HTC Touch Diamond is out

Looks as though things are pretty grim right now seeing as how the new HTC touch just came out. But hopefully the one thing that will save us is that it costs $250 after the rebate and savings. Hopefully the touch wont be put in the same catagory as the Instinct because of 1. the high price, and 2. because the Instinct is a high end multimedia phone and the touch is a PDA/Phone. All we can do is cross our fingers and hope there is still some people looking out for us instinct users.

I'm assuming your talking about the Diamond, the Touch has been out for quite a while. But I do agree to both your point, it's the only saving grace for the Instinct.</p>

Re: HTC Touch Diamond is out

I was offered an even swap for the Diamond, but it being a Sprint device I am terrified of what all could be wrong with the Diamond as well. I know I will play with a few times at the Sprint store and read up on user complaints and so on before I decide to switch.

If you want the flash, wait for the PRO, it also has a pull out QWERTY keyboard and even more features. Same thing as the Diamond, but souped(sp) up even more.

Re: HTC Touch Diamond is out

So i went to the HTC webpage just to compare the Touch Diamond to the Instinct. It seems almost superior to our device anyone else agree?

They offered me a deal on my Instinct - just to pay difference between a new phone. I chose to stay with the Instinct for now. I am a business owner with several lines for several years maybe that is why. AND... the Instinct is not what they said it would be. It is no iPhone killer - leading me to believe it would do all the iPhone would do and more. I need the BUSINESS functionality of a smart-phone, I messed up. I am hoping for some improvement so developers will get apps rolling out that will help. I acquired my Instinct on day one and will probably keep it - I have also stuck with SPRINT through a faulty MotoQ, 2 faulty Moguls and another Mogul that worked great sans the terrible battery life. Give the Instinct a chance to be fixed (as awful as thay sounds) before jumping away. It is well worth another 30 day wait. It will be like a Christmas present when all bugs are worked out for us. SPRINT has the best customer service in the business of mobile phones, hands down. The Diamond just means starting the process over because HTC has its own problems - - - MOGUL, TOUCH...remember.

Re: HTC Touch Diamond is out

i remember seeing the UK review on Cnet for that thing. They said it was so sluggish, it wasn't even worth it. I don't know if they've fixed that for the US release.
