On Tuesday. HTC unveiled its new flagship phone, the HTC Touch Diamond, a rival to the Apple iPhone, notable for "unmistakable style, meticulous craftsmanship, compact size, game-changing Internet and its new captivating 3D touch interface called TouchFLO 3D," according to the manufacturer.
TouchFLO 3D provides animated access to people, messaging, email, photos, music, weather and more. In addition, HTC is introducing a new touch-sensitive control for interacting with Touch Diamond.
With the introduction of the Touch Diamond, HTC delivers broadband-like speeds with HSDPA 7.2 Mbps and HSUPA wireless connectivity. Committed to improving Web browsing, HTC provides a new customized mobile Web browser that enables easy viewing and effortless navigation of websites. Users can zoom and pan Websites with one-hand and automatically view optimized content that has been specially created to fit the display. Turning the device sideways automatically rotates the web page view from a portrait to landscape view.
In addition to Web browsing, the Touch Diamond includes a customized new, HTC-developed, YouTube application for watching a variety of user generated video content as well as utilizing Google Maps for mobile for mapping and traffic data.
The 2.8 inch display is said to provide near-print quality viewing that enables beautiful Web browsing and viewing of photographs. The built-in camera includes an optical auto-focus lens. Other features include advanced wireless and auto sensor screen pivoting.
