Combining HTC's captivating 3D touch-screen experience, the broad functionality of Windows Mobile 6.1 and the largest mobile broadband network in the United States, as expected, today Sprint announced it will soon add two devices to its robust portfolio of Windows Mobile devices: the HTC Touch Diamond and the HTC Touch Pro. Sprint will be the first U.S. wireless carrier to offer both devices. HTC Touch Diamond and HTC Touch Pro set a new benchmark for mobile sophistication, introducing TouchFLO 3D, an unparalleled touch experience that puts live television, weather, E-Mail, photos, contacts, music and more at your fingertips.

Both devices use Opera Mobile 9.5 that enables easy viewing and effortless navigation of Web sites in the way they were designed. As part of this browsing experience, users can zoom and pan Web sites with one hand and automatically view optimized content that has been specially created to fit the display. Using gravity-sensor technology, turning the device sideways automatically rotates the Web page view from a portrait to landscape view.

The HTC Touch Diamond introduces TouchFLO 3D, a dynamic touch-screen experience that puts live television, weather, E-Mail, photos, contacts, music and more at your fingertips. Sporting an elegant design, HTC Touch Diamond offers a high-resolution 2.8" VGA display, smooth Web experience powered by an Opera browser, crisp 3.2 megapixel camera/camcorder and stereo Bluetooth technology.
Ideal for both business and personal use, HTC Touch Diamond leverages the broad functionality of Windows Mobile 6.1 and provides easy access to Sprint-exclusive multimedia content, including Sprint Music Store's quick over-the-air song downloads and Sprint TV with its extensive collection of live and on-demand channels. HTC Touch Diamond will be available beginning in September. It will cost US$ 249.99 with a two-year contract and after a US$ 100 mail-in rebate.

HTC Touch Pro is a professional workhorse that enables mobile professionals to easily balance their professional and personal lives. Along with the features available on HTC Touch Diamond, HTC Touch Pro adds a five-row, slide-out QWERTY keyboard for easy data entry, expandable storage capabilities with a microSD card slot (1 GB card included) and a business card scanner application to automatically capture and convert business card information to contacts using the built-in 3.2 megapixel camera/camcorder.
Additionally, with Windows Mobile 6.1, users have access to security and device management capabilities desired by most business customers when used with Microsoft's System Center Mobile Device Manager solution. HTC Touch Pro will be available Oct. 19 for US$ 299.99 with a two-year contract and after a US$ 100 mail-in rebate.

Cheers ~ Arne
