To the lucky Singapore and Southeast Asia markets, HTC has released the Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2 smartphones.
The phones are said to be improvements on the HTC Touch Diamond smartphone released in the United States on April 10 and the HTC Touch Pro, released in October 2008.
Both the Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2 feature HTC's TouchFLO 3D interface, which has been more deeply integrated into Windows Mobile 6.1 for greater consistency throughout Windows Mobile applications and menus, HTC states.
TouchFLO 3D brings information important to the user-such as quick access to contacts, messaging, e-mail and weather-to the top level of the user interface.
Both phones also provide a new people-centric approach to communication: From the contact card or the on-screen call during a phone conversation, all the correspondence with an individual-voicemails, texts, etc.-can be viewed all together, enabling business users, in particular, to engage most effectively.
HTC's Push Internet technology is also included on both smartphones. Users can preselect their favorite Websites and, because they're preloaded, they'll render more quickly. Opera Mobile is being reported as the default browser.
"The HTC Touch Pro2 and HTC Touch Diamond2 introduce a mobile communication experience that simplifies how we communicate with people in our lives, whether through voice, text or e-mail," said HTC CEO Peter Chou in the company announcement.
