Sprint HTC Touch Diamond First Look Review

When we looked at the GSM HTC Touch Diamond that was released overseas in June 2008, we liked what we saw, with a few caveats. The smartphone featured HTC's new TouchFLO 3D user interface, which could be a tad laggy at times (much improved with subsequent ROM updates). It also didn't support high speed data in the US, so we were stuck surfing the web at EDGE speeds, which are comparable to 1xRTT in the Sprint world. The phone's gloss diamond back, though very attractive, attracted and tenaciously held onto fingerprints. Lastly, battery life was OK but not great. Well, say hello to Sprint's little friend, the Sprint HTC Touch Diamond that remedies all these problems. Nice. (Source: Lisa Gade, Mobile Tech Review)
