Woo! Sprint customers in need of a sexy new smartphone will be happy to learn that the Touch Pro’s limited availability is now a thing of the past. HTC’s beast of a QWERTY slider is officially ripe for the picking and can be snagged from the Sprint site for a cool $299.99 with free shipping and free activation of a new line. Not bad, not bad. It should be noted that $299.99 is the 2-year contract price and includes a $100 mail-in rebate. In order to qualify for the rebate, you must sign up for an Everything plan or slap on a Data Premier add-on or PRO Pack add-on. All good though, you were going to do that anyway. With the Touch Pro coming in at a narrow $50 more than the Touch Diamond, we wonder who would opt for the latter over the former. Would you? Whatever the case, break out that plastic Sprint fans, it’s finally time to scoop up the Pro.

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
