Touch Pro2 Coming to T-mobile?

touchpro2

I’ve been working on this for a few days now, ever since the very same tipster who has been passing this around brought it to my attention via this xda-developer thread. Apparently, a ROM has surfaced and with the above picture as evidence, offers proof that the HTC Touch Pro2 is headed to our beloved magenta. Now I have to ask and wonder if this is a variant of, or a separate device from the Rhodium, AKA Tungsten which we already believe is headed to T-mobile sometime this summer.

The guys over at Pocketnow have kindly explained that the part circled in red, with a focus on “T-MOB010″ is identification for T-mobile and its country code. Also, on the following line, the language is identified as “USA” giving further credence to the theory that this is heading to T-mobile sometime in the future. 

Now, I’m usually one to remain skeptical about things like this, especially since I understand ROM’s about as much as I understand the Large Hadron Collider. That being said, perhaps some of the Wing aficionados familiar with ROM’s and their inner workings would like to take a stab at this xda-developer thread and see if they n make any more sense out of the above picture. 

Head over to AllShadow for a run down on specs for the Touch Pro2.

    it’s about time
    though we don’t know the detailed spec, nor I found anything at FCC, we can expect:
    HTC Rhodium=HTC Tungsten, except
    Rhodium: UMTS band I/II/V
    Tungsten: UMTS band I/IV/VIII
    like nokia 5330
    and it may become the trend of tri-3G, that manufacturers only offer 2 variation, can save cost
    since it also includes band I/VIII, they don’t have to worry the sales, they just import about a few thousands to US for T-Mobile and Stelera

    i will pay for it right now if they let me… i think my wing could self destruct at any second… i need something new already!

  • alt-mobile

    This is exciting but I am reading the XDA thread and there seems to be some differing on whether this is real or not…

    ahh forget it…reading all of that ROM mumbo jumbo is beyond me…I’m going to sleep and dream about a new phone…

  • http://HTC.COM meshech GI

    THE PHONE IS REAL ITS ALREADY UP ON THE HTC SITE THE CAM IS A 3.2MPX IT USES WINDOWS MOBILE 6.1 WHICH IS NOT TOO BAD BUT THERE ARE SOME COOL STUFF ABOUT IT IF IT COMES TO TMOBILE THAT WOULD BE COOL THEY HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT REPLACING THE WING FOR A LONG TIME MAYBE THIS IS IT WELL LETS KEEP OUR FINGERS CROSSED

  • TomCruise

    i am excited, hope this comes fast.

    i was happy with my curve, enjoying how responsive it was compared to my prev winmo phones (though i was missing some features of winmo touchscreen, skyfire etc) when my wife abducted my curve for her use.

    i hv meanwhile bought a cheap used 8525 to get through this phase till something good pops up on tmobile. hoping i dont have to wait long.

  • mfabela

    you see all that T-MO! peeps are getting excited! keep em coming T-MO executives…if you do you might take the number 3 spot sooner rather than later!

  • Andre

    let’s hope they don’t screw it up. a replacement for the wing is so overdue.

    I lost the OK button on mine last week. fell off somehow. the back cover comes off every time I take it out of my pocket. this is ridiculous; I can’t show the little monster to people anymore. it’s about time something serious came up for winmo on t-mo. for the first time.

    oh well, we can only wait.
    I’m still looking for that ok button… the little sucker is probably half way to china by now. :-(

  • Anthony

    WOW Andre sounds like me… my wing has been through heck… losing buttons left and right and the battery cover wont stay on… i’ve dropped this heavy brick so many times that I am in need of a new model, an upgraded model that is… bring it on tmobile haha ;)

  • Buckshot

    I WANT TO BELIEVE!

    (Put me down for two)

  • Bill

    Why is this device not running Android!? It makes me crazy =)

  • B

    PLEASE BE REAL AND PLEASE COME IN MAY (please)

  • Blwebb68

    Now that;s what I’m talking about. Good lookin out Jedi!!!

