Clearest photo yet… dare to dream?

[singlepic=46,400,300]

We know there are plenty of you who just can’t get enough of the Touch Pro2, and now we have an image that showcases it very clearly with great lighting. The closer we get to August 12, the more pictures we’re sure will be flooding our inbox, but this should help you get your fix for now (if the others weren’t enough)! There’s even a picture with the stylus partly out of the phone for any of you interested in seeing that sort of thing. Speaking of the stylus, those of you who may have been worried will be glad to hear that it’s not just going to be falling out of the phone with any little nudge it gets. According to an anonymous tipster speaking of the stylus, “You need something to catch the end of the stylus to pull it out such as a finger nail or a lot of finger pressure on it. Can’t be knocked out accidentally.”

Other impressions from our anonymous tipster follow…

  • From Power on to Home Screen: 55 seconds
  • From Home Screen to Power Off: 8 seconds
  • Camera is amazing for being on a cell phone and only being a 3mp camera. Beats the hell out of the G1 camera.
  • The build and feel of the phone is quality. Heavier than the G1
  • Slide is very tight and feels extremely durable. Needs a little pressure on it to slide. When closed, it feels like a bar style touch screen phone. Very solid phone.
  • Loudspeaker is good. The auto speaker phone when you place the phone face down on a table + the mute button is a really neat feature.
  • And now for the bad:

  • The in call quality was what disappointed me the most on the phone, the earphone speaker. People hear me fine but the quality of audio coming from the phone didnt impress me much.
  • I suppose with that comment, we can all hope that individual results will vary (leaning on the good side) or that it at least isn’t THAT bad. No word on what type of audio was being referred to, such as it being muffled or garbled. We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything else.

      FIRST….LOL….This phone looks better and better every time I see it. I am getting it on day 1.

    • Big S

      I will admit it now that I have seen these last few pics. The Tp2 is very nice looking….At first I thought T-mobile was stupid for changing the color of the phone, boy did i change my mined….The only thing i can say is well done T-mobile well done.

    • Galen20K

      It looks AWSOME!!! Finally out of the Dingy lighting we can TRULY see how nice it looks!

      Man that thing is sexy, kinda reminds me of my tablet…

    • Webbie

      Man, I want this phone so bad!!!! It is very sexy

    • ANTHONY IN UTAH

      This phone looks bulky… but what can I expect with its slide out keypad. I can’t complain… I ordered an iPhone unlocked for tmobile so we’ll see how much I like it with no keypad when I get it tomorrow… otherwise this is my option. Tmobile only gets a select handful of high quality phones….specifically the ones made by HTC. Go Tmobile!!

    • jDouble

      its funny how many people want this phone, i’ve played with it and yes it is bangin, but what you dont see is that the phone is bestly heavy, i mean its like carrying a dam phonebook(little book) its big and long kinda like carrying a brick a carrying case w/clip is MANDATtory, i mean wow i picked it up and compared to the mytouch and g1 it weighs the same as both of them together.

    • mark

      1. Where are the Jen videos? Those showed the clearest pics of the TP2 out all posted so far.
      2. Wish they has left the magnetic stylus option. We all remember the horror of the MDA and the physical catch!
      3. Call quality???? I always use a BT headset. My MDA running XDA2 WM6.5 has call quality issues when using the phone mic. With BT headset, it’s fine. Too bad T-Mobile is releasing a high end Smartphone/PPC with bad call quality. LOL!!!!!

    • Alex

      I would prefer this a hundred times better than the mythouch no hero man what the hell

    • Timmy

      will they have proximty sensor on the phone just like the unlocked version?

    • j-0v

      We had our training for the phone today all I can say is wow. It works just like you think it will! What a concept!!

    • Ran

      55 seconds from turn-on to home page? Doesn’t that seem a bit wack?

    • Kumar

      So Engadget is reporting the Verizon (and Telus) TP2 will have a 3.5 audio jack.

      Will this hurt Tmob if everyone else has a jack? I’d say if it had rolled out next week (as we know it won’t now)it wouldn’t be a problem, but it may end up costing Tmob if the other carriers come out in the next 3 weeks announcing their TP2’s will have 3.5 jacks too.

      Thoughts? Importance of that jack for those that would like to use their own headphones sans an adapter?

      This will hold you down until aug.12

    • dee_shock

      To bad we couldn’t get this color but it’s okay.

    • Surg N

      yes, even if the others only “announce” their phones with 3.5mm jack and not even release them in the next 3 weeks, it will hurt t-mobile… but if T-mobile were to come out today or monday and announce its release and release it in July, it will buy tmobile extra weeks of publicity and customers showing off their phone.

