  • Video: Sony Xperia Panels interface on an HTC Touch Diamond

    A group of tinkers have been hard at work getting the Panels interface from the Sony Xperia working on the HTC Touch HD. Progress is being made at a decent rate, as evidenced by a few YouTube videos that have been released. Why do such a thing? Well, as one of the guys says, “I like the look of this front end alot better than the TF3D.” So, rather than complain about the user… Read More

    BestBuy.com starts shipping unlocked HTC Touch Diamonds

    After right around 2 weeks of offering pre-orders for the unlocked WinMo 6.1 powered HTC Touch Diamond, Best Buy has started taking immediate orders from all the folks out there dying to get in on the TouchFlo 3D action who just can’t bring themselves to hop on Sprint. At a whopping $700 bucks before the extra $50 or so you’ll eat in taxes and shipping, the novelty of living… Read More

    HTC Touch Diamond, Touch Pro get official on Sprint

    We’ve gotten official word from HTC concerning the Touch Diamond and the Touch Pro release dates and prices for the Sprint network. We already kind of figured the launch date for the Diamond to be September 14th, although HTC just says it’ll be “available in September” while we now know that the Touch Pro (seen above) will be available on October 19th. The Touch… Read More

    HTC Touch Diamond to Sprint on September 14th

    While early rumors seemed to indicate that the HTC Touch Diamond would be coming to Sprint on September 2nd, it seems that the actual date will be September 14th instead, according to PC Magazine. The device will cost $249 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate. I’ve been using the European version of the Touch Diamond as my main phone for a while now and it works… Read More

  • Hidden multi-touch feature on HTC Touch Diamond?

    Cool. Looks like the HTC Touch Diamond (and presumably the HTC Touch Diamond Pro) can actually do multi-touch. Apparently it’s just around the navigation buttons that the multi-touch works – not the entire screen, which seems odd. The feature is revealed when using HTC’s Nav Debug Tool but so far doesn’t have any practical use beyond simple testing. However, HTC updates… Read More

  • Hidden multi-touch feature on HTC Touch Diamond?

    Cool. Looks like the HTC Touch Diamond (and presumably the HTC Touch Diamond Pro) can actually do multi-touch. Not only multi-touch on the screen itself, but all the way down around the navi-wheel and buttons. [Update – Apparently it’s just around the navigation buttons that the multi-touch works.] The feature is revealed when using HTC’s Nav Debug Tool but so far… Read More

    HTC about to sell its millionth Touch Diamond


    HTC says it’ll sell over a million Touch Diamonds by the middle of this month…iPhone, who? Even though Apple sold a million iPhone 3Gs in just 3 days, HTC says its still gonna celebrate. Launched in June, the Touch Diamond is HTC’s latest touch-based smartphone, and an HTC representative told PC World that the Touch Diamond is HTC’s fastest selling handset ever. So far… Read More

  • HTC Victor: A flat-back HTC Touch Diamond

    HTC Victor: A flat-back HTC Touch Diamond

    Straight from a blog in a far away land, it appears that HTC has released the “Victor” (looks like in Taiwan only) which appears to be the HTC Touch Diamond, except with a flat back instead of diamond-bumpy, jagged-edge back found on the company’s current model. To that, I say “Hoo-ray!” I’m using the Touch Diamond right now and the back doesn’t cause… Read More

    HTC Touch Diamond to Sprint in early September?

    According to a photo on the SprintUsers.com forum — a photo which apparently came from HowardForums (I couldn’t find it there) — several new handsets will be available on the Sprint network over the coming months. The HTC MP6950, also known as the HTC Touch Diamond, being one that’s apparently hitting September 2nd. If the reportedly leaked photo is legit, we’ll… Read More

    HTC increases Touch Diamond shipments

    HTC CEO Peter Chou spoke at a symposium in Tokyo yesterday where he raised the projected shipment of Touch Diamond devices from two million to three million citing that it would only take seven months to sell three million units. The original Touch took roughly 11 months to sell three million handsets and Chou believes the Touch Diamond will be more popular thus the increase. Read More

    HTC Touch Diamond accessories coming soon

    Just got word from Matt of Tracy and Matt’s Blog that he’s been able to grab a shot of one of the upcoming accessories for the HTC Touch Diamond. From Matt’s post… “I must say that this looks super sexy with its glossy black finish. You’ll also notice the decent looking set of headphones in that photo above which, in my mind, implies that the dock/cradle… Read More

  • Video: UI and photo fun with the HTC Touch Diamond

    Here’s some more video of the Touch Diamond’s interface. The various devices I’ve seen have at times been a little laggy with the photos and the tilt sensor — stuff like that. It may have to do with the fact that they’re connected to the Wi-Fi network here along with 150 other people. Hopefully the production versions will be a bit snappier. The device demo’d… Read More
