Well look what dropped in our mailbox.  Some images and deets on the upcoming Verizon Diamond 2 (aka 'Whitestone' aka XV6975), the HTC Mega and a bit of an update to the Tachi image.

First up is the Verizon Diamond 2/Whitestone device, picture above. We're hearing a Sept/October release window is the goal for Big Red.  The specs will be as follow:

  • WM6.1 (no WM6.5 on launch?)
  • Qualcomm 7600 @ 528MHz
  • 512MB ROM/256MB RAM
  • 3.6-inch WVGA touchscreen
  • 5-megapixel autofocus camera/Anti-handshaking
  • gpsOne (aGPS and full GPS)
  • GSM/CDMA World phone

We have to say that although the body of the Diamond 2 here looks a bit ... different ... those are some killer specs for a non-keyboard device. Kudos to you, Verizon, with this and the Ozone.

Check out the Mega and Tachi after the break ...

HTC Mega

Up till now, not too much has been known about the HTC Mega outside of having some new TouchFlo 2D goodness and low-range specs. First, to the right you can see what she'll actually look like for the first time.  Next, here are the numbers:

  • WM6.5
  • Qualcomm 7225@ 528 MHz
  • 256MB ROM/256MB RAM
  • 2.8-inch QVGA (240x320)
  • 3-megapixel fixed-focus camera
  • gpsOne

Certainly not earth-shattering by any means, but this device is obviously to fill the low-end of the market.  Still, not too shabby for the bottom these days.

Finally, though we're not expecting the Tachi here in the U.S., this pic is every so slightly updated from the previous version.  Mostly the center d-pad area is less chrome-y. Yay.
