HTC Touch Diamond2 and original Diamond
HTC continues to innovate and push Windows Mobile to the edge with their latest update to the HTC Touch Diamond lineup. The Touch Diamond2 brings a very high resolution 480×800 WVGA 3.2 inch display along with an update to TouchFLO 3D that has you zipping along in style. HTC continues to pack in all the latest wireless technologies in a super sleek form factor.
Back of Diamond2 and Diamond
The Diamond2 uses a standard smooth glossy flat back compared to the edged diamond back shape on the original Diamond device.
New hardware buttons
HTC took the traditional 4 hardware buttons, shrunk them, and placed them in a line along the bottom. The directional pad is also gone with a touch sensitive scroll bar in its place.
Touch Diamond2 in hand
The Diamond2 is a couple millimeters longer and just slightly thicker than the original Diamond.
Volume controls are managed by a single bar on the upper left side.

HTC uses their proprietary USB port for syncing, charging, and wired headsets.

HTC Touch Diamond2 home screen
The display is beautiful and there are some slick wallpaper images included on the device.
Updated Weather tab
The Weather tab has been updated to give you a bit more info on the home screen view.
New Settings tab
The Settings tab lets you access and manage your most common settings.
Managing your tabs
You can select tabs to hide or show and then select and drag to put them in the order you want.
When you press the Windows/Start icon you will see the program launcher. HTC changed this behavior to make sure owners do not see much change when WM 6.5 is released.
One of the great new features is the HTC People application that lets you see all communications with each of your contacts.
The dialer/call screen has been updated on the Touch Diamon2.
