Telus to launch Touch Pro2

Telus on Monday announced plans to launch the HTC Touch Pro2 and Snap smartphones later this month in the Canadian market, while customers can purchase the BlackBerry Tour beginning this week. The Touch Pro2 should arrive in the United States around the same time, with T-Mobile expected to release the device on July 22nd.

The Touch Pro2 features a 3.6-inch touchscreen with 480x800 resolution, along with a slide-out QWERTY keypad. The device runs on Windows Mobile 6.1, with a custom TouchFLO interface, while offering a 3.2-megapixel camera, GPS components and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The HTC Snap, already available in the U.S., also runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 and integrates a QWERTY keypad underneath the display, with basic smartphone features geared for quick e-mail and messaging or calendar functions. The BlackBerry Tour 9630 features a QWERTY keyboard, 3.2-megapixel camera, 480x360 resolution display and wireless modem capabilities.

Pricing information for the HTC Touch Pro2 and Snap have yet to be announced, while the BlackBerry Tour carries a price of $230 with a three-year contract or $600 without an agreement.

    As mentioned earlier in an another thread, the version of the TP2 that Telus will be receiving will included a 3.5mm headphones jack, which is craze news.

    Nothing had been said about the US version, but it now seems that the devices to be sold trough carriers in the states will also get the version with the standard jack. That's some crazy great news, and in my opinion is ample justification for having the TP2 released in North America a few months later than it was in Europe. Woot!
