Touch Diamond battery life is too too short.It does not last even a day. I personally have to get it fully charged in the morning and have it recharged in the afternoon.
Specifications given are wrong.

I expect an official answer at firstname.lastname@example.org

simply espectacular phone, ! It only needs a camera whith 5 megapixels or moore. And extra aplications for all java games and tv receptor, like
n.95 or n82 device. Buy it! Any phone is perfect.!

arjen, 21 Jul 2008Does anyone know if the HTC Touch Diamond works well with Apples iCal and addressbook and mail... morenot sure... Im also a mac user and i now using the Diamond... and i can tell u that my mac does recognize my phone when i plug it!!!
so i guess u cant do anything concerning syncin'...
This device rocks! Soooo much better than the iPhone. iPhone hype is making people make a bad decision with there purchases. The iPhone is limited in many features compared to the Diamond! The Diamond is a winner for me. Best phone in a long time. I have used both!
just bought this fone here in taiwan. and trust me when i say "this is the best mobile phone screen display i've ever seen". my eyes are so relaxed when i'm using it. such a beauty.

My opinion on Touch Diamond, purely personal of course:
+ ideal proportins and weight
+ excellent stylus implementation
+ Touch FLO
+ good camera
+ GPS, Wifi
+ rich feature pack
+ MS Office docs editor
- weak battery
- poor design (fingerprint magnet)
- poor music player (no 3.5mm jack, can't use quality headphones)
- paint starts to wear off quickly (on the back panel)
- no memory card slot
- no trackball
I have been reading this site for ages whilst considering buying a Diamond. (I did the same for my HTC TyTn II). It is available as an upgrade from Vodafone in the UK. I'm an every day business user - not a tech kind of guy. I was very nearly put off by all the comments on here - so many negatives but I decided to give it a punt.
At first I hated the phone, took a few hours to get used to but later in the day, the phone, it's functions and how to use became second nature and it is the best phone I have ever used, by a country mile. I would imagine that someone who has never used Windows Mobile might struggle with it for a bit longer.
I love the look and feel of the device, the software and the lack of the keyboard that i enjoyed with the TyTn II. OK, touchflo is a tad slow but it adds to the smoothness of it, a very nice way to work generally. Data imput by on screen full qwerty is great even using fingers and not the stylus.
The only real disapointment is the battery however I went into this eyes open know that would be an issue so how can one complain about it? I understand there is an extended battery which will increase the depth of the device, so I will be looking at buying one.
As an everyday business user that wants a very smart device and easy connectivity to exchange server, this is a great great device!
Can someone tell me if the rom ver1.37.707.1 wwe ; radio : 1.00.25.05 ; protocol : 18.104.22.168u).is compatible for the Dutch(NL)
