HTC reveals successors to the Diamond and Pro!

Woot! HTC has unveiled the successors to the Touch Diamond and Touch Pro! Despite the crappy names (they are simply called Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2), the devices themselves do pack some worthy upgrades and they look gorgeous to boot! The screenshot on top is the Touch Pro2 while that on the bottom is the Touch Diamond2.

For one, both get larger screens and slimmer dimensions. Battery life is also supposedly improved; up to 50% more juice for the Diamond which will be a much welcomed relieve! Other upgrades for the Diamond include double the RAM and ROM, expandable memory instead of a fixed internal storage and a 5 megapixel camera!

In terms of availability, both models are expected to hit our shores in Q2 2009 which is really soon! Time to start looking for a new owner for my Touch Diamond!

Oh, and it will run on the Windows Mobile 6.1 instead of the recently announced Windows Mobile 6.5 as Microsoft has put its (version 6.5) GA date to be in the second half of 2009. Darn!
