HTC Diamond with new photos and information
HTC definitely is not the best in keeping its secrets. In addition to the previous information on the Diamond and Raphael, here come the new high-resolution photos of the former. It is not only piano black, but its back has a Diamond pattern, to remind of its name. The Italian site, mentions some of its specifications, but as it is not officially announced yet, we cannot guarantee they are correct. It is said to be a global GSM/3G (HSDPA 7.2Mbps) Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional smartphone with 2.8" VGA display, 3-megapixel camera and additional VGA one for video calling. The internal memory is 4GB with microSD slot for expansion, thechipset is Qualcomm MSM7201 with processor running at 528 MHz and it features Bluetooth v2.0, WiFi, aGPS and FM radio. An innovation for HTC is a sensor controlling the orientation of the display. All this is claimed to be packed into dimensions of 99 x 51 x 10.7 mm (3.9 x 2 x 0.42 inches).

Does it open with keyboard inside?

4. unregistered

It's eGPS, not aGPS. casycats: No, but Raphael does. Pocketme: It's a render, not a Photoshop. And an official HTC render at that.

aGPS is assisted gps ... what is eGPS?

13. unregistered

eGPS is Enhanced works similarly but better than aGPS and can get help get a satellite fix in about 4 seconds. It also takes the battery equivalent of less than 1 second of talk time to operate.

No, as it is also going to T-Mobile. There are two versions of the Diamond for both CDMA and GSM, just as there are two versions of the Touch.
