A number of U.S. wireless carriers have either already released the HTC Touch Pro or are expected to do so in the near future. One in the latter group is AT&T, and a number of unconfirmed reports say the debut will happen very soon.
Specifically, November 4 is the day this business-oriented smartphone will be released by AT&T. At least, that’s what WMExperts have is reporting being told by multiple sources.
An earlier rumor indicated that this carrier intends to charge $300 for the Touch Pro.
The Touch Pro has a built-in sliding keyboard, and is expected to replace the AT&T Tilt in this carrier’s lineup.
It runs Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional with HTC’s finger-friendly TouchFLO 3D user interface on top.
This smartphone sports a 2.8-inch VGA touchscreen, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, GPS, a microSD/SDHC card slot, and a 1350 mAh battery.
This device is already available in Europe and some U.S. retailers, but the upcoming version will have something new: support for AT&T’s 3G service.
Here, There, and Everywhere
The HTC Touch Pro is shaping up to be one of the most widely available smartphones around. It debuted in Europe over the summer, and Sprint launched it in the U.S. just this week.
In addition to the multiple reports that it’s coming soon to AT&T, Verizon is supposed to be prepping the CDMA version for release next month.
