Sprint launching HTC Touch Diamond on September 2nd?

If there’s one handset out there that’s almost as highly anticipated as the iPhone, it’s the HTC Touch Diamond. Announced in May, we’ve been waiting for an official carrier announcement here in the United States. Sprint and Verizon are rumored to be among the first to offer here, but specific dates have been elusive. According to a recently leaked slide, however, it looks like we might be in for a treat come September. Apparently, the carrier is preparing to launch the Touch Diamond as the HTC MP6950 (the current touch is the MP6900), on the 2nd of September, which is just under 2 months away for anyone counting. We’ll work on getting confirmation on this, but in the mean time you might want to salivate a bit over the Telus version,which looks to be launching about a month before we see one down this way.
