HTC Touch Diamond


The YouTube-friendly Touch Diamond

At 4 by 2 inches, the candy-bar case on the HTC Touch Diamond is about as wide as the Apple iPhone 3G's screen. The svelte (0.45-inch deep) Diamond isn't superthin, but it is slim enough to fit into your pocket. The 2.8-inch VGA touch-screen display provides crisp, bright images; and as with the iPhone 3G, you get an on-screen software keyboard for text input. The Touch Diamond's operating system is Windows Mobile 6.1 -- but you might not notice that at first glance because you can accomplish many tasks through HTC's customized TouchFLO 3D interface, which puts contacts, text messaging, e-mail, media (video and music), and Internet access at your fingertips. A built-in accelerometer automatically rotates the screen if you tilt the phone on its side. The device is primed for multimedia, too: It has a YouTube application for viewing any YouTube video over cellular or Wi-Fi; its music player handles MP3, AAC and WMA format audio; and it comes with 4GB of internal memory.

The Touch Diamond is available now from Sprint for $350 with a two-year service contract.
