There have been no official announcements about the U.S. availability of the HTC Touch Diamond2, or which carrier will pick up the Windows Mobile smartphone. You can purchase it unlocked for $600, but we'd wait for a U.S. 3G version.
The Touch Diamond2 is ever so slightly bigger and heavier than its predecessor, at 4.25 inches high by 2.09 inches wide by 0.54 inch thick and 4.15 ounces. However, the smartphone has a fairly slim profile so you should be able to slip it into a pants pocket.
The Touch Diamond2's WVGA display is the real attention grabber. It's big and sharp at 3.2 inches and 480x800 pixels. Images and text pop with color and clarity, and the touch screen is quite responsive. It also has a built-in accelerometer.
Below the display, there are four navigation controls: Talk and End/Home keys, Start menu shortcut, and a back button. There's also a new touch-sensitive zoom bar that lets you zoom in and out of Web pages, pictures, messages, and documents.
