The HTC Touch Diamond hasn't even gone on sale in most countries and already, another new version has been announced.
T-Mobile Germany launched three new MDA phones (its name for the HTC devices) and one of them is the MDA Vario IV, which is the rumoured HTC Raphael. The other two are variants of the Diamond and Advantage.
This PDA-phone is largely similar to the HTC Touch Diamond, but comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard like the TyTN II. According to the Netherlands-based site Mobile Phone Helpdesk, the Vario IV has all the features of the Diamond but comes with 256MB of RAM instead of 192MB. There's no indication if it will sport TouchFLO 3D like the Diamond. But looking at the flat front surface, it certainly looks ready for HTC's custom interface.
The T-Mobile MDA Vario IV will go on sale in Germany at the end of September. There's been no word from HTC regarding its availability in Australia.
