We absolutely love it when stuff like this happens, the FCC do it -- well we might add -- and now it appears Best Buy wants in on the game at Telus's expense. While it comes as no surprise that Telus is snapping up the HTC Touch Pro, we honestly weren't thinking they'd have the Touch Dual on their

That CDMA version of HTC's Touch Dual that some FCC lab got to fiddle around with a while back is now packaged up all nice and pretty for cash-flush consumers to enjoy. It's not Verizon, Sprint, or Alltel that's celebrating the release, though -- for this particular release, you've gotta look north

In HTC parlance, the \"Neon\" codename denotes a device of the Touch Dual form factor -- original Touch styling plus a slider keypad, a drill we all know by now. This particular form factor seems to be a pretty popular one, too, considering the sheer number of variants HTC's turned out; at this point

A quick visit to HTC's CTIA outpost yielded dividends in the form of two little gems announced this week: the American version of the HTC Touch Dual and the Verizon XV6900, a bleached Touch with a Verizon logo slapped in place of the Sprint one. Both of these phones are rehashes of existing product

Brace yourself, US-based Touch Dual lovers -- the handset that your Japanese / European friends have been taunting you with for months is finally making the trip stateside. Slated to launch \"later this quarter\" (at Best Buy initially, of all places), the US Touch Dual will come rocking Windows Mob

As sexy as the idea of a keypadless, pebble-shaped device with a full-face touchscreen may be, for some, there's simply no replacement for the real thing. A real, physical keypad continues to be a necessity for some folks, and for as much popularity as devices like the Touch and iPhone have garnere

It was only a matter of time til T-Mobile's answer to Orange's Touch Dual arrived, and it has, in the form of the MDA \"Touch Plus\". Thankfully, T-Mobile has also opted for the 16-key layout, and aside from the obvious branding we don't expect any surprises -- by surprises, we mean, anything new --

Orange UK seems set to begin shipping this lovingly branded handset and CoolSmartPhone was kind enough to introduce us all by way of some fresh unboxing pics. As we'd already heard, the Orange version of the outrageously popular Touch device will ship with a 16-key keypad, and not the painful SureT

We've personally never had an easy time getting used to 20-key (think SureType) layouts, so this doesn't really break our hearts -- but on the flip, we understand that it's one small step away from QWERTY, which is bound to upset a few folks. MoDaCo is reporting that Orange's UK outpost will only b

Didn't take long at all following HTC's official announcement of the Touch Dual for carriers to start getting on board. First up is O2 German with the \"Xda star,\" continuing O2's longstanding tradition of appending somewhat random words onto \"Xda\" to come up with names for its smartphone hardware.

MoDaCo reports that the Touch Duals at HTC's launch event were WiFi equipped, despite word straight from the horse's mouth to the contrary. It's conceivable that some carriers will opt to disable the hardware in the hope of boosting data revenue -- or like the Trinity's GPS receiver, it could be le
