HTC Touch Diamond CDMA Review

0. phoneArena 27 Apr 2009, 10:12 posted on

Out of the numerous companies that manufacture Windows Mobile based smartphones, HTC continues to hit the mark with innovative products. We were highly impressed with the first HTC Touch Diamond we reviewed last year, though it was a GSM import, and then later with the CDMA variant that became available through Sprint. Now Verizon has followed suite with their release of their version of the Touch Diamond, and we’re glad to say that they got it right this time...

This is a discussion for a review. To read the whole review, click here

i have noticed that in the specs, it has the same size as the VZW TP, but is it really? could you guys do an actual measurement for the thickness? or if anyone has this phone, could you measure and post it up?

I was thinking the same thing. The GSM Diamond was like, 11mm thick. Sprint's was like 14mm. There's no way that Verizon's Diamond is 18mm thick, like the Touch Pro's.

VZW People: The Diamond for VZW is .55", the Touch Pro for VZW is .71", for comparison sake the Omnia is .52" Thick. Sprint People: the Diamond for Sprint is .60", the Touch Pro for Sprint is.71" for comparison sake the TreoPRO is .50" Thick. Geez. lol

Thank you for your comment. We have measured the thickness of the Verizon Touch Diamond and it is approximately 0.55" to 0.60". The Verizon Touch Pro is slightly thicker at 0.71".

why are there no specs listed for the phone? and all cdma phones in the touch series currently use the 1340mah battery... to be honest, im surprised there was a review done on a device that already had a reviewm (cdma diamond) without mention of any real differences (outside of the microsd card, which is a definite plus)...

if you notice this review is pretty much a rehash of the first, with updates for the differences between the two

why do windows phones keep getting such high reviews? what do you guys smoke? innovative? its the pro w/otu a keyboard. its also too small to effectively type on for long periods of time. windows phones are boomerangs and bricks. at least HTC made this one look like the non selling brick its going to be. quit giving windows phones such high marks.
