Verizon’s On A Roll – HTC Touch Pro Debuts

Man, it doesn’t look like there’s an end in sight for Verizon’s launch lineup this holiday season. With the Storm flying off the shelves and Web sites, Verizon’s looking to offer another option if you’re not in the mood to wait until Dec.15 for your Storm. Say hello to the HTC Touch Pro.

It’s pretty much the same thing we’ve seen from Sprint, but with a slightly modified price tag (aka more expensive). Verizon’s Touch Pro will run you roughly $350 with a two-year contract and around $420 for one year. That’s with mail-in rebates of course. You contract-free rebels who enjoy life with no strings attached are going to have to shell out about $540 for the full retail version.

Looking through the comments on BoyGeniusReport, it looks like Verizon may have cut a few corners, although that could just be Internet forum chatter. I guess we won’t know until people start getting this in their hands. If you’re interested in being one of the guinea pigs early adopters, you can get the Touch Pro from its new home on the Verizon site. Those of you wanting to get some hands-on action are going to have to wait until Dec. 1 before they start popping up in stores.
