Touch Pro 2 for AT&T passes FCC

We've seen renders of the HTC Touch Pro 2 (aka Rhodium aka Fortress) destined for AT&T, and now comes word that it's passed FCC testing.

It's got all the goodies we've come to know of the Touch pro 2, including the 3.6-inch touchscreen at 480x800, Windows Mobile 6.1, aGPS, WiFi b/g, a 3.2MP camera, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR. The standard AT&T 3G bands (850MHz and 1900MHz) are, of course, present.

Now all we need are some leaked shots, release date and pricing. A slew of FCC information won't be unsealed until the end of September, so we might not see the Touch Pro 2 on AT&T until October at the earliest. But that's rampant speculation on our part, and stranger things have happened.

  • Now if only I hadn't dropped the cash on a Touch Pro...
  • Why release in October with 6.1?
  • Sux that sprint is fledgling behind With the Touch pro...
  • Sprint is supposed to get the Sprint in june or july they are not lagging behind with the Touch Pro.. Looks likie a cool phone. Looking to get a new phone in the coming months and looking hard at this one.
  • HTC has said TP2 will get WinMo 6.5 upgrade...
  • I can't wait. I need a true successor to my Tilt.
  • It is because AT&T sucks like hell ...
  • Umm. how come t-mobile, verizon, and sprint are all slated to get the Touch Pro 2 in the July time frame while AT&T would be stuck with an October release date?
  • Hopefully this means an unlocked 850/1900 will be released much sooner :-) I want one!
  • But will it get Windows Mobile 7? :-/
  • Interesting, from FCC images it seems this US version has MSM7201A, but the ones sold in the EU right now have MSM7200A.
  • It is my destiny to have this phone. My upgrade availability date for AT&T? October 3.
  • In my opinion there is no way that Sprint or Verizon will get the Touch Pro2 this summer. Their FCC docs show confidentiality until Halloween, and typically there is a reason for that (Touch Pro didn't release on Sprint until the day confidentiality expired). Also, don't forget, the first leaked image of the Verizon XV6800 came on 2/9/07, and the device wasn't released until the end of November 2007. The time between Sprint Mogul photo leak and release was about the same.
  • I can wait for this phone. My fuze kicks the cr@p out of everything out there but when the TP2 is released i will be in geek Nirvana! Thanks a ton for the heads up.
  • I can't wait. I need a true successor to my Tilt .
