Touch Pro 2 & U.S. Cellular: Getting Ready to Launch

Anyone remember how U.S. Cellular is suppose to get the famed Touch Pro 2?  And anyone remember how we told you that they'd be the first CDMA carrier to launch it with WM6.5?

We bet U.S. Cellular customers do.

Good news is it seems like that carrier is gearing up for launch days as an information/specifications page has shown up via backdoor access. And yeah, Windows Mobile 6.5 is on board, so the wait was probably worth it.  And do we spot Manilla 2.5 with those colorful icons too?  Hmmm...

Possible bad news? No confirmation on a 3.5mm headset jack but we do see it includes a Multifunction audio cable, which doesn't bode well.

thanks bassgeek!

  • Will this be "Sold Out" in a few days like Verizon and AT&T? If not, and Verizon doesn't get and maintain an inventory, will it work on the Verizon network? Perhaps an unlock option.
  • Seems like the Snap page is up too

  • I think i'll wait for Sprint to update theirs with 6.5. Hopefully it will be soon.
  • A CDMA TP2 without 3.5mm jack? Hmm, maybe HTC charges more for that jack and US Cellular chose the cheaper proprietary port...
  • thats not manila 2.5!! that is manila 2.1 with updated icons
  • Exactly. Assuming it's 2.5 (without having a pic of the homescreen) because of some colorful icons is a huge leap in logic. Those can be updated with a single cab install. It is odd though that they don't mention TF3D but say "HTC Sense navigation".
  • On the official WM6.5 upgrade from HTC for the TP2, even though it's still Manila 2.1, they've gone to colour icons, added the weather icon on the Home Tab, and called it "HTC Sense" (instead of TouchFLO 3D).
  • Had this rom for months haha, has a lot of good features for a stock rom.

  • I want this phone soo bad. So does it have menilla 2.5, if it does I'm gonna be even more excited. O yea if anyone finds out the release date and pricing for this particular phone with the us cellular network please let me know... Thanks everyone and thanks wmexperts.com :) :) :)
  • Hello, I live in Chicago, and in the store I went in, they are looking to have inventory right b4 the end of the month... Not sure where u are and if that helped...
  • This is good a product. http://www.phone2-u.com/2009/10/blackberry-tour-9630-come-to-us.html
  • I never have figured out why USCC dosen't listen to its customers [who want high-end business phones, and who can afford the price] and give us what we want in a phone. If I were in the business, I'd ask my customers what they want in a business phone-- complile the best features into a list, then go to a company like HTC or RIM and say, "Hey, can you build us a phone like this?" Heck, all they do is say "No!" or price it too high, ...but what not at least try and give the customers what they want...geesh, while I'm happy that the Pro 2 is soon to be available, not only did USCC drag in in last place as far as releasing the Pro 2, it looks like they can't even manage a simple 3.5mm audio jack or the Manilla 2.5 upgrade.
  • Look at the page again, they've changed the image, isn't that Manila 2.5? Excuse my possible ignorance, but I thought one of the new things was weather displayed on the homepage?
  • There will be a 3.5mm jack! so shut up about it not having one.. The back will look like the Sprint Touch Pro2 but with blue!
  • How do you know that it will have a 3.5mm headphone jack and that it will look like sprints version but in blue????
  • He knows it has a 3.5mm jack because he wears an aluminum foil hat made from the foil of a used Jiffy pop popcorn pan that picks up comic signals from space aliens...and that its gotta blue back cuz he looked at a picture of it on another web site that just released it.....
  • Now, on a more serious note... if you want to read about USCC's Touch Pro 2 specifications... go to the following link to read its OWNERS MANUAL... that should clear up a lot of the crap that's being spread around like fertilizer.

  • In a hypothetical demeanor I deliberate the indication in which the US Cellular version of this wireless device will most unmistakably NOT be administrating the " manila 2.5 " software due to the manifestation being to no degree or being to the inadequacy of testimonial photomicrography broadcasted encompasing The World Wide Web thus symbolizing my distinct theme in which I convene to in this interjection...
  • Or in a more fundimental manner.... Yo it won't have manila 2.5 due to the lack of evidence provided to us customers through out The World Wide Web... -_-
  • Set to release November 11 or November 21
  • Just spoke with a US Cellular rep at a retail store in Chicago. HTC Touch Pro 2 will launch within 2 weeks.
  • As today 11/20 I just ordered it and should get it within a 3 days!
  • 3 days? I just called my local store this morning and they unloaded a shipment of these phones off the truck this morning already. They allowed me to reserve one (for up to 24 hours) and I'll have it in my hands in about 3 hours!
  • I got mine this morning, 3.5mm headphone jack, winmo6.5, gps unlcoked, and completely awesome.
  • I said 3 days cause of weekend, otherwise the next day baby. Anyway, I got it! Awesome phone, very high quality, good performance and amazing speaker!
