HTC Touch Diamond Review

The HTC Touch,with its TouchFLO interface, launched just before the iPhone in June 2007; was certainly no iPhone in terms of user interface. What leaps and bounds from HTC in just a year: TouchFLO 3D on the Diamond and upcoming Touch Pro has considerably narrowed the gap. No, it's not as brain-dead simple to understand and use, and we have a few quibbles with a few UI design decisions, but it's incredibly beautiful, fun to learn (yes, there's a short learning curve) and functional. Users new to Windows Mobile will likely get the most out of it, because TouchFLO 3D makes getting to common tasks that much more intuitive and easy (think of it as a significant extension to the custom home screen and applications on the non-touch screen T-Mobile Shadow made by HTC). HTC says they'll be putting TouchFLO 3D on several devices in the future, so the Diamond is our first taste. Likely, like TouchFLO "classic", it will evolve and improve with each new device's release. We normally don't start off a Windows Mobile phone review with a discussion of the interface, but it's hard to separate the UI from the device in the case of the Diamond since TouchFLO 3D sets it apart from all prior Windows Mobile devices, including those made by HTC (and they make most of the WinMo phones sold in the US).  (Source: Lisa Gade, Mobile Tech Review)
