...that's what HTC head Peter Chou said this morning after introducing the Diamond Touch, a slick piece of smartphone that exudes all the right iPhone notes. The one-touch phone, of course, is worth talking about:
Windows Mobile® 6.1 Professional with Qualcomm MSM 7201A 528MHz processor
WCDMA / HSPA: 900/2100MHz. HSDPA 7.2 Mbps and HSUPA
802.11 b/g WiFi
Integrated GPS receiver
Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR
2.8-inch VGA touch screen
4 GB Internal Storage, 256 MB flash, 192 MB RAM
3.2 megapixel camera
900 mAh battery
Size: 102 x 51 x 11.33mm
Weight: 110 g
...according to my esteemed blogging colleague the Mobile Gadgeteer. And naturally, if I didn't want an iPhone but wanted the next-gen abilities of the device, I'd certainly consider this one.
But what I really want to know is: does Vista really have a strong future in mobile? Chou's quote, above, struck me as odd. Tell us, of course, in TalkBack.
UPDATE, May 7, 2008, 1:19PM: A spokesperson for HTC e-mailed me and said her script from the event does not correspond with Chou's quote above, which was originally reported by Addy Dugdale at Gizmodo and reprinted here. She says Chou said: “I see 2008 as a year that we take a big step forward in making the mobile Internet actually useable and fun.”
