HTC Touch Diamond redefines the perception of smartphones by combining hi-tech prowess with an exquisite petite handset design. Some users say that it might rival a notebook computer due to its vibrant touch-responsive user interface, the stunning TouchFLO 3D, a sharp 2.8-inch touch screen, and ultra-fast HSDPA internet connectivity at up to 7.2Mbps.
Weighting no more than 110 grams, HTC is housed in a formation of brushed steel and flawless faceted edges, keeping in line with the angled theme of “diamond”. There is a power key, a volume rocker, and the combined USB charging/headphones port at the bottom. For such a small handset, it is equipped with Windows Mobile® 6.1 Professional operating system, 528MHz Qualcomm processor and 192MB RAM, HSDPA/WCDMA cu Tri-band GSM, GPRS and EDGE, GPS and A-GPS that can be used with TomTom®, CoPilot® Live or any other advanced mapping software. It has a 4 GB internal memory for multimedia storage and a 3,2 megapixels camera for clear and beautiful photos plus a VGA quality front-facing camera for video calling.

Nevertheless, even if HTC Touch Diamond has some few bads also (the platform is a little bit buggy, prone to extended lag spikes, appalling battery life), the phone offers a viable alternative to iPods. The Touch Diamond is quite a handy portable media player capable of playing MP4 and WMV video files, and plays a range of unprotected audio formats.
Therefore, The Diamond can proudly stand along Apple’s iPhone, BlackBerry Bold and Nokia E71 or E63.
