Tired of hearing about the Touch Pro? Hold on a little bit longer as the Verizon Touch Pro rumor mill is just starting to heat up. Earlier today, Engadget leaked a tentative launch date of November 24th for online/B2B/telesales and December 1st for retail stores. Soon thereafter, we got our hands on a Need to Know Guide that covers the ins and outs of using the Verizon Wireless Touch Pro. We picked out the highlights for you and we can finally put that whole “Verizon completely neutered the Touch Pro” rumor to rest. The document confirms that XV6850 will ship with a Qualcomm 7500A processor clocked at 528MHz, not the rumored 400MHz CPU. It also lists the 512MB of ROM and 192MB of RAM, which we realize is less than the 512MB/288MB on Sprint and AT&T. Why the difference? We are not too sure, maybe Verizon is reporting the available RAM and not the installed RAM. Regardless, it is nice to see the faster processor and 192MB of RAM which is way better than the rumored 400MHz and 128MB RAM device we were afraid Verizon was going to foist on its customers. The rest of the document has some nice eye candy of Verizon’s very red interface and a quick shot of the XV6850’s very different keyboard layout. Hit the jump for some more pages from the guide.
