Rumors start to heat up that the HTC Touch Pro2 will be offered by T-Mobile first.

Ever since the HTC Touch Pro2 was announced at GSMA 2009, everyone's been wondering when will the smartphone be available and which U.S. carrier will offer it. There's still no official word, but you know that never keeps tech community from sniffing out the details.

Now, thanks to a leaked ROM, multiple sites are reporting that the HTC Touch Pro2 will be headed to T-Mobile first. The test ROM, posted at xda-developers, shows the listed device as "RHOD21000" with the CID "T-MOB010" and language as "USA." To fuel the fire even more, the Boy Genius Report also has some fuzzy photos of a T-Mobile-branded Touch Pro2.

We always take these kind of rumors with a grain of salt, but it's no secret that T-Mobile is in desperate need of a Pocket PC phone refresh. The carrier's poor customers have been stuck with the T-Mobile Wing for a couple of years, while AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon have at least gotten a variant of the HTC Touch Pro. More to come, we're sure, at CTIA Spring 2009.
