Verizon XV6975 is the HTC Touch Pro 2 (Update: or maybe the Touch Diamond 2)

Yep, we're gonna just come out and say it: The Verizon XV6975 looks to be the HTC Touch Pro 2. Let's connect the dots.

  1. We've seen an early Verizon-branded Touch Pro 2.

  1. Today comes word from the Global Certification Forum [via the:unwired] that Verizon has received approval on the XV6975, and that it's a World phone, as we believed it would be. (You can tell by the 850 and 1900 bands listed above.)
  2. The other day we saw a CelleBrite unit that showed the Touch Pro 2 as 6975. (Here it is again, at right.) At the time it was purported to be from a Sprint store, but whatever. We don't believe in coincidences. Verizon uses CelleBrite as well.

So there you have it. All we need now is a release date and pricing information. You know, the really important stuff.

Update: nJmarc on Twitter and YumYum in our comments is telling us (and Engadget, apparently) that the Touch Pro 2 is the XV6875, and the Touch Diamond 2 is the XV6975. So there you go.
