Video of HTC Touch HD appears, good reviews of HTC Touch Pro and Diamond

Summary:At the beginning of this week HTC announced three new Touch Windows Mobile devices. There is now a video of the HTC Touch HD up on YouTube, inserted below, that shows it in action in comparison to the Samsung OMNIA and iPhone 3G. As pointed out by Ryan Block on the latest episode of the GDGT podcast, the dimensions of the HTC Touch HD are EXACTLY the same as the iPhone 3G and this can't just be a coincidence.

At the beginning of this week HTC announced three new Touch Windows Mobile devices.

There are also now several reviews of the updated HTC Touch Diamond and new HTC Touch Pro and here are a couple of my favorite that you may enjoy reading while I work to get my Sprint Touch Diamond review up next week:

I have been saving up my mobile device funds and am seriously thinking about the US 3G version of the Touch Pro as a future device.
