The price? $349.99, after a $70 rebate and the signing of a 2-yr agreement. A bit too much, I guess, considering the fact that Alltel is selling the Touch Pro for only $279.99 while AT&T offers it as HTC Fuze for $299.99.
You’d expect the Verizon HTC Touch Pro to have some extra features to compensate for the higher price, but from its description it doesn’t look like it has any.
So you’ll get the same Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional device with a VGA touchscreen display, GPS, Wi-Fi, full QWERTY keyboard, 3.2MP camera and so on. Plus, of course, some Verizon-only applications, like VZ Navigator and VZAppZone.
If the Touch Pro ain’t your thing, maybe Samsung Omnia is. And since this was already seen in Verizon’s stores, it should be launched pretty soon too, most probably for a price lower than the one of HTC’s WinMo handset.
