HTC is not only working on dominating the GSM side of the smartphone equation, because it has now been announced that Sprint is picking up the HTC Touch Pro as well. This follows in the footsteps of fellow CDMA operator Verizon, but unlike the “slightly gimped” version that is heading to the red checkmark, Sprint’s take on the HTC Touch Pro is fully equipped and “deliciously un-gimped.”
The sliding QWERTY keyboard-equipped HTC Touch Pro joins the HTC Touch Diamond among Sprint’s fold, just in time for hte holiday season. As you know, key features on the HTC Touch Pro include Windows Mobile 6.1, TouchFLO 3D user interface, a customized web browser for all your Interwebby needs, a 2.8-inch VGA touchscreen, Wi-Fi, YouTube compatibility, and microSD expansion.
The HTC Touch Diamond ships with Sprint for $250 with contract and rebate this month. The HTC Touch Pro ships on October 19th for $300 with a two-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate.
