According to the latest news on the Web, mobile phone carrier Sprint is planning the release of yet another high-end device shortly after the launch of the Palm Pre, only that this time it would be a Windows Mobile-powered handset, the HTC Touch Pro2, which is expected to become available with the US operator sometime in the middle of June.
The upcoming HTC Touch Pro2
should prove to be the next HTC flagship mobile phone running under the Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system, as it includes both a wide range of features and functionalities, as well as a nice design, a WVGA touchscreen display and a full-sliding QWERTY keyboard.
At the same time, it seems that the device
has been spotted in the wild already bearing the Sprint logo, which should mean that the phone is getting close to a release date. For what it's worth, in case it actually comes on Sprint in June, it will arrive ahead of schedule, as it was previously expected to become available only in the third quarter of the year.
The spec list of the HTC Touch Pro2 has been spotted before, but, in case you don't remember all the details, we should say that it comes with a 3.6-inch display that can provide an 800 x 480 pixel resolution, a 3.2-megapixel camera with auto focus, support for EV-DO Rev. A, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and a GPS receiver. The device will run under Windows Mobile 6.1
, but it is also eligible for upgrade to the 6.5 version of the platform as soon as it hits the market.
In case the HTC Touch Pro2 does become available with Sprint in mid-June, the company will become the first US carrier to have the phone, as it will also head towards T-Mobile, which should release it in July
, as well as AT&T, which is expected to release its own version of the handset later during the ongoing year.