      I hear people in the operating room all the time talking about how they are buying the iphone. Same thing. I try to talk to people about this phone, but I am not convincing 1. I don’t have the phone, and 2. I don’t even know when it is coming out. 3. my carrier (t mobile) hasn’t even officially recognized that such a phone exists.

      bottom line, Time is hurting tmobile… even at this very minute.

      agree?

    • Rhage

      Any “relatively” confirmed word on pricing?

    • AMARETTO79

      PRICING PRICING!! PLEASE!! HOW MUCH T-MOBILE!! HOW MUCH!!

    • http://twitter.com/crucey laafiera

      Why is it that none of theses pictures show the 3G icon connection????…..

      Tmonews… nice pic but now bring me pre-order dates and pricing pleases!!!!

    • Duck Dodgers

      That is the international version of the TP2 not the TMo version.

    • d2

      I just noticed it is a resistive touchscreen, not capacitive. That’s too bad, I might go for for another model, very disappointing

    • AMARETTO79

      HOLY SMOKES!!! ON EBAY WON’T GO FOR LESS THAN 800 ,700,600 I FOUND A GUY SELLING IT FOR 400 BUT YEAH TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT WAS A SCAM PAY PAL HAD TO REFUND ME THE 400 BUCKS.

    • docprego

      In the third picture if you look closely a screen protector can be seen over the phone. Actually it is the bubbling of the protector near the ear piece and around the upper right edge of the screen that makes it visible. That answers whether or not this phone comes with a screen protector pre-installed or not. Now let’s hope they include an extra in the box like they usually do.

      Dear T-Mobile: I’ve been a loyal customer for, like, 6 years, and you’re *this close* to losing me because of your poor handset decision-making. This phone looks and, by all accounts, feels, like a toy. PLEASE market the a T-Mobile-supporting version of the HTC Hero in the US.

      After using my unlocked iPhone for a year and a half, I’ll be goddamned if I’m ever going back to a lazyphone ever again. It’s time to dumpster all those non-Android Samsungs and Motorolas. All of them. They are crap product and just because 80% of your customers don’t realize that they are being completely ripped off doesn’t mean the smart business decision is to keep selling them. They don’t cost less to produce as their hardware is nearly identical to that of more expensive phones.

      You need to get me a second-generation Android Smartphone with HSDPA, stat, or I’m outta here. And it better have a 1/8″ headphone jack. And if you throw in a physical keyboard, I’ll buy it even if the on-contract price is 300 bucks.

      Thanks.

      Ugh, it’s so ugly!!!!!!! Where is my chrome and straight talk and front facing VGA camera?!?! :(. Why must t mobile mutilate every good device they are given to sell. All in favor of the unlocked edition, please stand up.

    • MobileBenz

      Will the TMO version get the 3.5mm jack? It seems HTC will be modding the device for Telus.

    • Surg N

      I was one of the people really liking the chrome as well, but I must finally say that this phone is looking ok… I won’t complain about that anymore, it actually looks like my notebook.

      I just want it soon. $214 would be sweet, but I am not counting on it. $299 is reasonable I guess. If more, I will have a debate on whether to get it. Money doesn’t grow on trees.

      Even Aug. 12… Just announce it already.. PLEASE!!!
      I have to get a device like now. Please announce it before I have to get a similar device somewhere else. Am I alone on this?

    • Chere

      Any cool software features?
      Will iphone apps work?

    • Mike

      Sure would like to play with one. My MDA died last week now I’m down to a cheap $20 Nokia to hold me over until I can get something new. The Android platform is really temping but I haven’t had any playtime with the either.

    • dee_shock

      To all the tp2 lovers check this out.

    • BruceWayne

      The video has its funny and corny moments. It looks like that the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 will get a pretty low-key premiere. I’m thinking.. If August 12 is the release date, its already late July. Meanwhile, MyTouch3G still says coming soon on their website and its been that way for awhile now. T-Mobile’s website still doesn’t mention Touch Pro 2 in any way. So, either its getting a really low-key debut with only just the Twitter message, or there’s no date in stone yet.

    • Matthew

      Is this going to have visual voice mail or UMA???

    • Peteo

      Could it be that one of the reasons that Tmobile is waiting for the release of the TP 2 is that it is getting it with the head jack too? Looks like Austrailia is now getting theirs with one and mention is made that the early Europe releases are the only ones without. http://wmpoweruser.com/?p=5976

    • jreid

      i really want this phone. i hear a lot of great things about the unlocked version. Especially the snappy performance.i would be highly upset if tmobile mess that up with their add on software.

    • Jayson

      The only question I would have about getting it is will T-Mobile push out an upgrade to WinMo 6.5? Even if they don’t, I will still probably get this phone.
