No Longer in the Rough: A Review of the HTC Touch Diamond 2

Posted by Don Tolson in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 07:00 AM

Comparison Shots...

As you can see in the accompanying photos, HTC has done a masterful job of redesigning the controls interface on the Touch Diamond 2 so that it can accommodate the much larger screen without significantly increasing the overall size of the unit. My current daily workhorse is an AT&T Fuze (aka the Touch Pro) so I included it for size comparisons.

Figure 9: Here is the Touch Diamond 2 (on the left) side-by-side with the Touch Pro. You can see that the TD2 is only slightly longer than the TP. Although it looks slightly wider, it actually doesn't feel that way. The TD2 and TP feel the same width in the hand.

Figure 10: Yes, the TouchPro is thicker and heavier, mainly due to the slide out keyboard. Both are just about the same length.

Figure 11: Here's a shot comparing each of the screens. The TouchPro's screen looks to have deeper, richer colours, but I think that's due to the higher contrast provided by the black screen. Here you can see the benefit of the greater screen landscape on the Touch Diamond 2.
