There have been enough leaks that there can be no doubt that Sprint will release the HTC Touch Pro2 in the near future, but exactly when that will happen remains unknown. Still, according to the latest unconfirmed report, this wireless carrier will introduce this high-end Windows phone at the beginning of fall.
Pictures of the successor to the Touch Pro bearing the Sprint logo started appearing on the Web in late spring, and and there have been numerous rumors circulating about this device since then.
Sprint customers eager to get their hands on this smartphone might not have to wait much longer. A document leaking out of this carrier indicates that the Touch Pro2 will debut on September 3, along with several other models.
For those who are unfamiliar with it, this will be a "slider," a smartphone with a landscape-oriented sliding QWERTY keyboard. It will also have a 3.6 inch, WVGA (800 by 480 pixel) touchscreen. It will mark the return of the slide-and-tilt screen that was a hallmark of an earlier smartphone from HTC, the AT&T Tilt.
This HTC model will debut with Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1, but make the jump to Windows Mobile 6.5 when this new version is available.
It will be built around a 528 MHz processor from Qualcomm, 288 MB of RAM, and a microSD card slot.
Sprint's version will supposedly have support for this carrier's high-speed EV-DO Rev. A network. It will also have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 3.2 megapixel auto-focus camera, a GPS receiver, and a 1500 mAh battery.
Naturally, it is expected to replace the original Touch Pro in Sprint's product lineup.
Coming to T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and More
If Sprint might be the second U.S. wireless phone company to offer HTC's latest model, but not the first: that honor is going to belong to T-Mobile, who will launch the Touch Pro2 next week.
Others are also working to get versions of this smartphone on the market, including Verizon and AT&T.
