Updated: Added auto-rotate and YouTube info, added link to HTC site.

HTC today announced the Touch Diamond, a finger-touch device with a new HTC user interface based on Windows Mobile 6.1. The thin device has HDPSA/HSUPA, a VGA display with auto-rotation, and a custom YouTube application. It will be available from all major European carriers in June, and most of HTC's major carrier partners worldwide later in the year. The new TouchFLO 3D user interface includes an extensive interface with special finger-touch versions of major applications. Carriers can have custom themes and applications fully integrated into TouchFLO 3D. The Touch Diamond also has a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, 4GB of on-board memory, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, and GPS.

iPhone killer :p

Yeah, I said it. ๐Ÿ˜› Someone has to say it for every phone like this. But seriously, it's damn close.
I think you are right...Now to really see hands-on functions (ex: touch screen text messaging and touch sensitivity). ๐Ÿคจ
This wont work in the US for 3G - it kills nothing, unfortunately.
this phone will be the battery killer. ๐Ÿคฃ
this isn't going nto do anything to the iPhone while it's on GSM, especially WGSM bands.

put it on US CDMA, now we've got a lethal threat to the iPhone
