We have all read a lot of hype surrounding the HTC Touch Diamond and recently a lot of negative comments on how it actually performs, well we have had some hands on experience over the last week and its definitely a phone that will split opinions right down the middle. Read on for our full review and find out our opinion on this VGA Windows Mobile Professional device.

Youtube on a Windows Mobile is always been something of an art to get working. Hopefully no more if you follow this link. XDA developers has done it again with Youtubeplay.
I’ll be testing this over the next few days and will let you know if its worth going after.
Thanks to Pocketnow for the heads up.
Sieraa Modro from GottaBeMobile has got a great video review of the new iPaq 900 series business communicator. The iPAQ 900 series was scheduled to launch today and this video is well worth watching, check it out after the break.
The SanDisk Sansa Fuze will be the third in a line of portable media player devices that we have reviewed from SanDisk. In the past we have reviewed the Sansa e270 and the Sansa View. The Fuze is their new baby offering similar features to the previous models but in a smaller, neater package and with a claimed 24 hr playback battery life.
The Fuze has a 1.9″ 220 x 176 pixel display (not 240×320 as I stated in the video) and definitely has an iPod Nano look to it. I’m reviewing the 2GB model which is a bit low in capacity for me but there are 4GB and 8GB models available. The 2GB variant retails at a reasonable £55.
Im working on the review at the moment so for now, here’s my unbox video:

Ok it is a slow news day we get it, but I saw this and it cheered me up no end. iCarta have released the ultimate iPod and iPhone dock accessory for the bathroom. This great bit of kit will charge your iPhone or iPod, play your favourite tunes and always be in reach when you need it most.
Possibly one of the most common questions that I have been asked this week by email and through comments posted on the site is how to soft reset the HTC Touch Diamond.
Seems that many think that the Diamond doesn’t have a soft reset button and that the only way to reset a hung device is to pop the battery out and put it back in.
However, this isn’t the case. The Diamond does indeed have a reset button that you can press with your stylus, it’s just in a slightly unusual place. Don’t go poking your stylus in the two holes on the bottom of the device, neither of these are the reset button. The square hole is where you attach a lanyard or phone charm and the round one next to the USB connector is the MIC. Don’t go forcing your stylus in the MIC hole – we’ve heard that some people have already damaged their phones because of this.
In actual fact that reset button is located just under the bit where the stylus slides in. If you remove the stylus you’ll see a little red button and the word reset. You can in fact press this button if you poke it with the stylus at an angle but it’s a little easier to get to if you pop the back cover open a bit.

Engadget Mobile has the spec sheet for the Treo 800w. Most seem to be stifling a yawn to this give the Samsung SGH i780 has been there and done that a couple of months before. However you look at it a Treo has always been one step backwards of the cutting edge but always solid and reliable.
The Treo 800w is playing its cards sensibly yet again breaking no new ground. I’m hoping the MMS concern is merely something Sprint is introducing, not across the board. Also, this model seems to do away with the 2.5mm headphone jack, much like HTC’s one USB connector for all connections.
No price as of yet, however they seem to believe will be shipping on the 21st July. Radio Shack and Best Buy are are also tipped to join in.
Can’t imagine seeing an Iphone sitting on a shelf in Currys or Argos in the UK for some reason. Perhaps Tesco or Sainsburys will be picking it up.
