HTC Touch Pro at Sprint

Wireless provider Sprint on Friday announced it will soon offer the HTC Touch Pro for sale and use on its network, bringing with it HTC's TouchFLO 3D interface on its 2.8-inch screen along with a five-row QWERTY keyboard and Windows Mobile 6.1. Like the Touch Diamond, the slider has a built-in 3.2-megapixel camera that can scan business cards and produce video. Sprint will bring some of its in-house features to the Touch Pro, including Sprint TV and the ability to download songs from the Sprint Music Store. Access to YouTube will be made available thanks to a custom HTC application.

The Touch Pro will be business-oriented, thanks to its support of Microsoft Office documents and a TV output that will let users make PowerPoint presentations from the device. Other features include a GPS sensor, stereo Bluetooth support and an 802.11b/g Wi-Fi module. A microSD card slot lets users expand upon the built-in 512MB of memory storage, and Sprint will ship the handset with a 1GB card.

Sprint will sell the HTC Touch Pro for $300 with a two-year contract with a minimum $25 data plan and after a $100 mail-in rebate in some stores starting on October 26th; online and Sprint stores receive the device on November 2nd.
