HTC Touch Pro 2 likely headed to T-Mobile first

T-Mobile USA is likely to be the first carrier to launch the HTC Touch Pro 2 in the United States, according to documents filed with the FCC.

The filings show that the smartphone has been tested in the 1700 MHz AWS band, which is the 3G band T-Mobile uses. It is widely speculated that the phone, like its predecessor, the Touch Pro, also eventually will find its way to Sprint Nextel and Verizon Wireless.

Neither HTC nor T-Mobile have made any official announcements about the phone, although HTC confirmed in February that the phone would be available in North America. 

The Touch Pro 2 has a 3.6-inch WVGA TouchFLO 3D display, a tilt-capable screen and a full keyboard. The phone also supports a new feature from HTC called Straight Talk, which allows users to set up a multi-party conference call by accessing contact information in the user's email inbox. The phone also sports dual microphones and speakers and doubles as a conference bridge when flipped over.
