So called "reliable sources" have told WMPowerUser that HTC's rumored "HTC Obsession" is said to be HTC's next super-phone, following the HTC Diamond2 and HTC HD2. According to the tipster, the so called HTC Diamond3, is expected to be launched in summer already and running Windows Mobile 7 instead of Windows Mobile 6.5. The device is said to be powered by a Qualcomm QSD8250 CPU at 1 GHz, it's said to feature GSM and WCDAM (most likely UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA), a 3.7" capacitive AMOLED multitouch touchscreen and sports a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with flash which is capable of recording HD videos at 720p with 25 fps.

At a size of 112 x 56 x 11.7 mm, the device is said to come with 512 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM and additionally feature 4 GB internal flash memory which is expandable via microSD cards. The removable 1230 mAh battery is said to give the device a talk time of up to 10 hours (with a standby time of up to 10 days) and Internet use of 6 hours (through 3G) or 7.5 hours (through WiFi).
WMPowerUser's tipster also said, that unlike previous Diamonds,  the device will not be coming in a CDMA version, following poor sales of the last HTC Diamond. Therefore the HTC Diamond3 is set to come later this year to AT&T and T-Mobile USA.

Quite interesting is the fact that neither an HTC Obsession, nor a HTC Diamond3 was mentioned on HTC's earlier leaked Windows Mobile roadmap. On the other hand, the roadmap only showed "pre-Windows Mobile 7" devices which could be a prove for the device's existence.
