no flash - big deal iphone has a shit cam and it sells
no mem card slot -several new phones dont either (SE w960, iphone, n95 8gb, etc) but more than 4gb wud hv been better
battery life - u can always buy a better battery + some phones need less battery than others eg htc shift uses a 2700mah bat and can only run for 3hrs
it looks gud on the front but hty screwed up the back
HUGE mistakes!!! I agree.
- 900mAh battery
- no card slot
- no flash
Basically, with these mistakes this phone outdated already.
We have to wait for the Apple Iphone 3G too. Then we'll compare!!!!
car phone warehouse is saying that the htc diamond will be coming out next month in uk promising!!!!!!!!!
to people picking on the 'slot business,tough! there isnt anything u cant do without 4gb. B glad they added it. but gd n HTC. now 'bout the price...
Not anymore...i hate htc now,after buying htc touch cruise..very slow ui..and no help from htc.
It would've been nice to have a powerful battery.
For that much options it's kinda small at 900mAh.
OMG 900mah battery? That's suicide! With that battery the phone will only last for 1 day without doing anything!
they should have made this a slide phone, like Samsung U700 so you at least have a number pad, and the Samsung is also only 11mm thick....
i second that. no card slot inside or out has killed an otherwise god damn absolute beaut.
even if no card slot, surely they can get 8GB internal
The HTC Touch Diamond™ will be available to customers across all major European carriers in June. It will be available later this quarter in Asia and the Middle East. The North American and Latin American versions of the Touch Diamond will be available in the second half of 2008.
"Our long-standing relationship with HTC meant they shared their phone concept and worked with us from the earliest stage. This early collaboration is important to us because at Orange, we know that the right multimedia experience is about more than just the phone," said Olaf Swantee, EVP of Orange's global mobile operations. "Our approach is to select and test the best phones and integrate our applications, combining them with access to the Orange World portal, the best tariffs, integrated billing, a user-friendly interface and excellent customer support. With the Touch Diamond from Orange we have created a unique phone which has taken advantage of our latest service innovation to build upon the consistently rich experience customers expect from Orange."
