It’s all been a little quiet of late. To be honest we’re all waiting for those recently “announced” phones to become “available” phones. The HTC Touch Diamond has, at least, taken a step closer on Vodafone.
Vodafone now joins Orange and T-Mobile in announcing their intention to carry the handset. The handset is sitting proudly on the Vodafone Business section as “Coming Soon”, so let’s hope it drops into the “Personal Customers” area too. It’s pencilled in for a July launch with a Voda-red-and-white TouchFlo 3D interface plus, according to the blurb…
“Feature rich Windows Mobile 6.1 device utilising HTC’s new Touchflow UI. This device is in a tablet form factor meaning it is touch screen only. The Diamond surpasses the iPhone in all aspects, the key differentiator is the inherent flexibility of the Diamond. It comes loaded with Vodafone Email Plus and the Vodafone Sat Nav program.”
..and so begins the war of the networks – already we’ve got the mighty Vodafone stating that the Diamond will surpass the iPhone (which will be exclusive in the UK to o2).. ;)
While I’m here, I must say a big congrats to Matt and Tracy over at tracyandmatt.co.uk on the birth of their daughter Chloe. After meeting Matt for the first time at the HTC Touch Diamond launch event I can say that he’s a thoroughly nice bloke and I wish him and his new family the best.
