    New phones coming

    Just wanted to let everybody know, that while I was snooping around the network share where ROM's are kept I found ROM's for the following:

    HTC Touch Pro 2 (XV6875)
    HTC Toch Diamond 2 (XV6975)
    LG Chocolate Touch
    Motorola Shules (A855)
    Samsung Omnia 2 (i920)

    Looks like it will be good to be a customer of Big Red later this year :D

    EDIT: Model #'s added

    A lot of sources are saying the Omnia 2 is for sale at Best Buy starting Sunday, but I don't think Best Buy or Verizon has directly confirmed that yet..

    Anything on the iphone? I've been messing with the wife's ipod touch. the interface, screen and capacitive touch just blows anything WM away. WM is great because it is an open OS unlike Apple but it really is dated for mobile use.

    I know there is no iPhone in the near future but there is an Apple branded device out there on the LTE horizon. That is all I can say without putting my job at risk If you dig around on BGR you should find some rumors about it.

    That's what I'm hoping but was curious if he knew for sure.

    I also have information that says the Palm Treo Pro will be coming to Verizon in the next month or 2. About time, considering Alltel had it before the merger!

    PhoneArena reporting Storm 2, Touch Pro2, Omnia II, and possibly the Palm Pre in Verizon's database

    Just wanted to let you all know that I played with a VZW HTC Touch Diamond 2 (Blackstone?) today for about 10 minutes. Amazing and beautiful device.
    Came loaded with VCast Music, Videos, and TV.

    Which HTC device do you think is better, the TP2 or TD2?

    The TD2 is much nicer I think, but lack of a physical keyboard kills it for me.
    The TD2, although large, is a beautiful phone.

    Forgive my ignorance, but isn't the new touch diamond 2 called the Whitestone? Any definite release date? ...I am due for an upgrade. Thanks for all the great info!

    I spotted a network engineer (they always test the new phones) sporting an Omnia II today.
    I couldn't catch him, but will try to later in the week.
    Gonna try and sneak some pics :D

    Brent-
    I've heard numerous reports on the tp2, but haven't heard much on the touch diamond 2. Do you know if it is still planned for release this month or next?

    I have no idea at all.
    I can tell you that it first showed up this week, whereas the TP2 has been floating around the office for over a month now.
