Touch Pro2 gets August 12th launch on T-Mobile and is XV6875 for Verizon?
There is so much to like about the HTC Touch Pro2, from the offset physical QWERTY to the 3.6 inch screen, the newly added 3.5mm audio jack and the latest version of TouchFLO 3D to mention just a few. It looks like T-Mobile will be offering the device starting August 12th. This is the date stated on what appears to be a leaked shot of an internal document from the carrier. The Touch Pro2 will replace the T-Mobile Wing in the lineup and no pricing details were mentioned.

We have already showed off pictures of a Touch Pro2 wearing Verizon colors. Today came word that the Global Certification Forum had approved XV6975 for an unnamed HTC smartphone. The XV prefix is usually the manufacturer's designation for Verizon, although the phone had very un-Verizon support for quadband GSM and single band support at 2100MHz for UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA. It could be a "world phone" for Big Red and early conjecture was that this model was the HTC Touch Pro2. By the time the sun went down in the east, it was speculated that the XV6975 was actually the HTC Touch Diamond2 and that Verizon's Touch Pro2 would be model XV6875. No launch date or pricing for either model was printed.
