I have a HTC TnTn II and love it. I dislike the weight and size as i have has this since the launch last september but really like the look of the Diamond. Has anyone made the swap and if so are you happy? i am not sure if i should wait for the newer version of the TyTn II due later in the year.

any comments are greatly received.

thanks again

I have, and am broadly happy. I miss the keyboard a bit, but love the size and VGA!

There's some good observations in this thread, although it was before anyone had one.
I think I'll be like Paul for a bit, but will appreciate the built in GPS and the fact it can go in a trouser pocket enough to soon cancel out the lack of the keyboard.

I too have swapped up from a TyTN II to a Diamond. I also miss the keyboard a little, but frankly the size of the diamond far out-weighs this for me. The screen is fantastic too! I hope that there will be many more applications for this out soon that take advantage of the accelerometer and all the other great things the diamon poseses.

:( Another convert from an MDA Vario III (as its called here in the UK) to a Diamond. The Vario III was a functional joy but such a brick at the same time.

The question is whether to wait for a "Vario IV" or get a Diamond now. Well it all depends whether size is important to you (it actually feels like I have a phone again rather than a 'pocket' (??) pc. Diamond has a radio but only 4GB storage, whereas the Vario IV has a keyboard, card expansion slot, TV out but no radio.

Features-wise the Vario IV wins hands down ...... but it is still a brick compared to the sleek Diamond! :D

I will see if i can find the site where it had the specs for the Vario IV ... i can wait,but i think i might have to change... if i do i might put my HTC on here for sale first as i have lots of extra's including a broadit car mount :(

As you can see here, the HTC Touch Pro also has a FM Radio with RDS.
