HTC Touch Pro is Diamond with a QWERTY
posted by Nanko R. / Jun 04, 2008, 2:19 AM
The rest of the features, including the VGA 2.8” screen, built-in WiFi, aGPS, Bluetooth 2.0, and the 3.2-megapixel camera, remain the same. The device runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 plus, employing the TouchFLO 3D interface personalization, but judging from one of the stock photos, it seems that some additional custom menus for the organizer functionality will be added.
Unfortunately, just as the Touch Diamond, the Touch Pro is a tri-band GSM with dual-band UMTS/HSDPA, which means that it is not a global phone. However, it will also have versions for both the European/Asian market and for North America. The former will launch in late summer, while the one for us will be available “later in 2008”.

You shouldn't be so mean when you don't know anything yourself... That's only in Europe and Asia. HTC is already releasing the Diamond on Sprint and will most likely make this to on Sprint. They usually provide the touch screen phones to Sprint because this is the predecessor to the HTC Touch.

or we can just state fact. I know for a fact that sprint is releasing this phone around a month from now. They released the touch diamond today although it is only available for direct shipping. Call sprint directly and ask then they will tell you. Anyone done that for the other carriers? Or are people just reading hype?

Actually the phone will be coming to sprint. If you go to services and click on SPRINT, go to the UPCOMING phones and youll see both model phones on there showing its coming to SPRINT.

those are the CDMA versions of the phones and phonearena does not even know if that is truly the case or not, they are just rumored so until they actually get hardcore facts that is just a guess that there are going to be CDMA versions of these phones. also these phones are going to go with t-mobile not at&t, at least not right away

WHAT!!! It better not go to T-MOBILE. Your going to take a high end phone and give it to a SORRY service. That doesn't make any sense. Itll go to SPRINT on the CDMA and AT&T on GSM. Go to T-MOBILE. Please dont make me laugh. Its like giving a LAMBORGINI to a baby. It wouldnt know what to do with it. T-MOBILE...LOL

For Everyones Information...T-Mobile aka VoiceStream was the first US GSM network...AND they have more of their own owned network than any other US carrier. I used to work for Nokia (for 12 years) when VoiceStream was building their GSM network building and buying land for towers. Several of the other US carriers pay dearly every month to use the T-Mobile owned towers. GSM is the international standard in Europe, Australia and much of Asia and Africa...CDMA is proprietary American. A cell-phone carrier typically gets 832 radio frequencies to use in a city. Each cell phone uses two frequencies per call -- a duplex channel -- so there are typically 395 voice channels per carrier which are split among each cell. (The other 42 frequencies are used for control channels. Therefore, in a TDMA-based digital system can carry three times as many calls as an analog system, so each cell has about 168 channels available. In other words, in any one cell, 168 people can be talking on their cell phone at one time. After that you get dropped calls...not carrier specific either...

I don't know if you are going to read this post again, but could you forward that to all the CDMA haters out there. 3x as many calls at one time on a CDMA network compared to GSM. GSM is inefficient. But Don't worry GSM lovers, I anticipate in another 7-10 years, GSM and CDMA will both go away and be replaced with something better.

HTC phones are bad. They don't have a endurance. My HTC Wizard or AT&T 8525 stopped working after 1 year. It was not cover by warranty and AT&T does not offer insurance for phones. My friend purchased a 8125 along me, hers stopped working after 6 months and was replaced 3 times.... She ended up just settling with a Razr... Yes a Razr!! Just look at the Mogul...

wow well that may be user mandated, ive had htc phones for the past four years now and ive never had a problem with my mogul, however i do work for AT&T and i can understand the old 8125 having those issue that phone was terrible, along with the ppc670 or any other mobile that used wm5 didnt work to good. i had my ppc 6700 replaced 5 times luckily i had sprint and total equipment protection so they just would give me a new phone which was kewl, then after they discontinued the ppc 6700 and mines no longer worked they gave me the mogul for free. but AT&T now offers insurance on ALL devices including the tilt and i rarely have customers who have issues with the tilt as opposed to blackberrys which seem to be always having some type of defect even if the user is correctly using the device. WE LOVE YoU HTC!!!!!!!!!!1
