For your consideration: Above, we have the HTC Touch Diamond and the, well, HTC Touch Diamond.

Static over at HowardForums has posted a series of photos showing the GSM version of the Touch Diamond atop its CDMA cousin, currently offered by Canadian carrier Telus.

While the Telus version is obviously thicker, Static notes that with the flat back it's more comfortable to hold, and it's not nearly the fingerprint magnet that Dieter showed us in his hands-on video.

This should give folks here in the U.S. a pretty good look at what's in store in a few weeks, when the "Victorized" CDMA version of the Diamond is expected to drop on Sprint.

Check out the rest of the comparison photos at HowardForums.
