Touch Diamond2 Taiwan
HTC has announced that the Touch Diamond 2 is set to launch in Taiwan later this month. The touchscreen handset will carry a price of NT$21,900 (~$650 USD) and will ship with an 8GB memory card. HTC improved the specs from the last model, with an expanded screen size of 3.2-inches and 480 by 800 pixel resolution. The device also sports a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and a new touch-sensitive zoom strip underneath the display.
The Touch Diamond 2 offers an updated version of TouchFLO, with features such as Push Internet that auto-caches frequently visited sites. Data connections can be established via Wi-Fi or 3G over 7.2Mbps HSDPA.
European countries should follow the Asian launches later this spring, while a North American version could arrive in the summer.
