HTC Touch Diamond approved for US market

with 5 comments

Finally, after a long time, HTC yesterday got approval from FCC for their Touch Diamond phone with HSDPA. This is the phone, HTC is pitching against iPhone and has been available worldwide for some time now. It took FCC some time to approve, however, it was approved with full 3G support. I compared it against other touchscreen devices here, and as you can see in that post, the HTC certainly is lighter than the iPhone and comes with more powerful camera. Though, on the down side, the screen is smaller but with VGA support (480X640). No word on which operator it launches, when or at what price.

  1. Hi,

    I would like to know where i can purchase a authentic US version HTC Touch Diamond, with the updated ROM.

    I am afraid of ordering one online because I can not confirm that it is correct for the US market, and has the necessary updates.

  2. Hassan,
    You are just a bit early. Looks like the Diamond will be released on both Verizon and Sprint sometime this month. On Sprint, it will be called HTC Touch Victor and will have the same 528Mhz CPU that we find in the HTC Touch Diamond’s GSM brethren, with 256MB ROM / 256MB RAM and 4GB internal memory.

    On Verizon, it will still have the HTC Touch Diamond moniker, but it will have a slower 400MHZ CPU, 128MB RAM and no internal memory. Instead it will have a microSD card slot.

    So, keep a look out for Sprint HTC Touch Victor announcement.
