Verizon Wireless is joining the HTC Touch Pro party. The carrier launched the phone today and is selling it for $350 with a two-year service contract and after a $70 mail-in rebate.
Sprint Nextel launched the HTC Touch Pro last month and AT&T Mobility launched a very similar phone, which it calls the HTC Fuze, shortly afterward. Sprint Nextel is selling the phone for $299 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate, and AT&T Mobility is selling the Fuze for $299 after mail-in rebates and a two-year contract. Alltel is selling the phone for $280 to new subscribers with a contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate.
T-Mobile USA is unlikely to join the other carriers in launching the phone, as its premier handset, the G1, is similar in style and function to the Touch Pro, which uses a TouchFLO 3D user interface and has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
