When we first caught wind of Sprint’s HTC Touch Pro2 pricing, we had to do a triple-take. As we just confirmed with eCare however, Sprint is wisely bringing the ridiculous $349 price of the HTC Touch Pro2 down to $199.99 (after MIR) starting October 1st. With the BlackBerry Tour, upcoming HTC Hero and — most importantly — Verizon’s Pro2 coming in at $199, this move was absolutely necessary. The price drop isn’t just good news for Sprint customers though — it would be unbelievably silly of T-Mobile to maintain its $350 price after Sprint takes the leap and joins VZW at the $200 price point, and AT&T’s should come in at $200 as well. Oh, and there’s some good news for Sprint’s early adopters as well: Some Sprint customers who purchased the device within the last 30 days are also reporting that calling telesales and chatting with eCare online may score you a $100 credit.
Thanks, Roger A!
