verry nice looking fone, great specs... but why no 3.5mm headphone jack? why no flash? why no card slot? weird...
3.5mm jack should be standard on every phone comming out and claiming to be a smartphone... as should be the flash, if it has a camera... they can make it 10mp, if it doesn't have flash, it's of no real use since most of the pictures are taken during evening/night, on partys or whatever :-)
combining USB and headphone socket doesn't seem to be reasonable to me... except there is a switch i can also plug in my 3.5mm headphones, then i could live with it...
and where's the speaker(s)? does it use the same speaker for calls and music? if so, either the call (voice) or the music is probably ruther bad, because call and music speakers don't have the same specs... that's what i love so mutch about my N82, two speakers just for music, giving it a great sound quality...
the design of the Touch Diamond however is absolutely unbeatable, there's no other cell that cute out there right now... so i guess i've got to give it a hans-on and then i probably can't resist it :-)

Anonymous, 04 Jun 2008I have wanted this line of phones starting with the original touch when it first came out. Was... morei agree with your comments about the touch diamond but i think one of the biggest flaws is going to be legibility when using outside in direct sunlight.
also if you look at the official release video everything is as smooth as a peachy bottom. but then take a look at the many videos on youtube of actual hands on experience and the o/s is slow sluggish and unresponsive.
im sitting on the fence for now after a bad experience with an xd orbit 2. i dearly hope the operating system is as good as its supposed to be and that i can see the screen when im outside. if so ill buy one
Touch Diamond + flash + 1350 mAh battery + card slot =...... Touch Pro.
Anything more perfect?
Already changed my mind.
I have wanted this line of phones starting with the original touch when it first came out. Was going to get the Cruise, however when I went to gt it I saw the diamond. I finally just ordered it today and cannot wait to get it I am so excited. From everything I have researched and all it is definitly better than then the iphone, though they are comming out with a new 3G model I am interested in seeing, which should be new competition for the Diamond. Yes I agree with you all this is supposed to be the top of the line smartphone they claim to have thought of complete details, convienence, luxary and so forth, yet they seem to have gone on vacation when it comes to some details. The Cruise (which I was originally looking to buy) has a micro sd slot, why doesn't the Diamond which is supposedly an upgraded or more top of the line phone? It should, as I am sure most of you would agree with me on. Also, I agree it too should have the larger screen size. I am sure there are probabally other small features that have been overlooked that this phone would do better having. However, over all I am sure it is a relly great phone, probabally one of the top/best out, even considering its shortcomings. Below I am enclosing 2 of my favorite links about the Diamond, both have really good information. The first is a video clip with a head hanco at HTC talking about the phone and demonstrating some of its features. The second is an audio clip with a computer sounding voice comparing it to the iphone that is out now (and it also mentions the new 3G model due out. Well, I hope my small pice of insite helps. Enjoy!
Can anybody tel abt the performance of the handset regarding battery,features and software.........what is the price of this handset
I have both this phone and the iphone. This phone beats the iphone in may ways..good job HTC!!!
Just checked Fedex tracking and mine got delivered today. I can't wait to get home and unbox it.
alastiar, 02 Jun 2008anyone know what ROM are used for?Rom is used to load the operating system and all the hardware
HTC's choice of a 900mAh battery can only be justified by the the use of WinMo 6.1 platform which was developed to be more power-efficient. All the people complaining about the battery life I believe have not experience WinMo 6.1 first hand.
FYI: The Diamond does last longer than "one" day. =)
ZM, 30 May 2008Hi. Can u pls help me decide if HTC Touch Cruise or HTC Touch Diamond is a better phone. I m d... moretouch cruise and touch diamond are totally different phones. touch diamond is a new htc touch, and touch cruise is an upgraded version of touch. i have the touch cruise and i love it, ofcaurse there are some flaws but there isnt a perfect phone out there yet.
Needs 1500 ma lithium polymer battery,,its no good going thin if the product is not useable in buisness as it should last the working day..hope they are not going to start doing nokiastricks???
Yes ROM stand for Read Only Memory which means if you have any documents you only can read it up to the limit of ROM for example if your ROM 128MB you only can open documents up to 128MB
i heard from other web sites that there is a memory slot can any one conform this
Hi I agreed the screen size is relatively small at 2.8 I personally like bigger screen at least to the size of 3.5
Very Very Nice Phone,
BUT If only HTC had brains
it would have made the Touch Diamond
in a 3.5 Display Screen than the 2.8
Then it would have been a iPhone killer
I don't understand why people are saying it's slow!? Just got it a few hours ago and have been playing with it since. the phone is fantastic and it's my first HTC phone. I love it. HTC shoulda add a microSD slot though. 4gb is not enough for me.
ps, if anyone is around Los Angeles, I recommend addictedtophones.com you can pick up the phones from their san gabriel office.
