Yeah - I have to say that I would LOVE to replace my TytnII with one of these.
My problem is that I have to wat to see if the rumours that Orange are going to take this are true!
We can only wait and hope I guess.
(Unless anyone knows otherwise............)
I've been speaking to different people at Orange and it's gone from 'within 2 weeks' (this was mid may I was told this) to the phone not being listed on the system, to the Diamond2 being released?
It seems the HD is out of stock and I had been told that it was being discontinued and replaced by another handset. Some reps have told me that it was Touch Pro2 and some have told me they do not know.
I've just been emailing Orange (they have this irritating habit where you hit the reply button and a different person replies) all of them told me it was only going to be released on Business, but then the TyTn II was also a similar circumstance and I'm currently a proud
owner of one of those.
Yesterday morning the Touch HD was taken off the website! So I'm going to keep playing it from the angle of 'What phone is going to replace the HD on the personal account' and 'I want a Windows Mobile phone with a keyboard because I can't stand
purely touch screen phones!'
One person I spoke to said they're looking at replacing it with the Touch Diamond2 and when I said 'does that have a keyboard?' He said no it doesn't but the Touch Pro2 does (in a hesistant voice).
I went on to ask whether that would be available for me to upgrade to as a personal user and he said yes it should be, but there is no indication of price yet as it's too early on.
I'm sure the next person I speak too, will tell me otherwise...
