    Re: HTC Touch Diamond worth it?

    I would definitely go for it, I'm really happy with mine. The phone is sleek and it fits nicely in your hand. Everything works and flows well, the battery life is a little weak especially using bluetooth and email (at a refresh rate of 1 hour). But overall, this is everything I could ask for. WELL I wish it had the vibrate touch screen thing.

    Re: HTC Touch Diamond worth it?

    Oh and to answer your questions, HTC is a big brand name and their devices are pretty solid, I have plenty of experience with them because I repair them for a major wireless company. Also as for GPS, at least on Sprint (yeah this is where I work), it works awsome especially with Telenav (Sprint Navigation). Telenav may have improved or the GPS chipsets are better at location recording, but it will tell me where I need to turn well before the turn and unlike before it seems I have plenty of time to get to another lane if I have to.

    Re: HTC Touch Diamond worth it?

    To me, the problem with having no keyboard is a big negative.

    It is not a good phone if you are going to be messing around with it or doign any heavy typing/texting, especially since the screen is not multitouch.

    The lack of external storage is a large negative for me as well. While it is true that the phone has 4gigs of built in memory, it has no slots to plugs in any additional and external memory, so you can never expand its capacity or be able to remove the card or quick access (I set my phone to store all my recorded audio/video, documents, pictures, etc on my MicroSD card so I can easily plug it into anything else and access all my files).

    That being said however, the Diamond is a great phone all other things considered. It functions well as well as looks stylish, and is a fairly small PocketPC phone to boot.

    It's alternative would be of course the HTC Touch Pro, which is basically a Diamond with tv out, extermal memory slot, and keyboard, but its much much bulkier and of course costs more.

    Get the pro, the keyboard and external microSD slot is worth it. The GPS is fine in southern cal, along with phone reception.

    Diamond and G1 are like comparing apples and oranges, you really can't say one is better because they are completely different.

    The Diamond has no keyboard and runs Windows Mobile, and is has a frontend that is designed to look stylish with toushscreen-only input in mind.

    The G1 has a keyboard and tuns on Android, and is designed for more complex or business use in mind rather than looks.

    .... which is why I prefer the Touch Pro because its like a Windows Mobile phone that has all of the above XD
