Summary: Love the phone, just can get hold of basic software download, anyone know of a nice place to get software from? good multi format media player, gsm tracking software, gps software & software measuring acceleration? - and G,s also aviation gps if possible?
Summary: The Touch Diamond 2 by HTC is a great phone with the quality and mobility of HTC company. It is my 3rd HTC phone. The only negative point of this purchase is that when I tried to upgrade it to Windows Mobile 6.5 at the HTC website, it was not available only to my phone because by the serial number, it was made for the India market and in that country the upgrade it is not available so far. That's the negative point. The International Version is from India.
Pros: Screen. This device has TWICE AS MANY PIXELS AS THE IPHONE. The only device that compares (for now) is the Sony X1 that is thicker, heavier and costlier. Combined with Opera and 3G, no need for PDA-optimized webs anymore. Costs less than an iPhone.
Cons: Fast processor sucks up battery life - must charge every night. Flo3d interface sucks - easily deactivated. Must be myopic to fully enjoy the screen. Very few apps using the hardware fully. Virtual keyboard only - slow texting.
Summary: Great.... I started with the xda then came the MDA 2 followed by the HTC TN_NII but this was it just not. Now I have the diamand 2 and finally this is what I was looking for, not the hole time looking grabbing and putting back my stylo.
HTC Touch Diamond2: Buy this phone if you want Windows Mobile
3 October 2009
Summary: Having had both an HTC Diamond and a Sony Xperia X1, I decided to buy the Diamond 2 as it comes with a free upgrade to windows mobile 6.5 as soon as it's released. The current user-interface is great, with slight improvements on the old diamond UI. There are tabs along the bottom you can slide along to acces time, contacts, weather, stocks, photos and music.
Excerpt: I have this phone as a work phone and it substituted the i-mate I was initially given and subsquently broke. I am an avid Windows Mobile user and have been since the first iterations of the smart phone hit the consumer market. My have they come along way. The Touch Diamond 2 looks great and works as it is supposed to. Turning on and setting up the phone's functions is easy to do, especially syncing with your outlook mail.
Pros: great looks, stands out from all the other smartphones, good call quality
