More Verizon 'Whitestone' aka Diamond 2 diagrams

Though deviating from HTC's idea of the Diamond 2, Verizon sure has an idea of what its will look like (dubbed "Whitestone"), and it is basically the Touch Pro 2 sans keyboard, which many have been clamoring for. (Others have rightfully noted that's basically the Touch HD.)

We broke the first the image of what this October-destined device will look like for Verizon and now we have some layout diagrams to boot.

Some things to note are the inclusion of the unique "kickstand" and the stylus, which we're surprised is still there. Also is the dedicated "multimedia" button, which along with said kickstand is making this device very media-centric.  And why not with that huge 3.6-inch screen and 5MP camera? Seems spot on. Oh, and how about that 3.5mm jack?

More pics after the break.

  • WOW,WOW,WOW ! I just might have to leave T-mobile for this phone if HTC don't make a GSM model for the other carriers. This is the phone i've been waiting for.
  • I don't get why they don't move up to capacitive touch screens? Seems like there is an advantage there. Anyone have any ideas?
  • Why isn't HTC going to capitcitve touch screens for these devices. Anyone know?
  • No capacitive for many reasons. It's a ton of development time to get drivers and stuff ready for real-time, the OS still isn't great for it, resistive screens are starting to rock, and HTC doesn't like change a whole lot. Unless they get other companies to do it for them, then buy them.
  • Yeah, but still...
  • Awwww, does my 16:01 time mean that post doesn't count tward the speakerphone?! Bummer dude =)
  • Will this phone be upgraded to WM6.5? WM7.0?
  • It will be upgradable to WM6.5 (assuming it doesn't launch with it, it still might) but no WM7. WM7 has some pretty high-end spec requirements that this device doesn't meet. Edit: Actually, I'm pretty confident it WILL ship with WM6.5 now.
  • 1) Can't wait to map that multimedia button to something actually useful. I'm guessing that button's default mapping is to some Verizon media store which no one wants or needs. But an extra button only makes devices more usable. 2) What does a "back" button do on a WM phone? Is it just a re-named OK button?
    Pretty Please....
  • I have high confidence Sprint WILL get this phone, but not till after Verizon ;-)
  • Can't believe it! Once again HTC forgot the flash. When will they provide a complete device? Should be always something missing? It becomes very tiring at the end....
  • Stopped at T mobile Wednesday to play with the TP 2 - pretty much the same phone (GSM) with the keyboard. There were some glitches, maybe they didn't have time to set it up properly. The accelerometer was slow to recognize the change in position. The virtual keyboard in vertical was fairly accurate with haptic(?) feedback. took a few pictures in the store and camera seemed fine in "available" reasonably bright light. Friend with the TP1 said he got used to the keyboard, so the larger size of this one should be great. question is do we get this on release or wait to compare with the CDMA Omnia II probably due out around Thanksgiving? Or hold back & see which one drops to under $200 first? T mobile is asking $349 for the TP2.
  • Wait until you can one that comes with 6.5 out of the box. That's what I'm waiting for; why start with 6.1 and then have to flash a new ROM and restart all over again in just a few months.

  • Well, if VZW does like it has in the past, the stock ROM will suck. And anyone that knows HTC devices knows that you can customize the ROM to your hearts not shipping with WM6.1 is not a deal breaker for me at least....the lack of a flash DOES suck. Will have to see how that plays out with the TP2 on VZW reportedly due out Aug. 27th online.
