HTC Touch Diamond officially announced


Looks like the leaked photos of the HTC Touch Diamond were real. This morning HTC held a press conference to officially introduce the handset.

The Touch Diamond uses a new interface technology HTC is calling TouchFLO 3D which heavily emphasizes one-touch browsing and single-finger dialing.

Features of the Touch Diamond will include:

  • Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system
  • VGA screen
  • Quad-band HSDPA 7.2
  • Accelerometer that can rotate pictures as you rotate the phone
  • One-touch music playback with animated music browser
  • Heavily-animated weather forecast app
  • Opera web browser that reformats the screen when zooming
  • Youtube app and content playback
  • No normal headphone jack–instead it will use HTC’s proprietary USB dongle

No pricing info yet but if you live in Europe looks like you’ll have first dibs on it thanks to carrier Orange.
