Touch Pro 2 probably destined for T-Mobile?

Touch Pro 2 probably destined for T-Mobile?
We’ve seen almost every wireless carrier in the U.S. offer some variant of HTC’s Touch Pro except for one; T-Mobile that is. Taking a look at their website still shows the aging T-Mobile Wing as their only Windows Mobile Pro offering. So maybe they might skip over the Touch Pro and go right into the Touch Pro 2? The guys over at XDA Developers managed to get their hands on a Touch Pro 2 ROM that may have some ties with T-Mobile in the United States. Some evidence to support this conclusion is that the ROM has the same U.S. country ID code found on HTC’s other devices; the Dash and Shadow on T-Mobile.  And of course MyFaves will be on there as well as YouTube and Telenav. This is definitely good news for any T-Mobile customer looking to find something fresh other than the T-Mobile Wing. Although it’s a bummer that HTC’s current offerings don’t look to be released, at least they’ll be one of the first to get a taste of Windows Mobile 6.5 and all the goodies coming along with the Touch Pro 2.

Seems like T-Mobile is getting their act together. Will we see more 3G markets open for them? And just when we see WM6.5 devices about to pop-up, we get WM7 screenshots. Also, please make it quad-band UMTS phone, T-Mobile. [850/1700/1900/2100].

If they do... Envious, I am. Very nice, this phone is. Verizon is getting their act together too, but it's taking them longer... Like they need to be on Maury and have the drill instructor out there telling them they need to get better phones if they want their customers to stay satisfied, in a very loud manner, of course. T-Mobile is just in need of a little therapy, and maybe some Riddelin to even out their temperament.... Anyway, I'll be excited to see what HTC does with the rest of the carriers this year

I'm not bashing on T-Mobile, but what would HTC throw the Pro 2 at T-Mobile first and not AT&T? I'm just curious, because it would seem that most of the features on the phone would get used more with an AT&T customer over a T-Mobile customer...meh

It makes sense if you think about how long it's been since T-Mobile has been selling the wing, as well has how long it took AT&T to bring the fuze stateside. T-Mobile needs an MDA/Wing replacement yesterday, while AT&T/Sprint/Verizon have only recently released the TP, so will likely wait until the TP has been out a full year. I think HTC's massive product 'leak' was for the US carriers that tend to drag their heels on implementations. Hopefully the carriers will take the hint and bring the phones sooner. Makes you wonder how abysmal Touch Pro sales are now that many/most/all? are waiting for the TP2

I absolutely agree Sundog, maybe others should take note and stop trying to Hate on T-Mobile just because its the Trendy thing to do with the Ignorant Posters of the web 2.0. It's refreshing to hear some intelligence for once instead of attention grabbing Ignorant comments that most tend to post.

I'm sorry, but AT&T should really get this phone instead. The Touch Pro 2 seems like an AT&T phone.

I'm sorry, but ATT is complete and utter JUNKY and JANKY and should go to all the other carriers First Especially TMOb because it just seems like a T-Mobile USA Phone and way more well deserved than all the whiny brats currently subscribed to AT@T.

It doesn't matter which GSM carrier gets it first, as long as a GSM carrier gets it. XD

Yeah, I was just thinking on the side of HTC, like, if my company made a product, and that product had amazing features, I would want whoever bought that product to actually use those features; not saying that no T-Mobile customer would use the Pro2 to its limits, just that when I was a T-Mobile sales rep, I only got a couple of potential customer actually asking about the different features of w/e 'smartphone' they were looking at, most of the rest just wanted the Shadow or the Wing because it looked cool, it was trendy. Its kinda like the person who goes and gets a Mercedes AMG and actually drives the speed limit..

Why should it? Doesn't Verizon all ready have the Storm and the Omina? It doesn't need the Touch Pro 2.

It doesn't matter. HTC has too look at which carrier and which customers would benefit more from a smart phone. Looking at AT&T, there are a lot of business people that would use AT&T for their smart phones because some of them can be used over seas.

It looks like all 4 major US carriers will get this. I think that, in addition to AT&T and Tmobile USA, the Sprint TP2 is rumored to have international roaming capabilities (sim card).
