Touch Diamond is now available for purchase
A few online shops now offer the HTC Touch Diamond for purchase. This comes a few days earlier than the beginning of June, which was the scheduled release date, but obviously those stores were able to get their hands on the Diamond before the competition.

The Diamond is the second-generation Touch phone, with lots of improvements in both hardware and software aspect. It runs on Windows Mobile 6.1, has advanced home screen plug-in, features great Internet browser based on Opera and is supposed to be as responsive as the iPhone, something untypical for WM smartphone. Check out its launch coverage report, for many photos, information and videos.

The price at the moment varies depending on the shop and is aroun $780 to $900, which is quite reasonable for such high-end phone. Once it launches with carriers around the world, the Diamond is expected to become a hit, and that is why HTC predicted that 3 million units will be sold before the end of the year. It will also be one of the main reasons for Windows Mobile smartphones’ increased sales.

I hope you know this is not an iPhone nor was the manufacturer Apple. This has the WM 6.1 platform.

Apple users are scum of the earth and the iphone is a over priced door stop. Get off your high horse and step into the real world.

THE US GSM CARRIERS SUCK. THEY ARE STILL OUTADATED GPRS and ONLY A FEW SPOTS offer EDGE... SO IF YOU ARE ASKING 3G SUCH AS UMTS/WCDMA FEATURES -- FORGET ABOUT IT... LIKE I SAID USA GSM OPERATORS SUCK ...

Ok, not to sound like an idiot, but i want to get my stories straight. This phone has 3g, but it is only working in Europe/Asia. Correct? Anyway i heard a North American version is coming out "later in 2008" so we'll wait and see.
