Touch Diamond 2 at Newegg - sans U.S. 3G

Sure enough, that's an HTC Touch Diamond 2 for $589.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab). [via] But before you go dropping that much jing, do notice our awesome Photoshop skills, which have highlighted the data transfer section of the specs. That's right, there's no U.S. 3G. (Yes, it'll still work on GPRS and EDGE. And as you read in our review, they work just fine.) Also, we didn't notice any "Shipping on xxxx" disclaimers, but ...

So if you're hoping for the full-fledged U.S. version of the phone, you're just gonna have to keep on waiting a little while longer.

  • I did some photoshopping of my own just to add to the uncertainty...but it looks like according to the pics that it indeed does have 3g.
  • It does NOT have 3G for the U.S. Only overseas. If you're looking for the Diamond2 to work on a U.S. 3G Network (like AT&T), you're out of luck until they release one that has 850 MHz HSPDA. This one doesn't have it.
  • I believe you can get it cheaper ordering it from Europe. I ordered it from Europe and received it in 3 days. It was great service from a legit website.
  • And that website was?
  • Well, AT&T is now going to sell the u.s. version in august for those that bought it ahead of time
  • I wouldn't say "suck"....I bet I only ended up paying an extra $100 to $200 for an unlocked phone. I think it's a good move.
