HTC Touch Diamond officially revealed

HTC has just ripped off the covers on their new Touch Diamond cell and there’s no doubting it’s a fully specced beast of a smartphone.Insi

Inside that 51mm wide bod’ you’ll find a slew of cracking features that’ll make Apple blush. Along with Bluetooth 2.0, Wi–Fi and GPS, you’ll find HSDPA for speeds up to a whacking 7.2 Mbps. You hear that Jobsy?

Then there’s the 3.2MP snapper, a touchscreen which lets you zoom in and out by circling clockwise and anti–clockwise and tilt sensors for playing a stack of games on–board.

You get 4GB of on–board storage, 192MB RAM and an ambient light sensor so you don’t end up squinting every time youu get a text or want to browse the net.

OS–wise, it’s running Windows Mobile 6.1, but our people on the inside tell us this is a fully customised version that gives the Big M’s mobile effort a proper makeover. It even uses Opera instead of IE.

It’s made of stainless steel and has more than a passing resemblance to the Nokia Prism round the back. It’s yours in June, exclusively on Orange, with a price still to be announced. Don’t expect it to be cheap though.
