPA on the 850MHz band used by AT&T; without the carrier restriction, however, DUAL buyers can also use EDGE and all other features on T-Mobile's network.

The shipping announcement also gives the sliding Touch concrete release information. HTC will sell the phone for $550 through the retailer and anticipates the handset being available both in stores and through the Best Buy website this weekend. No plans are in place to offer a phone locked and subsidized through a carrier, as HTC has previously done with most of its Americanized cellphones.
