Upgrade to Diamond from Touch Vogue or go to TP2?

I'm on Sprint and at end of 2 years where I'm eligible for an upgrade. I've had the Sprint Touch (Vogue) for almost 2 years and have been very happy with other than the fact it is somewhat laggy (much improved after flashing better ROMs, but not perfect).

I DO NOT need a hardware keyboard. My phone is on it's last legs and I am ready for an upgrade.

The Diamond really seems to be what would work for me, but I'm concerned if it is also laggy (I realize it doesn't have a memory card slot; while I don't like that, I can live with it).

Or would I better off with the new Touch Pro 2 even though I don't need a keyboard? Is it significantly snappier than the Diamond? Only other advantage I can see for the TP2 is that it is a world phone which would be handy occasionally.

If I decide on the Diamond it looks like it might be cheaper to just get one on eBay than through Sprint.

I have been trying to negotiate the TP2 price with Sprint (am awaiting a call back) -- I don't have a business account, but a very high $$ family plan with a lot of phones on it.

What are your recommendations for me?

Thanks.

I have some apps I need to use regularly (nothing the average guy would need) that need Windows Mobile.

I'm not sure how likely it is but I'd wait for the Leo aka Sprint Adonis...

HTC LEO= Touch HD2= Sprint Adonis!

Looks nice, but I probably can't wait that long. My Touch is on it's last legs (despite new flashes, it regularly locks up -- I hit the power button and nothing happens without a reset). Of course Sprint tells me nothing is wrong with it.

Thanks. I am seriously considering that. How does the Diamond's speed compare to my old Touch? Is it comparably laggy or is it noticeably better?

Comparably better imo... Its way faster, although I guess i could depend on the rom you're running.

Thanks. I'm waiting to hear back from Sprint. Unless they offer me a really good deal on the TP2 (not very likely) I'll probably go with a Diamond from eBay. I only would buy a new one though and there aren't many listed (right now 3 for $240 or under shipped).

I would say if you can get a TP2 for $199 go for that. Too bad they aren't getting the Imagio. But wait and see what some more phones are because the Diamond is a year old.
