HTC 7 Pro

I remember not to long ago I was jonesing about the HTC Touch Pro2. Didn't take but a short 2 years later the options are endless. The HTC Incredible is just that...incredible! ("HTC Droid Incredible takes pole position as Verizon's top smartphone and is now the Android device to beat.")

Rumors are still out there that Verizon is due up for the iPhone in a few more months.

In steps the HTC 7 Pro. My next phone. The Pro 7 will feature a full QWERTY keyboard for messaging and e-mail. Up top is a 3.6-inch touch screen with a 800x480 resolution. Check out these pics.

Sprint is expected to release it first on the CDMA network and perhaps Verizon will put it into production later next the year.
