Not only that HTC's new HTC Touch Diamond2 is a design beauty, following HTC's original Touch Diamond design, it's also packed with lots of new features and it's one of the first Windows Phones that features Microsoft's new Windows Mobile 6.5 button requirements which includes, beside the typical call send/end keys, the Windows key. However, the back button (as introduced with earlier HTC Touch smartphones) isn't a Microsoft requirement at all. Nevertheless, the HTC Touch Diamond2 isn't sporting a D-Pad anymore and is therefore following the HTC Touch HD which was HTC's first Touch smartphone without a D-Pad.

Like the original HTC Touch Diamond, the Touch Diamond2 features a glossy housing but the battery cover isn't diamond shaped anymore. The 5 megapixel autofocus camera on the back comes without a supporting photo light and as most of the recent HTC Touch smartphones, also the Touch Diamond2 doesn't have a dedicated camera shutter key anymore:






The European release of the HTC Touch Diamond2 is planned for Q2-2009. Beside T-Mobile, which announced plans to launch the HTC Touch Diamond2 as the T-Mobile MDA Compact V, it's not yet known which other mobile operators might carry the Touch Diamond2 as well.

Also don't miss our short hands-on videoview of the HTC Touch Diamond2 I was able to record  during last week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Cheers ~ Arne
