HTC Touch Diamond2

The HTC Touch Diamond2 boasts a sleek design with a larger and sharper display than its predecessor. The enhanced TouchFlo interface makes navigation easier. The Windows Mobile smartphone also features Wi-Fi, GPS, a 5-megapixel camera, and good general...

HTC Touch Diamond2 review


It's set to be a tough year for smartphones, and there's plenty of change afoot as companies battle amid tightening customer purse-strings. The new iPhone is set to arrive over the summer; Palm's Pre is imminent, and Microsoft have the latest...

Fingerprint nightmare ; Average sunlight legibility ; Questionable build quality ; No TV out port ; No standard 3.5mm audio jack ; No magnetic stylus

We now welcome its successor, somewhat insipidly named HTC Touch Diamond2. Improving the functionality of the original Diamond, the Diamond2 comes with rather different design that is certain to raise some degree of discussion. But it's the performance...

HTC Touch Diamond2 Review


When a product proves to be a success, it´s fairly logical it sooner or later gets a successor. As it name suggests, the HTC Touch Diamond2 comes out to lend some more color to the otherwise nice, but aging model that was released last year. Hitting...

Preview: Taking the HTC Touch Diamond2 for a spin


HTC's Touch line of handsets has been one of the company's most interesting releases and over the past two years or so we've seen a wide range of fine Windows Mobile devices appear. From the Touch to the Touch HD to the non-touch S740, it's been great...
