Verizon may finally get Touch Diamond

Might Verizon finally be getting the HTC Touch Diamond? Engadget Mobile thinks so. They've got a spy who says the Diamond will see the the light of the big V for the first time "in early to mid-March."

How late to the party are they? By comparison, Sprint supposedly will end-of-life its Touch Diamond in July.

In other VZW news, Engadget's tipster also points to a new phone "unlike anything anyone has seen before." What that is, we've got no idea. Also, the Samsung Omnia may be reduced to $99 with contract in mid-March.

But, really, with all the new HTC goodness we know is in the works, are you really going to be excited about snagging a Diamond just now?

  • I'd like the Touch Diamond, if it's not as crippled as what the Sprint document showed.
  • Definitely a year late and a dollar short. Diamond's good but old news. IF Verizon had any sense they'd be introducing the HD successor (Whitestone) at this point. There is a need for a slightly smaller "mid" (say 3.4" screen) device with HD capability. I played with the Omnia the other day and it too seemed slow and dated. Getting frustrated enough i just might buy an unlocked 3G phone and go over to ATT
  • this is one of the biggest problems i had with verizon, they we always so far behind when i cam to smart phones, that and the crazy prices are the reason im now on sprint.
