T-Mobile drops Wing phone
Wireless provider T-Mobile is no longer listing the aging HTC Wing slider handset on its website, hinting at a very near release of what's believed to be its predecessor, the Touch Pro2, also from HTC. What could be named the Wing II when it launches at the provider, the new handset sports the same horizontal form factor as the Wing, but has a larger 3.6-inch, 480x800 resolution touchscreen. No release date is confirmed for this phone, but it has recently been approved for use at T-Mobile by the FCC.
Other features of the Touch Pro2, code-named Rhodium while it is undergoing testing, include a 3.2-megapixel camera, GPS sensor, Wi-Fi and Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system that will run on HTC's TouchFLO interface. [via TmoNews]
