Telus Pro2 gets audio jack
With the near launch of the HTC Touch Pro2 by Canadian wireless provider Telus, an earlier report of the handset manufacturer switching to 3.5mm audio jacks on its phones has been confirmed to be taking place early. The Canadian provider's version of the Touch Pro2 will be the first of a series of HTC phones making the switch, though Telus doesn't highlight this fact on its page for the handset. HTC ships the device with a 3.5mm headset with earbuds as well.
Otherwise, the Windows Mobile 6.1 phone sports a 3.6-inch tilting and laterally sliding touchscreen that reveals a five-row QWERTY keyboard with large keys. The device touts better audio quality than usual with dual microphones and dual speakers with a noise-cancelling capability for better hands-free operation. The built-in 3.2-megapixel camera captures both still shots and videos.
While Telus' pricing for the HTC Touch Pro2 is still unknown, it should launch sometime this month, in step with earlier details. [via MobileSyrup]
