'Tilt 2' - aka the Touch Pro 2 - seen on leaked AT&T pre-launch sheet (and maybe the Snap)

6

When it comes to the HTC Touch Pro 2, the Verizon folks have been fed. The T-Mobile fans can taste it. And the Sprint survivors should see it any week now. But we've had nary a word from AT&T since we first saw that leaked render of the HTC Fortress.

Well, here's another pretty good sign that AT&T will follow up the Fuze with the Touch Pro 2, though it looks like it'll be going by another name. In this pre-launch lineup purloined by the Boy Genius Report, we clearly see two flavors of the HTC "Tilt 2" — one with camera, and one without.

So there you have it, folks. We had little doubt that AT&T would release the Touch Pro 2 — it's been a longtime fan of the HTC slider devices. BGR also believes that the HTC Pure mentioned here is the Snap, which is a good bet. Now let's get cracking on some release dates and price.

Google Voice on Windows Mobile: 'GVDialer' vs 'iDial'

17

Now that Google Voice invites are going out (click link for demo video), the question of how to make calls on your Windows phone via your GV account arises.

See, the issue is this: you hand out your GV number to everyone, but you then call from your cell phone and your cell number shows up, not your GV number.  For some, it doesn't matter. But for others, they may want to protect their private numbers.

To get around this, you can call Google Voice from one of your designated phones, follow the prompts, enter your passcode then the number you want to dial.  No doubt a hassle when on the go.

The solution?  Since Google has no official WinMo solution (yet), third party companies and individual developers have taken a shot at it and there are at least two very good ones we can recommend here: GVDialer and iDialer by Supware.

Curious as to how they work and brief review of both?  Read on ...

And, finally, renders of AT&T's Touch Pro 2 & Touch Diamond 2

11

Ask and ye shall receive, dear readers. While these are "just" renders and not the in-the-flesh mockups we've seen of the T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon Touch Pro 2s, what we've got here are renders of what supposedly will be coming to AT&T, courtesy of Engadget.

The purloined spec slides are after the break, but everything's about what we've been told, save for launch dates, of course. And we'd expect the home buttons you see on here on the Touch Pro 2 (Fuze 2?) and Touch Diamond 2 to most likely be replaced by the Windows flag button. Also interesting is that AT&T finally may be going with the Diamond line after passing on the original iteration.

And in case there were any confusion that HTC phones get coolest code names out there, the Touch Pro 2's been dubbed the Fortress, and the TD2's the Warhawk.

The headline and picture just about say it all here. It appears the Samsung Omnia II, apparently slated for Verizon, should be at Best Buy on or about Aug. 23. [via BGR] No word on pricing, or when the Omnia II would be available through other outlets.

We're gonna be rabble rousers here for a second, Verizon fans: Omnia II, or HTC Whitestone/Diamond 2? Vote in the poll below, and leave your reasoning in the comments.

Verizon Diamond 2, HTC Mega and more Tachi

30

Well look what dropped in our mailbox.  Some images and deets on the upcoming Verizon Diamond 2 (aka 'Whitestone' aka XV6975), the HTC Mega and a bit of an update to the Tachi image.

First up is the Verizon Diamond 2/Whitestone device, picture above. We're hearing a Sept/October release window is the goal for Big Red.  The specs will be as follow:

  • WM6.1 (no WM6.5 on launch?)
  • Qualcomm 7600 @ 528MHz
  • 512MB ROM/256MB RAM
  • 3.6-inch WVGA touchscreen
  • 5-megapixel autofocus camera/Anti-handshaking
  • gpsOne (aGPS and full GPS)
  • GSM/CDMA World phone

We have to say that although the body of the Diamond 2 here looks a bit ... different ... those are some killer specs for a non-keyboard device. Kudos to you, Verizon, with this and the Ozone.

Check out the Mega and Tachi after the break ...

WinMo 6.5 getting even more finger-friendly?

25

Sure, we're not expecting to see Windows Mobile 6.5 officialy on devices for another month or two, but builds of the latest OS have been a dime a dozen for weeks now. And one trend that has emerged of late is a greater move toward being more finger-friendly. That's evident here in Build 23022, as seen at XDA Developers. [via pocketnow]

Whether this actually ends up on production devices? Well, time will tell. But it's good to see things heading the direction they are. What do you folks think?

Sprint Touch Pro 2 Specs Surface

Sprint Touch Pro 2 Specs Surface

While the earlier report that the Sprint Touch Pro 2 would hit the shelves in mid-June was blown out of the water (we did say "may" drop in mid-June), specifications for the phone has surfaced over at Sprint's developer site. Not that the speculation Sprint was getting the Touch Pro 2 needed more credence the specifications gives it more of an "official" feel that the HTC Windows Mobile phone is headed to Sprint. We just don't know when.

Not much stands out with these specifications that we didn't already know. The Sprint TP2 will apparently launch with Windows Mobile 6.1. Then again, if this drags on much longer Windows Mobile 6.5 might come into play. Thanks goes to Terry Owen for sending us this tip via our contact form

T-Mobile reports Q2 earnings

T-Mobile released its second-quarter report today. The bullet points:

  • Added 325,000 new customers, down from 415,000 in Q1 and nearly half as many as in Q2 2008.
  • Churn was 2.2 percent, down from 2.3 percent in Q1 2009 but 1.9 percent higher than Q2 2008.
  • $1.60 billion in income, up from $1.38 billion in Q1 2009 and $1.58 billion in Q2 2008. The increase is from reduced operating costs.

Steve Ballmer to give keynote at CES 2010

7

Sign us up. The first keynote speakers for the 2010 CES show in Las Vegas have been announced, and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is on top of the list, scheduled for Jan. 6.

He'll presumably trumpet Windows 7, which will have officially been out a little more than two months at that point. But there's also a shot that we'll get some Windows Mobile 7 news, with many of the rumors pointing toward an announcement on that front late this year or early 2010.

Now all we have to do is pay off some markers, get some injunctions lifted and learn to tell the difference between ... erm, never mind. Let's just say the feet should have given it away.

Review: Body Glove Rhythm Horizontal Pouch

Review: Body Glove Rhythm Horizontal Pouch

Body Glove has been one of the major names in water sports for a very long time; they were one of the original manufacturers of wetsuits for people who wanted to enjoy surfing and diving year-round. Their transition in recent years into technology accessories has been relatively flawless, incorporating their essence (style and protective functionality) into their cases. I have owned Body Glove cases for several of my phones (and loved them), so when I got the opportunity to review the Body Glove Rhythm horizontal pouch, I jumped at the chance.
