The joy of windows mobile isnt the OS, its the fact that it may as well me an open format because you can hack it and put whatever you want on it... Bash WM all you want but its so easy to completly customize it and No verizon cant do anything to stop it. And for that matter you can hack just about any phone regardless. For a short time(untime verizon had an update) i was enjoying free internet on my EnVy :o)

Pricing for verizon on an upgrade probably $450 with no MIR plus a $30 required data plan rip off anyone?

What an amazing video...not. At least we all know the Touch Pro is gonna be good regardless. Hopefully Verizon doesn't "unbrand" it like they did with the Mogul and Touch.

does the name of the device really make a difference...if they call it the touch pro or the vx9850 is that going to stop someone from purchasing it? i highly doubt it. keep your mouths shut all you people seem to do is complain over trivial aspects.

the above comment is crazy, no matter if you call it a touch pro or xv6900, its the same thing. and HTC just started naming the devices after themselve. In the past the HTC brand was not looked at as superior when it came to their devices and was rebranded for such so cust would not look down on the device. so part has to do w/ the manufacturer

Name of a device has a great deal whether people will consider looking at the phone or not. If you have a catchy name or something that sounds intriguing, people will be more inclined to at least looking at it before making up their minds. Plus, people remember names of devices with a specific name, not a model number. It's all marketing dude.

with current pricing on advanced devices, i'd guess 200-300 with two year. i havent seen nor heard anything in the equipment guide so far so my guess is late november to mid december for release. im sure it will be out in plenty of time for christmas tho.

hey idiot I know its the cool thing on here to say "oh man verizon cripples all phone man...." no they dont its window... Idiot! Does Dell cripple a PC with windows? How about HP? Sony? No because its the software Microsoft makes. ANY and let me make this clear ANY phone that doesnt have the verizon interface (ie the dumb phones not smart phones) isnt crippled. Hardware maybe but not the software. The blackberry curve is virtually the same not matter if its on verizon, tmobile or att. The same with the windows mobile phones.

lots of sour haters on here huh? sad because mommy has no credit and your stuck with a unlocked lame pda with a lamer provider? verizon seems to be getting all the hottest phones, the Voyager, Dare, Krave, envy2, Sway....now they are getting all the best PDAs as well, Storm, Omnia, Raphael, Touch HD, Pro..... rules to be a VZW customer right now. Best phones, biggest network, best coverage and data connectivity. Plus every PDA and Handset phone VZW sells can EASILY be hacked and get free apps, ringtones , wall papers....you people in here who are crying about the UI and the RAM dont know anything about how to open up a phone so shut your geeky little pie holes and go back to World of Warcraft.

#18, you have no idea what you're talking about. Verizon gets all the "hot" dumbphones, and then cripples their smartphones. And really, they're going to get the non-US Touch HD? Are they going to port it over from all the overseas CDMA carriers? Oh... wait... The Raphael and the Touch Pro are the same phone, as #19 said, too. Any Windows Mobile or PDA-like device can be easily hacked... except it's not called being hacked... it's called installing software. You don't have to "hack" a device that will let you install free apps, ringtones, and wallpapers without any modification at all. And you can't do that on a dumbphone, thanks to Brew. Yeah, it's a great time to be on VZW. God knows I love paying out my ass in data fees and additional fees, on top of ridiculously priced plans. How's that Wi-Fi working out for you? Oh, wait... you don't have Wi-Fi? Verizon crippled it, and gave you 1/3 of the RAM on your phone? Ouch. Plus, it doesn't matter how great your network is, when if you are on a certain other carrier, you can simply set your phone to "Roam Only" and just use all your VZW data and network for free. Ha! And last time I checked, RAM was probably the most important thing in a PDA. You can always add a Micro-SD card for more memory, but you can't add for more RAM. Hence all the problems with the HTC Mogul/VX8600. I hope you can manage to run more than 1 program at once when you get stuck with almost no RAM.

Ok, how does verizon cripple smartphones? Everyone says this yet no one says how they do it? What is different than a windows mobile phone for vzw than at&t? or even the blackberry or the palm phones? Can someone answer this very simple straightforward question for me cause I really want to know what the hell you're talking about. And please don't say wifi, cause people verizon doesn't manufactor the phones so don't give some dumb ass answer like that not to mention 2 of the new samsung phones and the pro will all have wifi. So if you answer, don't be a dumbass.
