Canadian Telus Mobility is the first North American carrier which confirmed to release the HTC Touch Diamond later this summer. While neither Verizon nor Sprint have confirmed an upcoming launch yet, a Canadian carrier is again the first to launch another Windows Mobile smartphone first. Since Telus Mobility is a CDMA carrier, Telus Mobility's Touch Diamond is for sure the CDMA version, featuring EVDO Rev. A high-speed Internet access. Other confirmed features are Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, TouchFLO 3D, inbuilt GPS, the 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera on the back, Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi and inbuilt 4 GB memory. However, the FM radio, which the WCDMA version also includes, isn't mentioned by Telus Mobility.

Interesting is the design, either Telus Mobility has chosen or which is the standard design of the CDMA version anyway because it's not the typical HTC Touch Diamond design with a diamond shaped battery cover but it's the same as T-Mobile uses exclusively for its MDA compact IV. However, unlike T-Mobile's design, which flipped the call, Home and Back keys, Telus' version is sporting the original button layout with the Home and Back keys in the upper row and the call send/end keys in the lower row.

Telus Mobility's HTC Touch Diamond will be available for CAD$ 149.99 with a three-year contract. Without a contract, Telus will charge CAD$ 449.99.
