On Thursday, Verizon Wireless introduced its latest smartphone to the world, the HTC Touch Pro2. However, it's not so much the product announcement that's newsworthy, but rather the price.

Verizon will offer the Windows Mobile smartphone for $199.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate, which is a way better than some of its competitors (cough, T-Mobile, Sprint, cough, cough) which charge $349.99 for the same device.

Verizon doesn't cut back on the features either. The Touch Pro2 offers dual-mode functionality for world-roaming capabilities, Wi-Fi (yay!), Bluetooth, and GPS. In addition, like the Sprint model, the device is equipped with a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack and has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a tilting 3.6-inch WVGA touch screen.

Other goodies include a 3.2-megapixel camera, linked contact view (brings a contact's e-mail, text messages, call history, Flickr images, and Facebook updates into one location), and support for VZ Navigator.

The HTC Touch Pro2 will be available for order starting on Friday. Look for our full review soon!
