The Wall Street Journal has published a review of the technically-unannounced HTC Touch Diamond for Sprint. The review confirms that most specs match the GSM version, including a 3.2 megapixel auto-focus camera. HTC's TouchFLO 3D UI is complemented by an Opera web browser and special YouTube client. The Touch Diamond will be available this month with Sprint for $250 with a two-year contract, after rebate.

iphone review?

was this an iphone review or touch diamond review?! i think the article heading is wrong


seriously this article is like watching foxnews covering the DNC.
No, this is a htc touch diamond review. thats for sure
I would say the same thing if I was getting free Apple stuff/money.
off topic, but fyi... fox news is the only news station that doesn't filter and tell people/politicians/celebrities what they can and can't say. Other media groups make sure everything that is said is anti-conservative.
I'm so lost... how did we end up talking about an iPhone????

wow "slammer" you almost sounded smart,almost...

first off, face it every new high end touch screen device will be compared to iphone.. 2nd THERE IS NO PHONE CALLED A RAPHEAL..I understand they called it that a few months ago but brush up on your tech news there buddy...the rapheal is the TOUCH PRO.. aka Diamond with a slide out keyboard
...for correcting and clarifing my error. What I really meant to say was:

I can't wait for the TOUCH PRO...aka Diamond with a slide out keyboard which was The Raphael a few months ago then The Herman then to the TOUCH PRO...aka Diamond with a slide...
Rapaheal is touch pro
Victor is the Diamond
...and just because someething is going to be done, doesnt make it right.

Slammer is right, windows mobile is not trying to be the iphone, nor is the iphone trying to be windows mobile.

The dare or instinct is a much better comparrision in my op...

This is the worst review I have ever read. The review was based on two different types of phones and software that were not designed to compete. What ignorant people was chosen to review the htc diamond? Windows 6.1 which has just been released is out dated? Yeah... the operating system supports programs that allow you to ssh into your linux box or server. If that is not good enough... download vncviewer and view your desktop on your phone. Yeah outdated... Rolling Eyes
The HTC touch can do everything that I have ever been able to throw at it, ssh, vnc, irc, websites, flash video sites with skyfire (Just how the video would play on a desktop computer).
This guy should stick to reviewing apple only products that way he cannot show how ig...
Yo. knx2. Mossberg removed your comment from the article! Laughing I guess they couldn't handle the logic of truth. I left a nice lengthy comment too. I wonder how long that will stay up? biased idiots!

Did WSJ actually have the Sprint version?!

I question whether Walt actually had the Sprint version, no where in their alleged review did they mention having the Sprint version. The WSJ review (if you want to call it that) said they reviewed the Diamond, which will be available on Sprint, not saying they actually had the Sprint version. According to Computerworld the Sprint version will make it's debut on Sept 10th at the CTIA trade show in San Francisco.

The question is, how would Walt get Sprints version before it's [B]American debut[/B]? If WSJ did not have a Sprint version they need to make a retraction, it is clear many who read that review are under the impression WSJ did indeed have a Sprint version.

And now WSJ will review...

The iphone vs highway roadkil. the roadkill lacks the interface acrobatics of the apple product. It's ability to switch from portait to landscape mode does not match the swiftness of the iphone no matter how much we moved the body. We also were not able to access the internet with the roadkill. This was a great disappointment in our opinion. so therefore we feel that iphone is clearly the winner in this test folks. do not by the roadkill.
