HTC Touch Diamond...the next iPhone??

Up until recently with the Cingular 8125, HTC was the name of a phone maker that was not in my vocabulary. They have been leading the pack lately, however, in touch screen smart phones.

Now HTC is coming out with a family of beautiful touch screen phones, with the much anticipated Touch Diamond as the most talked about cell phone next to the iPhone.

Does this phone look like a super phone? Absolutely. Is it a superphone? You bet your next week's paycheck it is.

The Touch Diamond features a 2.8 inch touch screen, with four times the megapixels as regular phone screens. For those of you Internet buffs who can't imagine a phone without Internet connectivity, the TD allows for a broadband-like Internet connection allowing you to watch streaming Youtube videos, Google, and Wikipedia just like you would if you were on an actual computer. All about the pictures? The camera offers a whopping 3.2 megapixel rate, allowing for gorgeous pictures and video. And for those like me who like to carry their life around in pictures and music, the phone allows for 4GB of hard drive space!! WOW!!

The Touch Diamond is set to release in September, tentatively the 2nd, according to The Boy Genius Report.

Unfortunately, it's being released by Sprint, leaving those of us who prefer good service and sim cards out of the loop.

But you may be able to order your very own version of the phone online directly from the HTC website when the phone is finally released.

As always, I'll post as events develop.
