Mobile World Congress: HTC Roundup

HTC released 2 phones at this year's Mobile World Congress: the HTC Touch Diamond 2 on the left, and the HTC Touch Pro on the right.

The Touch Diamond 2 comes with a huge 3.6-inch 480 x 800 LCD up front, and around back there's a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus. The other main addition is a "touch zoom bar" below the screen. There's also the new version of TouchFLO 3D running on Windows Mobile, but under the hood there's the same old 528MHz processor, and the whole kit is actually a tad thicker a 0.54-inches. Still, memory is up to 512MB ROM and 288MB RAM. This phone should hit major markets in Europe and Asia in "early Q2 2009," with more spots to follow later in the year.

Meanwhile, the Touch Pro 2 now has a 3.6-inch 800 x 400 screen, with 512MB of ROM, 288MB of RAM, microSD expansion, and a 3.2 megapixel cam. The phone still has a QWERTY keyboad, just like the old one. It'll launch early in the second quarter in parts of Asia and Europe with other "major global markets" following in early Summer.
