Verizon officially announces the Imagio, available online Oct. 6, in stores Oct. 20

Hot on the heels of our getting some inside info that the HTC Imagio (Whitestone) is still on track for an Oct. 6 release on Verizon, Big Red goes ahead and confirms it, officially announcing the phone this morning. Here are the dirty deets:

  • Available in stores on Oct. 20.
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional
  • World Phone: EV-DO Rev. A and 850/900/1800/1900/2100MHz GSM.
  • WiFi b/g.
  • 3.6-inch resistive touchscreen at 480x800 pixels.
  • 3.5mm headphone jack.
  • 1,500mAh battery.
  • 5MP camera.

There you have it, folks. The first U.S. carrier to launch the Whitestone (or call it a follow to the Touch Diamond, if you want, even if it's from a different fork in the tree.) But our question still stands: Is this your thing? Or are you holding out for the Omnia II?
