HTC Touch Diamond

The HTC Touch Diamond is headed to Telus later this summer. As with the Samsung Instinct to be offered by Bell, Telus will offer at least one plan with unlimited web browsing data plan (starting at CAD$30/month).

The Telus version of the HTC Touch Diamond will offer EV-DO Rev.A connectivity.

Telus will offer the HTC Touch Diamond for CAD$149.99 with a three-year contract. It will also offer it for CAD$349.99 with a two-year contract, CAD$399.99 with a one-year contract and CAD$449.99 without a contract.

And just like that, there are a couple more alternatives to the Apple iPhone to be offered by Rogers.

Sprint and Verizon are both expected to make similar announcements in the U.S. shortly. For now, Telus has the bragging rights.
