the great success of the
Diamond, today in Barcelona HTC announced the HTC Touch Diamond2. Building
upon the iconic design of the first HTC Touch Diamond, the HTC Touch Diamond2 is
the next step in the evolution. Crafted to fit perfectly into the hand, the
Touch Diamond2 evolves the compact design and iconic style of the original HTC
Touch Diamond. It incorporates a larger 3.2" high-resolution wide-screen VGA
display for a greater viewing area in a design just 13.7mm thick. The phone also
includes a new touch sensitive zoom bar for even faster zooming of Web pages,
emails, text messages, photos or documents.
Sporting Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, the HTC Touch Diamond2 features a
Qualcomm MSM7200A CPU at 528 MHz, a 5 megapixel main camera and a 3.2" TFT-LCD
WVGA touchscreen at 480x800 pixels. At a size of 10.80 x 5.31 x 1.14 cm the
device weights 117 g only, including the 1100 mAh LiIon battery.
Leveraging HTC's TouchFLO 3D experience combined with a people-centric
communication approach and HTC's new Push Internet technology, the Touch
Diamond2 offers an advanced touch experience that is optimized for one-hand use.
With fifty-percent better battery life, a five mega-pixel auto focus camera,
expandable memory, gravity sensor and an ambient light sensor, the Touch
Diamond2 brings the most sophisticated capabilities to a broad consumer audience
looking for the professional benefits of a smartphone without sacrificing size,
looks or functionality.
The HTC Touch Diamond2 will be available to customers across major European
and Asian markets in early Q2-2009 with broader global availability coming later
in the year. A price wasn't announced today.
