starts shipping unlocked HTC Touch Diamonds

After right around 2 weeks of offering pre-orders for the unlocked WinMo 6.1 powered HTC Touch Diamond, Best Buy has started taking immediate orders from all the folks out there dying to get in on the TouchFlo 3D action who just can’t bring themselves to hop on Sprint. At a whopping $700 bucks before the extra $50 or so you’ll eat in taxes and shipping, the novelty of living the sans-contract life doesn’t come cheap.

I think it’s pretty safe to say we won’t be seeing this one in their airport vending machines.
