From the package it is clear that HTC now more than ever aim at the design, with the HTC P3700, better known as the HTC Touch Diamond, in order to conquer a larger crowd. The operating system of the HTC Diamond is Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. This new version has undergone several small improvements. Furthermore, the HTC Touch Diamond offers many options. New is the 4GB internal memory and a 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus. In addition, the HTC offers a large touchscreen, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPRS and HSDPA for quick Internet scrolling.

The menu structure looks familiar thanks to the Windows Mobile operating system. On top, you find the starting bar with all the available functions. As we have also seen on the latest HTC phones, the HTC Diamond too has a TouchFLO menu, now called the TouchFLO 3D. The desktop will display a quick access button for the weather, captured pictures, contacts and SMS text messages. This TouchFLO application facilitates the use, since you can now find various functions a lot quicker.

4GB phone memory
The HTC Touch Diamond cell phone clearly shows that HTC have gone in a different direction. Design and user's ease are key words to describe the HTC Diamond. The package, as well as the phone itself carries 'HTC Innovation' written on them. The HTC Touch Diamond mobile phone has 4GB of internal memory at its disposal which cannot be enhanced. This is quite reasonable looking at the current comparable devices, although 8GB would have been a real plus.

The 3.2 megapixel digital camera on board of the phone, has better looking specifications than the results coming from it. The photos are not representative for what is currently possible. The poor dynamic range is probably one of the causes. Internet through HSDPA or WiFi, combined with the Internet Explorer Web browser is perfect on this mobile phone; it's fast and easy. The preinstalled Mobile version of Microsoft Office enhances the user's possibilities in a positive way. Got interested in this HTC Touch Diamond mobile phone?
