As mentioned earlier in an another thread, the version of the TP2 that Telus will be receiving will included a 3.5mm headphones jack, which is craze news.

Nothing had been said about the US version, but it now seems that the devices to be sold trough carriers in the states will also get the version with the standard jack. That's some crazy great news, and in my opinion is ample justification for having the TP2 released in North America a few months later than it was in Europe. Woot!

Problem is, I hope they don't delay it anymore the 08/15. I was originally planing on the MyTouch untill I found out about this one. I am in need of a upgrade urgently.

Thankyou for the update No1Special

I was currently with an employee at t-mobile and they would like to lock you on a 2 year data contract which is $25 net only and $35 net and texting. They were speculating a $299 with 2 year contract and $599 no contract deals, but this is subject to change as the release was recently pushed back to Aug. 15th.

US carriers blow so bad, I cannot wait to go back to Europe and get spoiled with some nice customer service.

Can anyone comment on this. Thanks

I hate it when people get on this site and act as if they know anything about wireless, get into the industry before you open your mouth.
