HTC Touch Pro2 at Sprint
Sprint today became the next US carrier to pick up a version of HTC's Touch Pro2. Unlike the T-Mobile version, Sprint's is a dual-network phone that supports both its own CDMA and EVDO technology as well as quad-band GSM for roaming abroad on an international plan. It also comes preloaded with apps for Sprint services, such as its navigation, NFL and audio/video streaming.
Its feature set is otherwise similar to the reference Windows Mobile 6.1 phone, including its signature 3.6-inch, 800x480 touchscreen, slide-out keyboard, GPS and Wi-Fi. A microSDHC slot is responsible for most of the phone's memory.
Sprint's pricing for the phone is as steep as for T-Mobile, as it will cost $350 when paired with a two-year contract and a large $100 rebate. Sales start both online and in stores on September 8th.
