It’s an open secret at this point that Sprint is going to release the HTC Touch Diamond in the coming months, but exactly when this is going to happen has remained a mystery… until now.

Rumors have pointed to this telecom offering the Diamond for months, and a spy shot of this device with the Sprint logo appeared last week.
The latest leak is a product roadmap for this wireless carrier that has appeared on the SprintUsers forum. This shows that this telecom will introduce the “MP6950 by HTC” on September 2. As Sprint’s product number for the original HTC Touch is MP6900, the identity of this model seems virtually certain.
An Overview of the HTC Touch Diamond (CDMA)
The GSM version of the Diamond debuted last month, but the one for CDMA carriers like Sprint will be slightly different.
All the versions will have a VGA display, a 3-megapixel camera, 4 GB of storage, GPS, and Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro.
The CDMA version, though, will have a slightly more curved casing than the GSM equivalent, and carriers will have the option to include a significantly larger battery: 1340 mAh vs. 900 mAh.
Both versions will have 3G, and the CDMA one will have EV-DO Rev. A. It will also have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
