Integrating innovative simplicity with unique style and an intuitive interface, HTC Touch Diamond2 balances function, form and cutting-edge technology to personalize the communication and mobile Internet experience.
HTC TouchFLO 3D Integrated with Windows Mobile
The HTC Touch Diamond2 utilizes HTC?s latest TouchFLO 3D interface. TouchFLO 3D has been more deeply integrated into a customized version of Windows Mobile 6.1 to deliver more consistency throughout Windows Mobile applications and menus. Focused on making navigation easier and more intuitive, TouchFLO 3D brings important information to the top-level user interface, including quick access to people, messaging, email, photos, music and weather. As part of this improved Windows Mobile integration the touch focus areas have been enlarged to be more finger-touch friendly.
Bringing People Together
With the HTC Touch Diamond2, HTC is introducing a new people centric communication approach, providing a single contact view that displays the individual conversation history of contacts regardless of whether voice, text or email were used. This can be viewed from the contact card or the in-call screen during a phone conversation, ensuring the latest communication contact-by-contact is always at hand.
Simplifying How People Access Their Information
Continuing its commitment to making the mobile Internet easier and more enjoyable, the HTC Touch Diamond2 introduces HTC?s Push Internet technology. HTC Push Internet alleviates slow downloading and rendering of Web pages on a mobile phone. Users can pre-select their favorite Websites to get immediate access to them when needed.
More Powerful Yet Compact and Elegant
The HTC Touch Diamond2 is the next step in the evolution of the successful HTC Touch Diamond. Crafted to fit perfectly into the hand, the Touch Diamond2 evolves the compact design and iconic style of the original HTC Touch Diamond. It incorporates a larger 3.2-inch high-resolution wide-screen VGA display for a greater viewing area in a design just 13.7mm thick. The phone also includes a new touch sensitive zoom bar for even faster zooming of Web pages, emails, text messages, photos or documents.
Leveraging HTC?s TouchFLO 3D experience combined with a people centric communication approach and HTC?s new Push Internet technology, HTC Touch Diamond2 offers an advanced touch experience that is optimized for one-hand use.
With fifty-percent better battery life, a five mega-pixel auto and touch focus camera, expandable memory, gravity sensor and an ambient light sensor, the Touch Diamond2 brings the most sophisticated capabilities to a broad consumer audience looking for the professional benefits of a smartphone without sacrificing size, looks or functionality.
