Rumor: Verizon's HTC Touch Diamond may launch in October

It’s been a while since we’ve heard news about the HTC Touch Diamond‘s Verizon debut. According to a tip sent into PhoneDog, Verizon’s Diamond model should launch sometime in October, and it might (italics for wariness) be that “Ice White” version we heard about just a few days ago.

The tipster confirmed some of the specs (400mhz processor, microSD support) we’d heard previously, and mentioned a few new details: like Sprint’s release of the Touch Diamond, Verizon’s Diamond will come out of the box with a larger battery (1340mAh) than the standard model; as a result, this handset gets the same additional 3mm of thickness that we saw with Sprint’s. Nothing wrong with puttin’ a bit of meat on them bones for the sake of reasonable battery life, right?
