Verizon HTC Touch Pro2 lands for $199.99

Verizon has become the third US carrier to offer the HTC Touch Pro2, with the slide-out QWERTY Windows Mobile smartphone priced at $199.99 following a mail-in $100 rebate.  That means it neatly undercuts the Sprint and T-Mobile versions, though still offers the same jam-packed spec sheet.

Said spec-sheet includes a 3.6-inch WVGA touchscreen, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR with A2DP stereo support and both EVDO Rev.A and 2100MHz HSDPA cellular data for global use.  There's also HTC's nifty dual-microphone speakerphone, a 3.5mm headphones jack and a microSD card slot to augment the 512MB ROM.

GPS and a chunky battery capable of up to 5.3hrs of CDMA talktime or 13.5 days of standby round out the major specs.  The Verizon HTC Touch Pro2 will go on sale from this Friday, priced at $199.99 following a $100 rebate and assuming you're willing to sign two years of your life away on a voice+email or email data plan.
