You've read our first look review and after 8 days with the Diamond, we're ready to give you our full review. Short story: TouchFLO 3D sparks some controversy here and there, but the hardware is top notch.
This is HTC's flagship Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional GSM phone featuring TouchFLO 3D. The Diamond sports a very innovative and attractive UI that makes you feel like you're not using Windows Mobile (for the most part a good thing). Beyond the new interface, the HTC Diamond has jaw-dropping good looks and it's amazingly thin, small and light. Yet somehow HTC managed to fit 4 gigs of flash storage, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, non-US 3G and a 3 megapixel autofocus camera. The only drawback is a biggie: the Touch Diamond lacks the 850MHz US GSM band and there's no US 3G support. But HTC tells us a US version will follow in the next few months.
