We just got word on the exact release dates of some of the hottest new gadgets that are going to hit the T-Mobile shelves in the following weeks. Thanks to an anonymous tipster we now know that the subscribers of one of the largest carriers worldwide will be treated to a series of QWERTY-enabled handsets, with the Touch Pro2 the obvious star signing.

The new T-Mobile Touch Pro2 is scheduled to launch on August 12, replacing the T-Mobile Wing in the handset lineup. One of the best-equipped WinMo handsets of all times paid our office a visit for an in-depth review not too long ago. You can check out how it performed over here.

The yet unannounced BlackBerry Curve 8520 is going to launch across T-Mobile stores, starting from August 5. The sleek and stylish entry-level handset is one of the worst-kept secrets in the industry with tons of live photos and reviews leaking online before it even came close to an announcement.

The full QWERTY-equipped BlackBerry Curve 8520 arrived in our mailbox with what might just be its first official photos ever. Spec-wise it has Wi-Fi, a 3.5mm standard audio jack, microSD card slot and USB to brag about. Unfortunately, there is no 3G onboard so users will have to rely on EDGE when a Wi-Fi hotspot isn't available.

The other two messengers that T-Mobile is going to offer soon are that Samsung Gravity 2 and the Samsung Comeback, on which we reported the other day. They will be available from 19 August and 29 July respectively.
