Verizon Touch Pro2 gets world features

Verizon this morning became the third US carrier to get a version of the HTC Touch Pro2. Unlike some of the provider's past conversions of HTC's Windows Mobile smartphones, the handset is virtually the same in design and performance as the reference CDMA version, with 288MB of RAM and a 528MHz processor. It mirrors the Sprint edition in becoming a world phone with quad-band GSM and EDGE as well as single-band HSPA to give it voice and 2G roaming nearly everywhere and 3G roaming in Europe.

The Windows Mobile 6.1 phone continues to center on a large 3.6-inch, 800x480 touchscreen with a custom TouchFLO interface as well as a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Likewise, it brings a 3.2-megapixel camera, Verizon-native 3G over EVDO Revision A, GPS and Wi-Fi.

Cost is the largest advantage of the Verizon model, as it sells for a much lower $200 (versus $350 at Sprint or T-Mobile) after signing a contract and getting a mail-in rebate. Order start Friday both online and at retail.
