CNet: HTC Touch Diamond Review

CNet writes: "The HTC Touch Diamond for Sprint showed up a little early to the CTIA Fall 2008 party, after a certain news outlet leaked the information prematurely. However, our concern wasn't so much over the broken news but, rather, would Sprint's version be better than the unbearably slow unlocked Touch Diamond we reviewed back in late June? And the answer is yes. The Sprint Touch Diamond is noticeably snappier, though the Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone can still get bogged down when too many applications are running. You do get the boost of Sprint's EV-DO Rev. A network and wireless options aplenty, with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS. There's plenty to keep you entertained, too, with support for the carrier's multimedia services and a dedicated YouTube application."

The good:
+The HTC Touch Diamond for Sprint offers better performance and supports Sprint's EV-DO Rev
+A network and multimedia services
+The Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone also features the cool TouchFlo interface and has integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS

The bad:
-While performance is greatly improved over the unlocked Touch Diamond, there's still some sluggishness.
-The virtual keyboard is cramped and may give some users problems
-The Touch Diamond also doesn't offer an expansion slot
