This Videoview shows some of the hardware high- and lowlights of the HTC Touch Diamond, HTC's latest Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional smartphone. Sporting 192 MB RAM, 256 MB ROM and 4 GB of inbuilt memory, the HTC Touch Diamond lacks an expansion slot for SD memory cards. Nevertheless, it features a VGA touchscreen as well as a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera on the back and a QVGA video telephony camera on the front. The function buttons bellow the touchscreen, two of them - the Home and Back buttons look like Windows Mobile Standard keys - aren't touch-sensitive, even if they look like, but there is an exception - a touch sensitive ring around the D-Pad which can be used to zoom in/out in certain applications like the photo and video album, Google Maps Mobile or Opera Mobile 9.5.

Google Maps Mobile can be used with the inbuilt GPS receiver and the Touch Diamond includes a G-Sensor which rotates the screen in certain applications automatically (like photo and video album as well as Opera Mobile 9.5).

Coming next - a Videoview walkthrough of the feature highlights.
