HTC Touch Diamond vs Diamond2

It may have only been announced a few weeks ago but the lucky guys over at CNet Asia have already managed to get their hands on the HTC Touch Diamond2.

I’m still a big fan of the HTC Touch Diamond so when I heard about the Diamond2 I was pretty pleased to hear that the updated (or ‘refreshed’) version wouldn’t be much larger than its predecessor. So if like me you are wondering what the two will look like side-by-side then take a look at the photos the CNet guys managed to take.

As you can see from the image above, the Diamond2 is a little longer than the Diamond. This is mainly because of the WVGA (480×800) screen in the Diamond2 vs the VGA (480×640)  screen in the Diamond. In terms of the width the two are the same.

Notice that the back of the Diamond2 is now flat. Gone are the facets of the Diamond, thank goodness! They were nice to look at but totally impractical!

The Diamond2 is a little thicker than the Diamond, looking at this photo perhaps 3mm more? I’m guessing that this is because of the now built in memory card slot on the Diamond2 that was missing from the Diamond?
