Some of the older models and VZW phones were under the name UTStarcom but they were also HTC phones.

Almost any phone branded by the carrier in the past on smartphones with keyboards has been made by HTC Verizon. They just started branding their smartphones instead of letting the carriers brand them, they've been making pretty solid phones for quite a while.

Not just Verizon but AT&T as well.

I think I get what he meant. Last year we didn't hear of HTC, now they have some of the hottest phones around. They are everywhere

Did you read the article!?!? "the display is small (2.8”)" ROFL dude

maybe you didn't read the article, the display they were talking about is the touch diamond. They didn't mention this size of this phone and it looks a lot bigger than the diamond's screen. "The Touch Diamond is definitely pretty, but it packs a slew of keys on the front and the display is small (2.8”), although high-res."

according to pdadb (the most trusted pda website in the world), the screen size is 4" 480x800 res. It will support only T-Mobile's 1900GSM. And it will have 5MP Camera (never count on that if it was made for Verizon)

it doesnt matter who makes it, its still a windows device. "look guys, something shiney"" ooooh its soo shiney.. i wanna switch carriers for it!! its the best phone ever!!" nope, its the same as every other phone, just shinier

Shove it troll! I'm so sick of you people who want to hate on anything with windows. We all don't share your opinion and don't all want an iphone. Not like they haven't been having some problems lately recently.

Yea please shove it. It's not like Windows doesn't dominate your life. You've operated it at least once in your lifetime even if you have a MAC so please give it a rest. Windows isn't going anywhere and is here to stay, AND DOMINATE mind you. And the Iphone did not just start having problems...it doesnt even have copy and paste, let alone video recording, so until you can catch up to regular flip phones don't post another comment again ever in your life. And by the way the iphone is the shiny item with nothing to show at all...and yea HTC is really making it hard for me to get a phone. They dont stop and I love it but damn can I get a phone before you release another one I want lol.

20. that "troll" (unregistered)

you guys are hillarious. my comment was actually more in reference to mr. "i bet my right arm its going to be 3x better than that blackberry thunderstorm". Like it or hate it, its just another windows device. It does nothing differently than any other well equiped windows device. and btw, they are all buggy. and for reference, i do not like the iphone much iether :)

that just shows how dumb people can be. If you don't like the phone, you automatically have to have an iphone. That's really stupid. It really gets on my nerves how you said nothing about an iphone and everyone is attacking you. To me it sounds like the Windows people are the real "fanboys." I was suprised when I read, "It's not like Windows doesn't dominate your life....Windows isn't going anywhere and is here to stay, AND DOMINATE mind you. . . ." It really sounds like this guy/girl sold his/her soul to windows. It kind of wierd how Likeabite has such strong feelings. I've seen people who really love their iphone, but i've never heard any of them say the things that Likeabite had to say about Windows. And I'm getting more sick of people complaining about iphone users than I am about people who actually iphones. I don't even see anyone write how iphone is #1, all I hear is "I'm sick of you iphone users blah blah blah blah blah"

41. that "troll" (unregistered)

yup yup. fanboys are fanboys, and it doesnt matter what camp they come from. "their" device is always the best, and everything else is trash. MS and Apple are the same type of companies, they both release minor updates, proclaim them to be the 2nd comming, and then let the chips fall where they may. This is definatly evident in the new iphone3g. They both have their strengths and weaknesses. its ok though

I used to own a Iphone(what a waste)and now I have a HTC touch diamond. This telephone is awesome,easy to handle, and all in all a very nice phone. 4gb is maybe a bit small, but this phone still knocks the Iphone into the dirt.

HTC is looking to be the Nokia of touch phones. From the MDA (which is when i first heard of them) to well, the newest "Touch HD". I mean the HTC touch Diamond and Pro are ace, and to add this to their arsenal. Oh boy! Its hard for me to even keep up with them. Just when you've saved enough for 1 phone, they release 2 better ones. I'm scared to buy 1 now because i feel like they have an even better "Touch Pro" in the works.

My sentiments exactly!!! I was geeked when I saw the new screenshots for Sprint's version of the Touch Pro, and then, while reading on PPCGeeks, I see this effer ... that just decapactitated my thought process. I had my heart set on the Touch Pro ... and now ... I'm so lost. Should I wait for this, because if it is truly coming within the next year (or better -> a Qwerty-equipped cousin, I will save my loot instead of splurging on the Touch Pro.

I would get the Diamond try it for a month, then get the pro 30 day trial will apply to you to get the pro after trying it out for a month!

The phone looks hot. They should have just released this in the first place rather than the original touch, being as they look similar (minus the navigation button on the touch, which enabled them to make the screen bigger).

i hope verizon and at&t and obviously sprint get the touch diamond while T-Mobile gets this. this phone looks hella sick.

Now if HTC would just quit teasing me and come out with this as HTC Touch Pro HD Tilt with slide out keyboard and tilt screen it would stop my nightmares. Why the hell can't I get what I want?

This is a definite must buy. this is by far the prettiest phone that's going to be available.

Sprint would be a fool not to pick this phone up. I for one am going to buy this as soon as it's available.

i don't get the idea of small screen with HD resolution...

posted on 13 Sep 2008, 17:37

44. (unregistered)

I dont think the phone will have HD resolution when watching video. Assuming the videos will play horizontally like the Touch... that would make the resolution 800X400 (400 horizontal lines)... HD resolutions begin at 720 horizontal lines progressive or 1080 interlaced.

Put this out with the a touch pro-style ( but slightly bigger, this thing is almost literally the same size as the iPhone 3G) keyboard, and it'll officially be the first handheld I would be willing to fork over more than seven hundred for.

whats with the "win mo" comments.. seriously are you people educated enough to even make those comments? windows mobil runs circles around everything else and the OS writer doesnt even make their own phones.. they depend on manufacturers and have no control over hardware or processors. notic how apple, rim, nokia and others do well with their phone running so smooth?? BECAUSE THEY MAKE THEIR OWN OS! if MS made their own phones, the other might as well just pack their tents.. just ask sony how MS can destroy you no matter how big you are. MS toys with these companies and makes huge investment (like they did with apple to keep them alive) to keep them around for competition. all these companies have to do is make a 1 gig processor and allow for more ram and you will have a great pda. it's the most configurable OS on the market and you clowns still ask for more. by the way, all you MS haters, you're a dime a dozen. thank god MS exists of we would not be so far ahead in technology today.

you do realize that most of MS's major OS upgrades were done previously on other OS's??? Im not hatin on anyone in particular, as all the companys do this, but MS isnt the king of innovation anymore. but, again, its ok
