I have used the HTC Touch Diamond for several months and the display is absolutely fantastic. Today, the HTC Fuze from AT&T is available today for US$299.99 after US$50 mail-in rebate and 2-year contract. The no commitment price is US$499.99, which actually is a very reasonable for a device with all of these high end features and much cheaper than the US$700+ I have paid in the past for unlocked devices with these types of features.
The AT&T Fuze is the US version of the HTC Touch Pro that has been available for quite a while in other countries. Specifications of the AT&T Fuze include:
- Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
- 528MHz Qualcomm 7210 processor
- Quad-band GSM (850/1800/1900 MHz)
- Quad-band UMTS/HSDPA (850/1800/1900 MHz)
- 512MB ROM and 288MB RAM
- 2.8 inch 480x640 high resolution touch screen display
- 1340 mAh battery
- 3.2 megapixel camera with flash light
- Integrated GPS receiver
- Integrated 802.11 b/g WiFi radio
- Integrated Bluetooth 2.0 radio with EDR
- microSD card slot with support for SDHC cards
- Dedicated 5-row QWERTY keyboard
WMExperts already has a full review of the device and is quite impressed with it. Mobility Site also posted their extensive review this morning. I just received the Sprint version of the device and am working on my first impressions article to go live tomorrow or Thursday. One major difference that I can see in the two versions is the keyboard layout. They both have 5 rows of keys, but the Sprint model has numbers along the top row while the AT&T one has them as alternate characters over on the right side in a phone keypad arrangement. Also, the Sprint model has a different camera arrangement on the back and has a flush soft-touch back while the AT&T model has the diamond design with shiny back cover.
