3G Touch Diamond confirmed
A new leak today reveals the much-anticipated HTC Touch Diamond will support HSDPA and HSUPA 3G data networks in the US market. The news comes after the device was spotted on Best Buy's online store, listed as unlocked and sporting a near $700 price tag. Best Buy estimates customers will get their HTC Touch Diamonds sometime between September 29 and October 4, although that may be postponed closer to those dates.
Best Buy already carries HTC's range of handsets, including the Cavalier, Shift, Touch and Touch Dual, and is currently taking pre-orders for the new device. The Touch Diamond will use Windows Mobile 6.1 for its operating system and run it on a 528MHz Qualcomm CPU. It will have a built-in GPS sensor, Wi-Fi module and the next generation of HTC's TouchFLO user interface. It will also have a 3.2-megapixel camera along with an accelerometer. [via Engadget]
