HTC Touch Diamond Review
Unlike what its name implies, the HTC Touch Diamond does not have any embedded diamonds. However, its stylish design and multitude of features may win over users who want alternatives to the iPhone. How bright will this Diamond shine? Let’s take a look.
High Tech Computer (HTC) has recently rolled out their latest kid on the block, the HTC Touch Diamond that boasts stylish design, connectivity and outstanding user experience in Singapore.
Before immensely popular iPhone was officially launched last year, the Taiwanese manufacturer was slightly ahead with the release of their HTC Touch to capture market share. Similarly, the HTC Touch Diamond was rolled out slightly before CommunicAsia 08 about a month back, and HTC touts that the Diamond can level or beat competition with its vastly improved features and performance to its Touch sibling.
The Touch Diamond comes with WM 6.1 Professional and boasts features HSDPA 7.2mbps Internet connectivity, Wireless LAN, integrated GPS, 3.2-megapixel camera and a new TouchFLO 3D user interface which can provide animated access to messaging, email, photos, music, weather etc.
Navigation is made easy with the round touch-sensitive navigation control below the screen. You can press the directional arrows to navigate up, down, left, and right on the screen, and even slide your finger clockwise or anti-clockwise for zooming in and out.
