Confirmed (via Twitter): HTC's Touch HD coming to America
Using just a few tweets on Twitter, HTC has confirmed that its Touch Pro2 is coming to North America.
The news wasn't any great surprise, really, because the press release for the Touch Pro2 did mention something about "global availability." Still, in a series of three tweets, HTC made future availability of the Windows Mobile-based phone on the North American continent definite, although without being specific about when, which carrier, or even which country.
HTC had previously used Twitter to confirm something else. But that time around, it was to say that its Touch HD product would NOT be available in the US.
Now, if HTC would only use Twitter to confirm North American availability of the recently announced Magic smartphone, its Android-based follow-on to the Dream, that might be even more interesting.
Here are the pertinent tweets about the Touch Pro2:
# And to answer the big question on everyone's minds, the Touch Pro2 will be broadly available in all major markets, including North America. 11:07 AM Feb 20th from web.
# All, we have not announced a launch date for the Touch Pro2 in any country yet. But we did announce we will start to roll it out late Q2. 11:14 AM Feb 20th from web.
# Sorry, can't answer questions about specific carriers anywhere in the world. Please talk to them about if or when they'll carry something. 11:30 AM Feb 20th from web.
