Verizon Wireless makes HTC Touch Diamond official
It is interesting to note that not all cell phone releases are done on a worldwide basis, and even stranger is the fact that selected handsets which are rolled out on one continent might take months or even over a year before it arrives on other peoeple’s shores – case in point the iPhone amongst numerous other handsets. Well, for those who are loyal to Verizon Wireless through the years and have no intention of switching mobile carriers, good news if you’ve been hankering after the HTC Touch Diamond. This handset will be readily available from today onwards via business sales channels and online at www.verizonwireless.com. The HTC Touch Diamond has been marketed to be the “ideal productivity tool for busy professionals”, although we’re pretty sure the hip and happening crowd won’t mind signing up for one since it does come in a rather fashionable design.
Unfortunately, HTC decided to stick to the business scheme of things, and hence the HTC Touch Diamond will take on a similar color as that of Henry Ford’s Model T – it will only come in black. Still, we don’t think this will affect sales so much that it will cause HTC executives to call for an emergency meeting to vote on which other color should the Touch Diamond be available in.
