This rocks! Who would have thought that Sprint would be the #1 CDMA carrier in picking up all these new Windows Mobile devices. You figure Verizon would get these first, as they did with the Moto Q. I do a decent amount of web browsing on my Mogul and the 640x480 resolution would be a huge improvement. The 128 megs of ram is a no brainer addition and having a flush screen makes finger only operation so much nicer. I was psyched for the Sony Xperia X1 because of the hardware, but I am even more excited for the new HTC Diamond, especially with the new HTC Manilla interface. The Sony panels look nice, but seem gimmicky, imho.

Sprint = the only one that's leaked, not necessary the only or indeed the first CDMA carrier!

So why is the kaiser's successor called the Touch Pro?

Don't make sense to me...

Kinda makes sense to me... it's a Touch device (flat bezel) and it's aimed at professionals

And think the titanium will have the flash, the TV-out or neither?

On or the other, if I had to hedge my bets, i'd say TV out with the 'Pro' moniker, but that is literally a guess.

If they have Multi-Touch and HTC find a way to implement it into WinMo well... I'll want them so much :D

I've not heard anything about multitouch, but never say never.

And i hope the Raphael has a tilting screen...

As I say, I think they probably dropped it for size / weight saving.

but calling it a Touch Pro makes it seem like a successor to the Touch, whereas the actually successor to the Touch is called the Diamond...

Agreed

I've not heard anything about multitouch, but never say never.

Someone linked to an article higher in the thread....

Probably. Shame. i love the tilt... it gets wows, gets the girls interested and is actually useful when typing essays in class (yes I do that on my kaiser... more correction that the whole essay, my teachers are fine with it) (I'm in secondary school)

Well, I won't hold my breath, even though they certainly look and sound very good.
I just feel extra cautious ever since my "dream device" the Kaizer wasn't what I expected it to be.

Then again, I have quite some time left before I get to upgrade, so that's fine by me (am I really saying this..?) as for once, it will give me the time to await what others make of the devices and take users' comments into account when making my choice.

hopefully they'll come with 2 batteries; VGA screen, slightly faster processor and 900 mah battery equals shorter battery life. i sure hope i'm wrong on this!

That depends...the screen backlight and processor may be more energy efficient.

SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET !! :D

So we know T-Mob is coming out with the Diamond quite soon ..... would it be worth waiting for the Raphael ??

I've read that the Diamond will have FM Radio and 4Gb Memory but no MicroSD and Flash ..... and the Raphael will have MicroSD and Flash but no 4Gb and FM Radio ?? :(

The X1 still kicks these two in the nuts though ..... 3" inch WVGA Screen with Slight Tilt + 3.5mm Jack + Radio has RDS + 1500 mAh Battery + A Better Chance Of Decent Drivers !!

By the way what is eGPS and why would anyone want to hook up a phone to a TV ?? :(

Nah, I'd take the Raphael over the X1 any day, for Manilla/TouchFlo, and the fact that HTC are a more experienced WinMo brand. And I'm almost certain they'll have learned their lesson, there'll be drivers here.

Enhanced GPS. from Wikipedia : "eGPS delivers a "universal positioning capability that will not only work reliably indoors and in zero GPS signal conditions, but greatly speed time to fix in poor GPS reception areas where most handsets are used." More specifically, it can "exploit data available from the cellular network to speed GPS fixes and provide complementary, fast, and reliable location sensing when GPS signals are weak or unavailable." "

And seeing as it's winmo, you can get the benifit of doing things like Powerpoint presentations or websurfing on the bigger screen, or work on documents etc, even watch videos or show pictures.

Ummm, remember the X1 is made for SE by HTC, and will share many of the same internals!

Yes, but we don't know if HTC are designing it or if they're just making it. It could be SE designed and HTC built, or it could be SE styled, with HTC designing the innards... I don't know.
