HTC Touch Diamond delayed

Since starting my review of the HTC Touch Diamond many of you have dropped me a line to ask when you’ll be able to get your hands on your own.

The latest news that I have from HTC is that the Diamond has been delayed for up to two weeks. We’re now looking at a worst case 23rd of June for official UK stock. I say UK stock as I have been told that some UK retailers are selling devices imported from Hong Kong.

The official line from HTC is that any HTC Touch Diamond handsets on sale outside of Hong Kong will be grey market imports from that country. These devices were not ordered directly from HTC or their distributors. It also seems that the devices can’t be registered on htc.com and therefore the warranty will not be honoured.

I’m still hoping to get my retail Diamond early next week but I’ll keep you posted!

Symbian S60 Touch UI Video Demo

image Just watched this which I caught over at all about symbian, its an S60 Touch UI demo video with many examples of the UI in action. Good stuff, although dragging down the web browser screen to make the content move up seems counter-intuitive, along with using a stylus, Windows Mobile users want to move away from that so Symbian needs to think more about that one.

One thing that springs to mind here is that all the major players in the smart phone market have really upped their game since the launch of the iPhone. Its great to see the innovations at all the different platforms and love or hate the iPhone you have to say its done all consumers a lot of good. Video after the break.

3G iPhone firmware leaked: tri-band HSDPA and GPS are go

It’s easy to take for granted the 3G iPhone’s launch at this point. After all, Steve said it was "coming later this year," as did a number of prominent mobile executives. And then there’s been the barrage of carrier announcements, many in international markets that use UMTS and have zero support for the iPhone as we know it today. But the fact of the matter is we’ve had very little to go on by way of material evidence — until now.
