While neither today's available HTC Touch Diamond nor the upcoming HTC Touch Pro support North American UMTS/HSDPA frequencies, the HTC Touch Diamond got at least a 2G ROM update which enabled the missing fourth GSM-band while the HTC Touch Pro will be quadband out-of-the-box. However, if EDGE isn't fast enough for you, the FCC just unveiled that it approved a North American version of the HTC Touch Diamond, supporting UMTS, HSDPA and even HSUPA at 850 and 1900 MHz. For new and upcoming customers, it's definitely good news but please keep in mind that today's available HTC Touch Diamonds will not get a tri- or even quadband 3G upgrade to make them working in the U.S. or Canada.

According to the FCC documents, the U.S. Touch Diamond (version DIAM110) will also keep its Bluetooth and WiFi support. And while the FCC hasn't unveiled a photo yet, therefore we can also guess if the DIAM110 will feature the squarish original design or the slightly modified rounder design, the FCC has now approved the HTC Touch Diamond; so it shouldn't take to long to be officially available State-side as well.

Cheers ~ Arne
