Verizon’s new line-up: HTC Touch Diamond, LG 9600 Versa, Nokia 7205 Intrigue and BlackBerry Pearl Flip
Hey there, Verizon Wireless customers, wouldn’t you like to know what handsets your carrier is preparing to launch in the next few months?
Well, we’re now sure about four of Verizon’s upcoming devices: HTC Touch Diamond, LG 9600 Versa, Nokia 7205 Intrigue and BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 – all of which have just appeared in a promo flyer leaked by Engadget.
Basically a keyboardless version of HTC Touch Pro (which is available at Verizon since November 2008), HTC Touch Diamond is a slim Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone that will appeal to those who prefer a stylish device rather than one with a hardware QWERTY keyboard. It’s said that the Diamond will hit the shelves in March, but pricing details are currently missing.
LG 9600 Versa (we saw it in some live shot, not long ago) should be released at about the same time with HTC’s Diamond. Unfortunately, its price is also unknown.
Nokia 7205 Intrigue looks to be an elegant mid-end clamshell. It’s not clear yet when it will be launched, but it shouldn’t take long until this happens.
And finally, BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 (the CDMA version of Flip 8220) completes the picture, although exact details about its release are still out of our reach.
