Excerpt: The original Touch Diamond was the best selling Windows Mobile device of all time, and for good reason. It was sleek, sexy, and brought a breadth of finger-friendly enhancements that we had yet to see on a device running Windows Mobile.
Gadling gear review - HTC Touch Diamond2 Windows Mobile smartphone
24 June 2009
Summary: The outside of the phone is stunning - and in my opinion the best looking HTC phone ever made. The phone combines a smooth plastic cover on the back, with sleek stainless steel trim on the front. On the left side is the volume control, on the right is a slot for the stylus.
Excerpt: The HTC Touch Diamond2 is a Windows phone focused on its WVGA touchscreen. Jen Edwards calls it "one of the coolest, sleekest phones I've seen so far."
Pros: Sleek and sexy design, Snappy performance, Amazing TouchFlo interface–you may forget you’re using a Windows Mobile device!
Cons: Voice quality is good, but could be better, Slight disappointment in the camera; under and over exposure seem to be a problem with my test unit, Currently, high cost due to lack of carrier subsidy, but that’s likely to change
Summary: The HTC Touch Diamond2 brings some notable improvements over its predecessor and promises to be a powerful touch-screen smartphone when it finally arrives in the U.S.
Pros: The HTC Touch Diamond2 boasts a sleek design with a larger and sharper display than its predecessor. The enhanced TouchFlo interface makes navigation easier. The Windows Mobile smartphone also features Wi-Fi, GPS, a 5-megapixel camera, and good general performance.
Cons: No U.S. 3G support yet. The onscreen keyboard is a bit cramped and the smartphone lacks a standard headphone jack. Call quality could be better.

Conclusion: As for the exchange functionality that Joy asked for, I am currently writing a review for that topic on the Diamond. Should be ready in a few days, as its quite extensive, and aimed not only for "end users" but also system admins interested in using Windows Mobile devices as an alternative to...
Conclusion: A small note here: The Exchange integration alone is so brilliant, it warrants a review all on its own! If you are serious about using this in a business environment, and want a review, please let us know in the comments section.
