HTC Touch Diamond2 to ship to Taiwan this month
While the original HTC Touch Diamond goes on sale at Verizon today, as we have reported, plans are being made for the follow-up model to reach retail outlets. The HTC Touch Diamond2 is expected to be shipped to Taiwan for sale this month, according to a report in MobileTechReview. Some of the features that were well received in the original version will be found in the new unit. TouchFLO 3D continues to make it easier for the user to find his way around Windows Mobile 6.1. Areas requiring touch have been made more finger friendly with larger icons. A new screen allows the user to see the communications history between the device's owner and the people he has called, emailed or texted. Another improvement can be found with HTC's new Internet Push feature which speeds up the downloading and rendering of web sites on the mobile browser. At 3.2 inches, the screen is bigger than the 2.8 inches seen on the original Touch Diamond and comes with a new touch sensitive Zoom bar that will allow you to get a closer look at web pages, pictures, emails, texts and other video. Battery life is improved by 50% and the camera has been upgraded to a 5MP shooter. The TouchDiamond2 is expected to cost NT$21,900 ($649 US) with an 8GB memory card in the box. When will we see this lovely piece of technology in the States? So far we have no carrier information, no launch date and no idea when this smartphone will be gracing US stores. But considering that most of the major carriers in the States already now sell the first model, it probably won't be too long before the Touch Diamond2 is for sale in the U.S.
