Sprint Touch Diamond leaks
The first images showing what appears to be a Sprint-badged and therefore first CDMA version of the iPhone-fighting Touch Diamond from HTC have leaked on the Internet today. While the rumors of a Sprint Diamond date back to April, the phone is expected to be delayed. Little other details are confirmed, except for an unsubstantiated claim that the Diamond will launch ahead of the Touch Pro.
The CDMA Diamond will use HTC's TouchFLO 3D interface with a few Sprint-specific ingredients thrown in. Other specs should be similar to the GSM version of the phone, including a 640x480, 2.8-inch touchscreen, 4GB of built-in flash memory along with a microSD card slot, and an upgraded 3.2-megapixel camera.
On the software side, Windows Mobile 6.1 juggles functions such as 3G HSPA support, built-in WiFi and Google Maps for real-time and assisted GPS functionality. A mid-October release date for the Sprint Diamond is expected. [via PhoneArena]
