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.
if UI is slow and batt last for half a day, it means the ph is NOT reliable. When the ph is not reliable, there is no point looking at its spec.
Bought one yesterday and the first impression is good. HTC really work hard on the interface and although I find it more show than use, it does look very impressive with that VGA screen. In a few area it looks like the iPhone, especially in some of the menus. Battery life is as bad as everyone says. Overall it is a good phone but needs a few adjustment. It is not a business phone though with the lack of a keyboard.
rvbarreto, 02 Jun 2008It has VGA screen?No. You can find 'real' VGA screen in the Sharp SX862.
Btw, this phone is very slow(just like the Cruise)!!!

Got Both G 900 and HTC Diamond at the same day G900 as usual SE no foul at all
HTC Daimond new 6.1 OS Batteries are not good only last for half a day may be they can come up with a stronger Batteries ?
does anyone know whether HTC Touch Diamond support animated wallpapers? is the home screen background customizable at all? i know it might be not a matter of life and death, but im just being curious:)
is here anybody, who's bought the phone already?
Never used HTC before but I love the look and feel of the phone. (SE fans btw)
Is exclusive to carrier of CSL but you can pretty much buy it in any shops in HK. 5680 HKD
Was looking at this and the SE G900. I thought for a touch screen phone it was pretty responsive (not a pda fone user at all) I was expecting worst I guess. The VGA mon is brilliant compared to the really werid whitening screen on the G900 that I saw earlier. If i had the cash I would love to try this fone. I can't even write any details as I was a noob and just kept on pressing whatever it was infront of me. And there was not anytime that i had to wait long for any response from the applications. At 11mm thin I thought it is just amazing for a PDA fone. (as one of the reason I never got into the PDA fones was becoz of the sheer damn thickness of all the ones on the market now) But this tiny thing fits perfect in the palm. I love how the stylus has a little magnet thingy on it so u don't have to push it back into place. Instead it gets sucked into the slot. (This is probably a standard thing!! like i said....me noob)
Ohh btw English versions is all they have at the moment. I think have to wait till June for the chinese one....
Anonymous, 31 May 2008I did pre-order 2 of this phone. Just tried out the phone ... not impressed at all! The touch ... moreI had similair problem with the Cruise version of HTC. The screen was not responding fast enough and it was frustrating. So, I hardly use the phone and finally sell it. Now you telling me the HTC Diamond have the same problem?
Sam, 01 Jun 2008you can buy it in Europe at devicewire.co.uk
At devicewire.co.uk is for preorder. They do not have it yet. I hope this one is okay and not like the other HTC Cruise. I had the Cruise but did not like it.
it comes with headset..it is just not mentioned in the specification
