HTC Diamond3 (Obsession) will come in June

HTC Diamond3
Trustworthy sources have told that the HTC Obsession, 3.7 inch AMOLED smartphone will come this year in summer, will be coming to AT&T and T-Mobile as the HTC Diamond3.

They were also able to confirm an exact time – the smartphone was intended to ship in June 2010. Despite the plans to come so early, the smartphone is definitely a Windows Mobile 7 device, and will not be coming in a WM 6.5 version first.

A reminded of the specs HTC Diamond3 are below:

* CPU: Qualcomm QSD8250; 1GHz
* Device Size: 112 x 56 x 11.7 mm
* Memory (RAM/ROM): 512MB/512MB

* External Storage: MicroSD (up to 32GB)
* Screen Size/Type: 3.7-inch capacitive AMOLED “Multitouch Supported”
* Camera: 5.0 Megapixel AF with flash; HD 720p video@ 25fps
* Video Support: Windows Media Video (WMV), MPEG-4 (MP4/M4V) H.264, DVR-MS4

* Talk Time: Up to 10 hours
* Standby Time: 240 hours
* Internet Use: 6 hours (3G), 7.5 hours (WiFi)

Unlike previous Diamonds the device will not be coming in a CDMA version, following poor sales of the last Diamond.

In some ways the branding will be reassuring to HTC HD2 owners, who would prefer not to see their investment superseded so quickly with an HD3.
