Sprint HTC Touch Diamond Review


First things first: let’s take a general look at the hardware behind this phone. The Touch Diamond is thinner than many Windows Mobile phones, in part because it doesn’t have a hardware keyboard. It’s also narrower than some phones. A smaller size doesn’t mean this phone is lacking in terms of power, however.

Here’s how HTC describes this phone:

The HTC Touch Diamond gives you one-touch access to every aspect of your life and the important people in it with an intuitive 3D interface. The HTC Touch Diamond also places the power of the Internet at your fingertip with an unequaled Web-browsing experience. And all of these dynamic features and powerful capabilities are contained in a small and stylish form. You’ll be amazed when you see how touch can feel with the HTC Touch Diamond.
