Sprint HTC Touch Diamond deboxed and hands-on'd

We just put our hands all over Sprint’s recently announced version of the HTC Touch Diamond, and documented the process for all to see.

As is becoming common for HTC lately, the Sprint version of the Touch Diamond is quite a stunner. Oddly, they’ve dropped the jagged design on the rear of the phone, something the standard Touch Diamond is known for. In its place is a slab of soft touch hued somewhere between plum and maroon. While it’s surprising, the change is definitely not off-putting; in fact, I like the new back panel quite a bit more. The 3.2 megapixel camera is well placed, high enough up that it won’t catch your fingers at the edge of the frame.

We’ll have a full review up in just a few days. Check out the full gallery of shots after the jump.
