HTC Touch Diamond2 now in stock

HTC_Touch_Diamond2_G We have just received notification from our friends Clove Technology that the HTC Touch Diamond2 is now in stock and ready for next day delivery.

You can order it now for a price £342.00 plus Vat and they ship worldwide. The version available will be the European version so it will not support the 3G bands outside of Europe unless they are the same so in the USA for example the device will work as an Edge only device.

You can find out more information at Clove and watch out for our un-boxing and review as soon as we receive ours.

HTC Touch Diamond2 unboxing and preview video

Although it was only announced a few months ago at MWC, it feels like I’ve been waiting ages to get my hands on the HTC Touch Diamond2. I guess I must just be impatient to replace my original Diamond!

Yesterday I managed to get my hands on a pre-release version of the Diamond2 which I’m going to use to start off my review of the handset. This pre-release unit is final hardware but there will be a few more tweaks to the ROM before the final version goes on sale in the next few days.

I’ve had the Diamond2 for less than 24 hours so far and I have to say that I like what I see. I’m happy that the back is now flat rather than angular like the original Diamond and despite the larger screen, larger battery and the inclusion of the MicroSD card socket HTC have managed to keep the overall size and weight down so that it’s not much bigger or heavier than the Diamond and still retains the slim-appeal.

So take a look at the video below. It’s a little long but I take you on a tour around the hardware and then have a look at some of the software changes and the new TouchFlo 3D stuff.
