HTC Touch Diamond Sprint

Official details have slipped tonight for Sprint's version of the HTC Touch Diamond. The carrier's edition of the Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone varies slightly from the Telus edition already available outside of the US and comes with a red-tinted back as well as a customized Sprint version of the TouchFLO interface with access to some more carrier-specific features. Other features remain the same and include a 3.2-megapixel camera, 4GB of internal storage and custom clients for media playback as well as YouTube videos. Opera Mobile also remains preloaded to offer a more complete browsing experience than Internet Explorer's mobile edition.

The American provider plans to ship its version of the Diamond later in September but will sell it for less than Telus, putting the price of the potentially iPhone-rivaling handset at $250 (compared to Telus' $350) when bought alongside a two-year contract and an accompanying rebate; full software features should be revealed along with a more formal introduction in the near future.
