Sprint HTC Touch Diamond Review

Article Index

Conclusion

As a whole, HTC did a good job when designing this phone and the TouchFLO 3D interface. Although there are a few things we’d change (like adding a 3.5mm audio jack and a microSD slot), none of these things are deal breakers. Assuming you can live without a hardware keyboard, this is one of the smaller, more attractive Windows Mobile phones we’ve seen to date. It’s easily pocketable, yet still has plenty of power, storage, and functionality.



Many people may categorize the Touch Diamond as a business device due to the fact that it runs Windows Mobile and supports Microsoft Direct Push, but really, it’s also a joy for consumers with its touch controls, media capabilities, 3.2MP camera, and more. With its sleek, black finish, the device has a serious look, yet its soft, red casing on the back alludes to the phone’s fun side as well.

The phone is currently available from Sprint for a price of $249.99 after discounts, rebate, and a two-year contract. Over time, this price will drop, but for a newly released Windows Mobile smartphone, this price is right on target with the rest.
