HTC add 3.5mm jack to CDMA HTC Touch Pro2 for Telus

While we deemed the HTC Touch Pro2's hardware keyboard perhaps the best to be had on a Windows Mobile smartphone right now, we saved the usual ire for the handset's lack of a 3.5mm headphones socket.  That's all changed, however, for the Canadian Telus version; going by MobileSyrup's video, HTC have shuffled over the ExtUSB port and squeezed in a 3.5mm jack.
