The HTC Touch Diamond is a pretty awesome phone but I’m sure some of you out there were a little upset over the lack of color options. Well, HTC just released an “ice white” version of the device. It’s absolutely gorgeous and happens to have the same set of impressive specs as the black version did.

The HTC Touch Diamond is a really impressive phone but the one thing that keeps me from wanting it is the fact that it runs Windows Mobile, and although HTC has done everything they could to make Windows Mobile a little bit more usable, it is still Windows Mobile. I really hope that Android lives up to the hype because we need some mobile operating systems that will force Microsoft to improve Windows Mobile.
