TMobile HTC training
T-Mobile is allegedly set to begin internal training on the HTC Dash 3G, also known as the Snap, and the Touch Pro2, according to a leaked schedule posted on the Boy Genius Report. The events are scheduled to begin on June 16th and last through July 2nd in the Baltimore area. The carrier is expected to launch the devices shortly after the training is completed, likely sometime later in July.
Touch Pro becoming Fuze?
HTC's Touch Pro smartphone, promised for North America before the end of 2008, appears to be headed toward AT&T as the Fuze, a report claims. The Pro is distinguished primarily by its sliding QWERTY keyboard, and a 2.8-inch VGA (480x640) touchscreen; an alleged photo and list of specifications for the Fuze appear to echo these facts, with the notable difference of AT&T-specific markings on the keyboard. The phone is, however, lacking an AT&T badge in its current depiction.
