The Apple iPhone 3G has been out for a while now, and has therefore been able to dominate the market of “smart phones. " Now, however, Microsoft has come out with the HTC Touch Diamond, a competitive product that boasts similar features and pricing. So which one is better? Or are they the same? This article will help you decide which phone is for you, or if either of them are worth the price at all.
The HTC Touch Diamond is, like its name implies, completely touch screen based. It runs off of the system Windows Mobile 6.1, and some have noted that that is actually not a very good operating system to use with a touch screen. The appearance of the phone is sleek and stylish, and about the same size as a person's palm. Right now the phone comes in black, but, if it is successful, it might come in more colors later on. The processor speed is slower than some users might be wanting in their phone, so if you are looking for a fast processing phone then another phone would be a better option. The HTC Touch Diamond does not use multi-touch technology, so that means as far as touch technology goes, that it is not even close to the Apple iPhone 3G. Standard features include a 2.8 inch VGA screen with built in auto rotation. It has a 3.2 mega pixel camera, and wi-fi. It comes with a GPS system and also comes with 4GB memory, Bluetooth capabilities, FM radio, 192 MB DDR Ram, and a 528 MHz Processor.
The Apple iPhone 3G is a better version of the original iPhone. It still uses the same idea of combining phone, internet, and Ipod. The main difference between the iPhone 3G and the original iPhone is the fact that the Internet speed is faster. The Apple iPhone 3G adds the additional feature of an app store right on the phone. The e-mail service is better as well. However, there are some drawbacks to this phone also. Some common features that most phones have are not existent on this iPhone. This phone is Bluetooth capable, comes with many different operating systems, iTunes, a 16GB memory, e-mail, radio, and GPS system. It also uses the multi-touch technology and has a built in automatic rotating screen. Currently the only color offered for this phone is black. The iPhone is a great phone to get if interesting in Internet browsing and music downloading. If you are not interested in these features then you should probably go with a cheaper phone.
Overall, the HTC Touch Diamond and Apple iPhone 3G cannot really be compared to each other. The iPhone offers many different features and technologies than the Touch Diamond. The HTC Touch Diamond is more like other touch phones that are out there, and the iPhone still stands alone. Still, unless Internet speed and music features are important for you to have on your phone, then you are better off getting a cheaper phone. The iPhone and Diamond are also similarly priced, so if one is too expensive for you, then the other one will be as well.
