Vodafone HTC Touch Diamond

Feature rich Windows Mobile 6.1 device utilising HTC’s new Touchflow UI. This device is in a tablet form factor meaning it is touch screen only. The Diamond surpasses the iPhone in all aspects, the key differentiator is the inherent flexibility of the Diamond. It comes loaded with Vodafone Email Plus and the Vodafone Sat Nav program. Launch expected in July

As you can see from the clipping above, Vodafone are now expecting a July launch. I don’t suppose the oher 4 networks will be too far behind with a similar announcement, I’ve been keeping an eye on Orange for the past few weeks so I’ll let you know the minute I notice any changes!
