If it ends up also having GPS, then my Diamond will be getting the "hand-down" treatment!!!

The proportions feel a bit wrong to me. It's definitely fat compared to the omnia / diamond, but because it's thin and short, the fatness makes it feel fatter than the Kaiser, even if it isn't. If that makes any sense ;)

In reality, I never really use the dpad on my Omnia, i've kinda trained myself not to though because I don't like the optical joystick very much ;) On that basis, I can live with it.

SF, how are you finding the TP? I have mine now, and simply don't like the form factor. Device is fast etc. etc., but it IS - as I feared - just too 'chunky'...

P


I like the Touch Pro a lot, but the screen resolution of this would be a draw. I hardly use the hardware qwerty of the TP, the new on screen keyboards are so good there's just no need. I dont find it chunky but then coming from a Kaiser/Hermes/Wizard in the past I guess you just dont notice.

This is looking like a serious winner. Higher screen res (to compete with X1 I bet), still looks just as thin as a Diamond. I could be tempted, flog the TP and get one of these instead? Missus wanted a TP so I could give her mine, get a new Compact or Vario IV on her upgrade to flog on ebay and get one of these for myself...

Also, how do Diamond users feel about this? Two flagship devices just came out and now they bring out one (literally within a month of the TP) that is in some ways better...

EDIT:

We need more info too:

1. Internal storage?
2. SD slot?
3. GPS?
4. TV out?
5. Dimensions?

There has to be some 'catch' with the HD to stop it stomping all over the Diamond, surely?

That is an AMAZING looking screen.

Would love to know it's physical size...


Device specs: 115mm x 62.8mm x 12mm


Looks pretty ready to go to me :wacko:

If I HAD to guess, i'd guess late 2008!

P


I would be sure this would be in stores ready for santa :D


Nice!

If it is a mid level device with HSDPA and no GPS it's mine.

GPS just seems to make devices really really expensive (Diamond)

Rory


It does have GPS, HSDPA and all the other bells and whistles. :(

I'm confused by the 312MB storage size in the screenshot... is that internal storage? SD? Something else?

P


I also cried out why only 328MB onboard storage, well I guess we cant have it all.. ;)

Thanks for the deets!

A few more Q's if that's OK...

- No DPAD at all? Scroll wheel?
- microSD slot?
- How big is the battery (mAh)?
- Other hardware buttons on the side?
- You like? ;)

Added sizeasy comparison to first post.

I would guess 3.2"?

P




I think that if the device specs are same as the Iphone 3G's, then if you compare the two devices, the HTC Touch HD might have a 3,5" display  ;)

If mobiman2008 is right, then the Diamond is already outdated!!

I feel sad...my TP is looking a bit "meh" too.

- No DPAD at all? Scroll wheel? Well the screen is so smooth to scroll on, I don't think there's a need for DPAD. or scroll wheels
It does come with a stylus
;)
- MicroSD slot? Yes it does come with MicroSD slot.
- How big is the battery (mAh)? 1350mAH battery. I think they could have done a little better with the battery though.
- Other hardware buttons on the side? Only volume button on the left side and 3.5mm headset jack on the top.
- You like? Damn! I'm loving this baby. Will post more pics later on :(

Orange regrets to inform you that their network will be going down in 1 hours time for all users apart from yourself. This is because nothing would go down on you, not even a network!
