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.
Summary: Capitalizing on the success of the HTC Touch Diamond, HTC has released its long-awaited successor, the Touch Diamond2. Distancing itself away from the cheap plastic finish that the original Diamond sported, the new Diamond2 comes with an aluminum finish that makes it much more professional looking.
