smartphone with the most coverage 08/09 might be the Apple iPhone 3G but
European smartphone of the year is a different one, it's the
Diamond, HTC Corporation's flagship handset has been named "European Smart
Phone 2008-2009" by the members of EISA, the European Imaging and Sound
Association. EISA is a unique association made up of some the most influential
lifestyle and gadget publications across Europe; consisting of 49 member
magazines spanning 18 European countries. The HTC Touch Diamond was elevated
above the competition thanks to its combination of innovative design and
impressive functionality, applauded by EISA members.
Florian Seiche, Vice President HTC Europe, commented: "We are excited to
have received this accolade from EISA. HTC is committed to innovation and
the Touch Diamond continues to stretch the limits of mobile technology by
integrating advanced functionality into a thin and compact design achieving
the ultimate in high performance."
The driving concept behind the innovation of the Touch Diamond was to set a
new standard for integrating advanced mobile capability into a small and
attractive package. The HTC Touch Diamond targets the no-compromise, tech-savvy
consumer who demands the performance of a smartphone without the aesthetic
compromise that many other devices on the market require.
