Verizon Wireless launched the HTC Touch Diamond, coming a little late the party since the phone's successor has already been announced by HTC. Sprint Nextel first launched the Touch Diamond last fall.

Such features may have seemed impressive back in September 2008, but HTC Touch Diamond 2--announced in February as the successor to HTC's Touch Diamond--includes a range of enhancements including a 5-megapixel auto focus camera and "gravity sensor and an ambient light sensor," according to HTC.
Nonetheless, Verizon Wireless is moving ahead with the Touch Diamond, offering it starting tomorrow for $299.99 with a two-year contract and after a $70 mail-in rebate.
