Whats is the HTC Diamond’s screen like in the sun?

image One of the questions many people have been asking is what is the screen in sunlight? Dave Ciccone has tested the view ability of the screen in direct sunlight and found the results to be very suprising compared with other Windows Mobile phones where you cannot read the screens at all.

HTC Touch Diamond in Orange Catalog

The HTC Touch Diamond is the one device that everyone seems to be talking about and lusting after at the moment and today I discovered that the phone maybe a step closer to launch on the Orange network, as it appears in their latest (June) catalog as one of the devices in the ‘coming soon’ section.

As you can see from the scan above it looks like Orange are simply calling it the HTC Diamond, dropping touch from it’s name.

No official release date from Orange but our sources suggest that it will be sometime this month (June).

We should be getting our review unit in the next few days so please let us know if you have any questions or if there is anything specific that you would like us to cover.