  • Packtramp

    I really hope this is true!! Please NO Android. They already have one phone that doesn’t work with exchange. We have been waiting since the MDA for an upgrade. Android needs to catch up on a few MAJOR issues before they roll out the next one. I borrowed one for a week or so, it was a great interface but without exchange its a bomb, a large ugly bomb at that. TMO needs a WinMo with 3G, GPS, etc.

  • Matthew

    Yeah, they need a phone that does it all! Could they please include UMA, Hotspot calling. I dont know why it is that we have to pick and choose, why cant there be a phone that has 3G, GPS, and Hotspot calling, like this one maybe!!!

  • J-Hop2o6

    HURRY UP TO MY HANDS!!!!!!!!! =) damn i cant wait lol

  • thaone&only

    Like omg! I hope this really is true!!!! Name a price, and its mine!!

  • phatsaxx

    I really hope this is real I’d get it so fast!! Now all I need is 3g in Cleveland and all will be right with the world!!!

  • SneakerFiend

    This is what I’m waiting for. If the Touch Pro2 doesn’t drop im leaving t-mobile. And i’ve said this so many times before but this is the phone that’ll definetly tie me down unless they get a HSDPA version of the BlackBerry storm BEFORE my contract ends in June.

  • J-Hop2o6

    ^^^ Blackberry Storm over the Touch Pro2?? kill yourslef

  • JTD3

    The question is, if you buy this WinMo phone, can you flash (is this the right term?) the phone to run android instead? Anyone know?

  • RS

    That “Nishanth” indian guy will be in alot of trouble. C:\Users\Nishanth….

  • http://HTC.COM meshech GI

    they need to come out with this phone because i had my MDA and i still rate it better than the G1 and the wing first of all they made the G1 with out a A2DP blutoot adaptor and my old MDA has it so hopefully i get 1 good phone that has every thing i can do with out the 3G network its garbage i dont really need it

  • Galen20K

    I’ve had both the MDA and G1 and I have to say MEshech you are completely Wrong, My G1 is LEAPS AND BOUNDS over my MDA its not even in the same league.

    what are you smoking on?

  • MFtro

    It’s not Android. Whether it’s Tungsten or Rhodium it’s Touch Pro 2, which means it’s WM6 and it’s TouchFlo.

    The best shot for an Android G1 successor is Memphis. It has the chin, it has the trackball…and it’s also got the big screen and a keyboard indicating its potential as a flagship Android device.

    I just want to see some hardware specs on the thing to find out if there’s any meaningful changes to the foundation laid by G1/Magic.

  • tamk3

    i sincerely hope so…i bought the behold (took it back 3 days later); bought the BB curve (took it back next day). my wing is my life but i don’t think it’s going to stand up to my daily use (it’s been dropped and everything) too much longer. i absolutely LOVE this phone so I will be first in line.

  • John

    I’d be interested … IF it ran Android.

  • louis

    Why do we got wait 4 more months for the phone to come out to the public?After all it’s been out since Febuary. Still this phone is fuckking amazing. Can’t decided to buy this or the Touch Diamond 2 or the G2.

  • ralph

    GOODBYE ANDROID – DON’T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU IN THE ASS ON THE WAY OUT…

  • Paul

    OK. Does anyone have any good information on when T-mobile will release the Touch Pro 2 for sale? I’ve heard all kinds of dates flying around, such as late May, July 22, sometime in August and fall of 2009. Does anyone know?

  • Ace

    Best calculated release date according to other phones previous that received their US FCC pass date was between 2 – 3 months. T Mobile just received it on May 1,’09 =)
    Its abOUT tIMe I stILL have my MDA & the other devices haven’t come close to all the capabilities even wiTH GPS.

    HuRRy or I’m gone to SpRinT! need a good laptop phone, not a toy G1

    & watch some professional videos (4:49 on YouTube)on Nvidia Tegra you’ll see whats round the corner for WM that blows away all the competition
    watch the video and honestly tell me you don’t believe that.

  • Taye

    Gotta get this I cant wait, How much is going to cost??? Prices anyone???
