Windows Mobile 6.5

The HTC Pure is a carrier-branded version of the HTC Touch Diamond2 and ships with Windows Mobile 6.5. One of the new features of WM 6.5 is the new honeycomb layout of the Start menu.

Pocket-friendly

The Pure features a slightly different design than the Touch Diamond2. Though we prefer the look and feel of the Touch Diamond2, the Pure is still an attractive and compact handset.

Onscreen keyboard

The Pure offers an onscreen QWERTY keyboard, including a landscape keyboard. Despite looks, both the portrait and landscape keyboards are pretty easy to use. Still, heavy e-mailers should look at a model with a physical keyboard.

Navigation controls

Below the display you get four navigation buttons and a touch-sensitive zoom bar.
