Following yesterday's posting about the expected release of the HTC Touch Diamond Windows Mobile Professional smartphone at Sprint, received further information for both American CDMA carriers: Sprint and Verizon. According to internal information, the HTC Touch Diamond will be called HTC Victor at Sprint and HTC Diamond at Verizon. And while Sprint's HTC Victor runs on the original HTC Touch Diamond Qualcomm 7501A chipset at 528 MHz, Verizon's HTC Diamond only runs on a Qualcomm 7500 chipset at 400 MHz. Other differences are the memory: While the Sprint's Victor is expected to feature 256 MB ROM, 256 MB RAM and the well known 4 GB internal flash memory, Verizon's Diamond is expected to feature 256 MB of ROM but 128 MB of RAM only and also the 4 GB flash memory is left in favor of microSD card support.

Last but not least, Sprint's Victor will have the HTC Touch Diamond accelerometer while Verizon's Diamond lacks it. Quite interesting is the fact that both devices are expected to be released with the extended 1340 mAh battery (the GSM version was launched with the 900 mAh battery) which should make both smartphones slightly thicker.
Furthermore, both devices share HTC Touch Diamond features like WiFi b7G, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and the 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera.

According to, it's expected that the Sprint HTC Victor will be available with Sprint on September 02 while the Verizon HTC Diamond will follow 30 days after.
