Sprint's Diamond gets pictured
wow how nice.
I hate to say this but I'm glad that Sprint is getting nicer phones.
Fer shizzle, my nizzle!
This is coming to Sprint 1st, yippie
Awwwwww, no front facing camera (covered by Sprint logo). On the other hand, very excited - pictures means coming soon!

Hmmm... In the United States, no carrier supports a complete video calling service. In AT&T you can send videos as messages..... But, besides an obsession with yourself that pushes you to take portrait pictures of you while you look at yourself on the screen at the same time while you take to picture to later put it on the phone as a wallpaper and look at yourself every time you open the phone, the back camera does a good job to "capture" those moments of life that can't wait to be remember.
thats not the HTC diamond !!!

Yes it is... The Shadow has a different button design and "D-Pad".... and Yes it is! P.S.: Yes it is P.S.2: Yes it is, but don't tell nobody - specially only... shhh ... it is a secrete!

num 5 it is the htc diamon num 4 ther is a front camera
What front-facing camera in a CDMA phone ? (No video calling)

it kind of looks like the htc shadow from tmobile?
Yeah you're right. Looks like a sprint version of the shadow. This is not the diamond. The rounded top and bottom and the lack of a front facing camera give it away.
blahblah, the Sprint logo is clearly right on top of where the camera is on the GSM version. American versions never have front-facing cameras.
and who cares? its a phone!
video calling, fool
Who are you going to video call with if only one US phone has the feature? I guess you can buy two of them and video call with your self. Sounds like a nice feature but in the real world it would be more of a hassle. Eveywhere you go you will look like a fool holding your phone out in front of you, not to mention tring to drive. Didn't they already try video calling on landlines like 10 years ago? Boy did that ever take off!! The only situation where I see any use for the feature would be business confernce calls.

CDMA doesn't do data and voice at the same time, so I can see why this doesn't have a front facing camera. The reason GSM carrier like ATT can do front facing camera is because it contains two seperate chip, one for voice (GSM) and one for data (3G, UMTS, etc). Combine the two, you get video phone, or surf the web and talk at the same time. Something lacking in the CDMA carrier.

Actually, CDMA does the same with 3g. If you are using 2g data, you can't do both. If you are using 3g, you can. However, in the Sprint phone I use, they use a "feature" that disables voice while on data and vice versa; you can disable it with a settings hack and do data alongside voice just fine.

no 3g phone on a cdma carrier can have voice and data because evdo is incompatible...all cdma carriers would have to upgrade their towers to ev-dv

@envi and what phone can do video calls? even U have voice and data at the same time, Ur phone does not have the capabilities.

"On the Sprint phone that [you] use" which shall go nameless, I suppose. Well , , , that's still good news to me! So, on the new Palm Treo 800w - coming soon, to stores, and me - some sort of hack would "do the trick?" Right? Uhh, 'sure would like to know how t' do dat. ;) tnx.
does anybody know if there's going to be a Verizon model too,i hope so,cause sprint's service is garbage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
