I think you meant 1500 mAh for the Pro2. For a second there I thought you were saying this thing had a 1.5 GHz processor...

I would imagine anything made by a company other than HTC has better battery life. I wasn't surprised the Diamond had bad BT - I don't think any HTC phone I've ever tried had good BT yet free phones have perfectly good BT quality. But the wretched battery life and radio signal on the Diamond really soured me on HTC products.

The Toshiba TG01 - is about the best form factor I've ever seen on a PDA phone (for my needs)

I just hope Sprint finally tries another company in addition to HTC so I'm not "looking forward to" another antiquated HTC phone to make it to Sprint. I don't care about the blinds skin for WM but the form factor and resolution are fantastic. I think about the only thing they could add that I'd really like is the LED for the flash - to use as a flashlight. I'd gladly trade the whole camera function just to get the flashlight functionality.

Unfortunately, both the Whitestone and Firestone are meaningless upgrades from the Touch HD or the Touch Pro 2. In fact, without a Tegra chip, camera flash, 8GB built-in memory, etc... to buy either one would be pointless. Even the screen size @ 3.6" is the same as the TP2. I thought for sure the White or Fire would be major improvements and multimedia devices galore. They aren't even worth my sweat. So... it's the TP2. I can't imagine anyone holding out for the others. Might as well wait for 2010 and WM7.

It would be pretty stupid if they put an 8 megapixel camera on the Firestone but didn't include a flash...

HTC Whitestone Coming to Verizon in September

Source: http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_2009_roa...s-news-821.php

Quoted: "Equipped with a kickstand and dual-mode GSM/CDMA support, Whitestone will pack a 528 MHz Qualcomm 7600 processor, 512MB of ROM and 256MB RAM and will run on Windows Mobile 6.x. The device is also expected to have a 3.6" WVGA display, 5-megapixel autofocus camera and GPS with A-GPS support. The guys from Verizon will start retailing it by September."

Good news for Verizon Wireless customers! Who knows, it might come with the new WM 6.5!

Re: HTC Whitestone Coming to Verizon in September

Does it come with a stylus shaped like a crutch?

Engadget reported yesterday that it might not happen now.
