Verizon upgrades its version of the Touch Diamond2?
In the past, Verizon was known for crippling some of the smartphones it was offering to customers. It might have been a slower processor or a smaller memory chip or removing a YouTube client. To top it off, the price for the Verizon model would usually be higher. But with the upcoming HTC Touch Diamond2/Whitestone, Big Red is actually upgrading the handset.

Verizon's model will be equipped with an upgraded 3.6 inch WVGA touchscreen with 400 x 800 pixels, the same size as the screen for the Touch Pro2. The original version of the phone has a 3.2 inch screen. It will also have a 5MP camera with AF and a mechanism for Anti-handshaking and will be shipped as a CDMA/GSM world phone. Yet, while the nation's largest carrier did increase the size of the display, the unit will ship with Windows Mobile 6.1 even though 6.5 should be out around the same time as when Verizon launches its version of the Touch Diamond2 in September or October. Oh well, some things never change.
