an unofficial ROM patch which appeared last week, HTC has now released a ROM
update in Hong Kong which officially adds GSM 850 MHz to the HTC Touch Diamond
making it a quadband GSM smartphone know which can be used virtually anywhere in
the GSM world. In addition to adding GSM 850 MHz support, ROM v1.93.831.1 WWE
also fixes some bugs HTC Touch Diamond users have seen already, like a no signal
issue, no action while touching navigator control in camera mode as well as SMS
sound alert notification delay issue. Furthermore it's said to increase the
overall device performance including improved audio quality after audio booster
is enabled, improved TouchFLO 3D tab switching and movement speed or improved
home page loading speed.
The new ROM build is now available from HTC's Hong Kong support site. It
didn't appeared on other support sites yet nor have I heard about a single
operator which is offering the new ROM for OEM Diamonds already. Nevertheless,
it should be just a matter of time until the new ROM build is available from all
HTC support sites as well as carriers.
