No Touch Pro2 for you says U.S. Cellular to subscribers?
Dr. Gregory House tells us that, "Everybody lies". According to an anonymous tipster, the CEO of U.S. Cellular is saying that rebate sheets lie. Despite what we reported about the carrier getting the HTC Touch Pro2 back in April, the carrier's executive is telling us that the sizzling hot Windows Mobile device will not be released by U.S. Cellular and any report saying otherwise is a big mistake.

The carrier is planning on adding a new Samsung phone to its line-up this week, according to the tipster. It looks like the LG Xenon without the QWERTY keyboard and will be offered in lime green and in orange and white. As soon as we hear more about this, we will pass it on to you, of course. No lie.

Thanks anonymous tipster!

I suppose anything is possible, and they could have changed there mind. That said I asked a USC rep a few weeks ago about the release date and she told me they had just received training on the TP2 a few days before. Given that I think this is a bad rumor. Though I hope not. I am very much wanting one when they come out, my partner has the TP and while I like it the larger screen of the TP2 is appealing. Though I wonder if I should wait for 6.5.1 and the inital bugs to get out first.
