When available in Store?

I know I can get one through telesales but would like to see and feel one first. Not sure if I can live with on-screen keyboard? Stopped in the local sprint stores here in columbus ohio and they had no idea what the device was... I know wait for the pro, but again would like to try one first as well. Been using treos for last several years...

Stand Alone GPS

Measuring 4 by 2 by 0.45 inches and weighing in at just 4.1 ounces, the Diamond ($249 on Sprint with a two-year contract) makes for one of the smallest and lightest Windows Mobile-powered handsets on the market—certainly much smaller than last year's bulky HTC Touch.

The Diamond is gorge...
