CNET have already had the chance to review the device and have given it an "excellent" 4 star rating, however there were a few things that they didn't like. "The smart phone is heavy and bulky. Onboard memory is slow, and we would have liked an upgraded camera. It's a bit pricey", claims CNET's Bonnie Cha. T-Mobile's specifications do not list the amount of onboard RAM in the device, however CNET have been able to confirm that it comes with 288MB.
The Touch Pro 2 currently retails for $549.99 USD, however it is available for $349.99 thanks an instant discount of $200. It includes a charger, a stereo hands-free headset, USB cable, and a carrying case. You can order one online through T-Mobile's website now, or pick one up in-store.
