HTC Launches the Touch Diamond Mobile

The Touch Diamond Is Chock Full of High-Tech Goodies

Thanks to HTC, I've just witnessed the Touch Diamond launch in London, and I must admit, this is definitely a handset that warrants bragging rights. Unfortunately, the Touch Diamond doesn't come encrusted in diamonds like its name may imply, but it does boast flawless faceted edges, which distinctly resemble that of a perfectly cut diamond, adding an elegant touch indeed. I couldn't help but notice certain features that certainly resemble that of the iPhone, but all in all, there's enough distinction to put the Touch Diamond in a league of its own.

The user-friendly Touch Diamond is tiny and mighty. It fits comfortably in one hand and can easily slide into a back or front pocket. Designers of the Touch Diamond wanted to create a phone that is "real to life" in the sense that you can check your email like flipping through real mail, you can view photos like shuffling through a roll of film, and for listening to music, it's all done with one touch. This handset is the first mobile device to offer Mobile 6.1 by Microsoft and uses Opera with zoom and scrolling capabilities for the full net browsing experience. Internet Explorer 6 is said to be on they way (wasn't ready at the time of launch).

To learn about other great features of HTC's Touch Diamond and to view a gallery of "unveiling" photos,


The vibrant 2.8-inch touchscreen perfectly displays web pages, photos, and artwork through the lovely TouchFlo 3D graphics processor. And the 3.2-megapixel autofocus cam is great for taking pics while on the go. It also comes with integrated GPS and offers a cool weather feature (already quite popular on the TouchFlo) which shows off the weather in cities of your choice with awesome graphics. And with the super fast HSDPA internet connectivity, you can quickly upload pics, tunes, and videos to your 4GB of internal storage!

Pricing details haven't been announced, but HTC's Touch Diamond will be coming to Europe and Asia this June and to the US in the following months.
