Elgreco, 10 Jul 2008the diff is dude that in us canada n asia phones are cdma, while europe gsm thats for 2G... 3G... moreThat's completely wrong usa and canada have gsm phone providers what are you talking about?
lol this fones a brick... my htc diamind feels much lighter... as for this fone my n95 works better lol... and the keypad layout is poor the whole feel of the buttons is terrible!
This phone would be the best! IF it had a 3" or bigger screen...
Will the non US version work with the T-Mobile network??? I'm too impatient to wait for the US release.
From the HTC Europe Website
Europe/Asia: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
(Band frequency and data speed are operator dependent.)
yeah, really, before you start whining about why there are 2 versions instead of one...such a big dilemma.
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2008Farzad was trying to say why build two versions of the same phone when you can just build one ... morethe diff is dude that in us canada n asia phones are cdma, while europe gsm thats for 2G... 3G is 1xrtt in u.s, asia canda n latin america, while hsdpa in europe...

Anonymous, 07 Jul 20083g is to make video calls.3G Stands for 3rd-generation. Analog cellular phones were the first generation. Digital marked the second generation.
3G is loosely defined, but generally includes high data speeds, always-on data access, and greater voice capacity. The high data speeds are possibly the most prominent feature, and certainly the most hyped. They enable such advanced features as live, streaming video.
There are several different 3G technology standards. The most prevalent is UMTS, which is based on WCDMA. (WCDMA and UMTS are often used interchangeably.)
Travis Garland, 10 Jul 2008Yes but the Touch pro had a Micro sd Slot and the diamond doesnt
;-)Travis you're wrong I think?
Card slot: microSD (TransFlash)
Copied from specs Here:
Card slot microSD (TransFlash)
It's FANTASTIC. No "Jerkface" I-Phone for me!!
And Navigon allready claims support for their software WITH TMC service provided.
Allso I can buy it without further expensive subscriptions at my standard phone supplyer for 300€
BRING IT TO ME!!! :-)

GSM 900 / 1800 / 1900 for Europe/Asia
GSM 850 / 1800 / 1900 for Americas
HSDPA 2100 / 900 for Europe/Asia
HSDPA 850 / 1900 for Americas
2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
3G Network HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
This way you can just make one device instead of having making two types.
What's the QWERTY keyboard buttons made of?
Is it the same with the SE xperia x1?

i wish i could shout at them: "hey men, factories try to make their devices worldwide-friendly day by day ... what the hell did you think when designing your new devices ?????" ...
WTF?? Both devices, htc touch diamond and htc touch pro are available in europe, asia AND usa so WTF are you talking about? That (t-mobile or att, im not us so i dont know which one) renamed it is their own fault, not htc's
