After weeks of rumors, spy shots, and speculation Sprint announced today they will be adding a CDMA version of the HTC Touch Diamond and HTC Touch Pro to their fall handset lineup.  The HTC Touch Diamond is scheduled to be available later this month with a price tag of $249.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail in rebate.  The HTC Touch Pro will be available at a Sprint store near you beginning October 19th for $299.99 with a two-year contact and after a $100 mail-in rebate as well.

According to the vice president of HTC America, Jason Mackenzie, ?Combining Sprint's mobile broadband connectivity with HTC's deep desire to blend innovative design with intuitive simplicity sets the HTC Touch Diamond and the HTC Touch Pro apart from other touch-screen phones. HTC Touch Diamond gives users one-touch access to every aspect of their life and transcends texting and dialing to provide a rich mobile Internet experience unlike anything available on the market today.  The HTC Touch Pro combines business with pleasure by offering one-handed operation of simple tasks and a full keyboard input for serious work.?

With a new customized Web browser on both the Touch and Pro, customers can expect "easy viewing and effortless navigation" of websites along with zoom and pan functions.  Behind their 2.8 inch high-resolution VGA displays, additional features include a customized, HTC-developed YouTube application for watching user-generated video content; and quick access to Sprint TVSM with an extensive selection of live and on demand video. It boasts a 3.2 MP camera/camcorder with auto focus and access to Sprint Picture MailSM to easily share images.
