The Rhodium Party!

I think it’s safe to say now that HTC Touch Pro 2 (a.k.a. Rhodium) is one of the most celebrated windows mobile phone ever.  Major carriers across the globe have been playing hide and seek in releasing the info for the device, but for sure HTC has confirmed that the Rhodium will be available pretty much everywhere including the North American market.

We also know that pretty much all of the major US carriers will also carry the device.   I have compiled a list of most commonly asked questions regarding the difference on the model that will be carried by US carriers in this table:


There is however another fact that’s worth to be mentioned.  We know that US T-mobile utilizes the 1700Mhz and 2100Mhz band for their 3G network.  Further research in Wikipedia will tell you that you can’t just import the European/Asian Touch Pro 2, which also carries the 2100 3G band, in hope to use T-mobile’s 3G network.  If you want to use T-mobile’s 3G you still need a Touch Pro 2 that has the 1700 and 2100 band (UMTS band IV a.k.a. AWS) instead of the EU/Asia version that utilizes UMTS band I for their 3G network.  They are on a slightly different frequencies even though they are categorized both on 2100Mhz.

So with these rumors in hand, which Rhodium will you be getting at when it’s released?
