Rogers gets HTC Diamond

Canada's Rogers wireless provider is now offering the HTC Touch Diamond to customers, becoming the first North American provider to carry a GSM version of the Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro handset. The Touch Diamond features HTC's signature TouchFLO 3D user interface for its 2.8-inch, 640x480 touchscreen, allowing users to personalize their main screen with commonly-used applications.

The Rogers Touch Diamond has the same e-mail support as CDMA versions of the handset, as well as the Opera Internet browser. In addition to Internet and e-mail access, users can connect to Mobile TV services or an integrated YouTube application over Rogers' 3G data network or wireless networks thanks to a built-in Wi-Fi module. The Touch Diamond also sports a 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera, has assisted GPS capabilities and support Bluetooth devices. The Touch Diamond has 4GB of built-in memory for storing videos, music and other files.

Rogers is offering the HTC Touch Diamond for nearly $200, after a $300 promotional discount and with a three-year contract that includes a minimum $45 per month plan.
