FCC reveals U.S. HTC Touch Diamond, T-Mobile-bound TyTN II
Recently, HTC officially published new software for the Touch Diamond, which upgraded it from tri-band to a quad-band GSM phone. This is a nice improvement for the U.S. owners, who will now get better coverage for phone calls, but unfortunately, still will not be able to take advantage of the faster 3G data. However, FCC just revealed that another hardware variant of the Diamond will feature 850/1900 MHz UMTS/HSDPA, which will be suitable for usage in AT&T’s network. When this version will be available on the market is still unknown, but HTC has previously noted that it should happen during the second half of the year.

Another new FCC approval reveals a variant of the TyTN II (also known as the Tilt by AT&T). It has the absolute same specifications and design as the original one, but changes the UMTS frequencies and now supports 1700 MHz. This means it will be usable with T-Mobile’s 3G network, which works on this frequency. However, there is no information whether and when it will hit the market.

Maybe in another year, they'll have a large enough 3G network to run it on.

They already have it up and running in NYC so hopefully by the end of the year it will atleast be in the top 25 major cities. Especially if the Xperia comes with the 1700mhz spectrum.

I have read on somewhere that Windows Mobile 6.1 implementation work very slow on the device. Anyone knows anything about performance tests? I am tired of buying bad windows mobile devices. Always crash a lot or get to slow! :-( I like the new HTC design, I think is great!

as far as I know 6.1 runs better than 6.0 on most phones...
