Another phone I will not be able to add to my family plan.
Best of luck getting this...
With prices like these....
its gonna be hard to put up 450 for the Touch Pro 2. Im not saying that I wont put the money. Itll just be a lot harder. I am seriously gonna check out the pre adn android phones....they are a lot cheaper. Othe
For the first time
I was REALLY hoping that this would be a duel announcement like with the Tour.. I would snap this phone up in a heartbeat.
Ah well. I guess I'm getting the Tour unless HTC announces a Verizon Android phone.
No way in hell I'm getting a LOLMotorola
did anyone notice
that it looks alot more rounded like the mytouch...its not as rectangular and agressive as the euro model looks unless the pic is wrong...
I was thinking the exact same thing my friend...
I've been running Hero on my G1 for a while and with it heavily optimized it still is slow. IMO the Rachael or the Galaxy lite is were its going to be at.
It makes some good points about the Qualcomm 528MH...
