Review: HTC Touch Diamond
The HTC Touch Diamond is a solid but not stellar Windows Mobile device. With the TouchFLO user interface, it is far more user-friendly to interact with. You can ignore the Windows Mobile software most of the time and rely on HTC's software to get done what you need, while still having the power of WinMo lurking underneath the covers when you need it.
The lack of a 2.5mm or 3.5mm headset jack is disappointing, and will surely prevent some users from buying this device. It is really a shame, because HTC did a good job with the media player, YouTube client and Sprint TV. People are going to want to consume media on this device, but using the adapter really takes away from the experience.
Despite having 3.2 megapixels to work with, the Diamond's camera only takes average pictures, and the slowness of the camera software will surely cause users to miss good picture opportunities.

But for those who want a small WinMo device that covers the basics, the Touch Diamond is better than many others.
