yesterday's posting about the expected release of the
HTC Touch Diamond
Windows Mobile Professional smartphone at Sprint,
phoneArena.com received further information for both American CDMA carriers:
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 phoneArena.com, 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.
