HTC starts shipping the Touch Diamond

The tease is over. The HTC Touch Diamond, worthy of the moniker “iPhone killer,” has started shipping, contrary to the rumor mill’s June shipping dates. 10,000 of these awesome devices are now en route to Hong Kong’s CSL carrier network with the Asia Pacific and Europe to follow soon.

T-Mobile will be the lucky one in Germany, who will sell both the Touch Diamond and the MDA Compact IV (Raphael) from HTC. So start saving up and get that couch change together, cos if you want one of these, it ain’t gonna come cheap!

For those emerging from under a rock, the Touch Diamond is the newest touchscreen cell phone from HTC that has been raking up quite a storm for the past few weeks. With a crystal clear 2.8-inch VGA touch screen and some fancy wizardry called TouchFLO, the device has every reason to do so. The master of all trades boasts of 3.5G connectivity, aGPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, and 4 gigs of internal storage all mixed to perfection on Windows Mobile 6.1. Take that iPhone!

    Tmobile is actually getting the Tmobile MDA compact IV which is based off of the touch diamond, not the touch diamond itself. They are also getting the Tmobile MDA Vario IV which is based of the touch diamond Raphael, with a sliding out keyboard.
