HTC XV6975 actually is the HTC Whitestone; poised to give BlackBerry Storm a run?

After a little bit of confusion over whether the HTC XV6975 is the Touch Pro 2 or Touch Diamond 2, it now looks like there's a third option.

Dutch site Tweakers.net snagged a look at the XV6975's User Agent Profile. There we see the model name, a screen resolution of 480x800, and no keyboard. Sounds like the HTC Whitestone, which we recently saw make it through the Bluetooth SIG, to just about everybody at this point.

So to recap, it now looks like Verizon may be getting the Whitestone as the XV6975, and the Touch Pro 2 as the XV6875. Any BlackBerry Storm fans feeling a little nervous right about now?

  • I don't see anything in the highlight that goes either way as to device. The Whitestone is the HD successor. Recently I held an HD in my relatively small hands. There were some criticisms that the device was too large. I found the size fine. There have also been some criticisms that the touch keyoard on the Diamond 2 is still too small. Like others we've been impatiently waiting for a WM smart touch phone at least 3.2" screen size. Looks like we'll have multiple vendor competitive choices by year end, if not sooner.
