HTC Touch Diamond Available June 2008

More news on the HTC Touch Diamond, quite possibly the best-looking Windows Mobile smartphone ever produced. According to this article, Touch Diamond will be available to France's Orange carrier and estimated arrival is next month. HTC has been working hard to tweak the Windows Mobile operating sytem to rival the slick touch and feel of an iPhone. They've put in a lot of small touches like three different types of on screen keyboard and a more three-dimensional feel/interaction. There is a nice flash animation at HTC Touch Diamond's product page for your reference.

With 3G HSDPA data, WiFi, Bluetooth, 2.8" VGA (640x480) display, 4GB internal memory, GPS on top of Microsoft's enterprise support (Windows Mobile based). This phone is very likely to bring me back to the dark WinMo side.

PS - The most appealing thing about this phone is probably its design, at a mere 11.3mm, its beyond more beautiful than any of the previous product offerings made available by HTC or other Windows Mobile phone on the market today.
