Yes, the news from the MWC is coming in fast, with the big name players in the mobile market all trying to capture the limelight. HTC was no different, introducing 2 new phones to their collection, the Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2.

HTC Touch Diamond2
The successor to HTC's ultra-sexy touchphone Touch Diamond, the Touch Diamond2 incorporates a larger 3.2-inch wide-screen VGA touch display and 5 megapixel camera with autofocus. It also sports a new "touch zoom bar" at the bottom of the screen which lets you precisely zoom in and out whenever you please just by swiping your finger from left to right.

This phone also features an enhanced TouchFLO 3D interface integrated with Windows Mobile 6.1 which makes a user's "phone-using experience more instinctive". As part of this improved integration, the touch focus areas have also been enlarged to be more finger-friendly.

To make mobile Internet much more easier and enjoyable, HTC also introduced its Push Internet technology (to both Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2), which alleviates slow downloading and rendering of web pages on a mobile phone. Users can preselect their favorite Websites to get immediate access to them when needed.

The HTC Touch Diamond will be available in the second quarter of this year, but there's no word on how much it will be priced yet.

Designed for business professionals to deliver the most powerful productivity experience, the HTC Touch Pro2 succeeds the bigger, less curvy Touch Pro.

The Touch Pro2 runs on TouchFLO 3D and features a high resolution 3.6-inch widescreen VGA display. It boasts an improved battery life from its predecessor, and now incorporates a touch sensitive zoom bar similar to that of the Touch Diamond2.

This cool phone is also packed with gravity, proximity and ambient light sensors, just like that on an iPhone.

Perhaps the most appealing feature of the Touch Pro2 is the large QWERTY keyboard that slides out of its side. Once out, the display can be tilted closer to you for better viewing.

With the Touch Pro2, HTC introduced Straight Talk, which lets users seamlessly transition from emails to single or multi-party conference calls. Simply flip the phone over and it automatically turns into a conference room speakerphone.

Touch Pro2

Bigger, badder and even better than its predecessor. HTC actually listened to the complaints ppl made about Touch Pro and decided to release a new and improvised version of it.

QWERTY keypad is now larger and the touch screen more responsive.

TouchFlo technology is so attractive it makes browsing easy.

Tiltable screen? Oh dear, this is a phone to die for.

More tasks can be fit into the display screen and several new features are implemented, such as the noise cancelling speaker, straight talk technology and the conference call.

HTC is so good.

I might lay my hands down on this instead of Touch Pro. Might be worth the money but the price won't be easy on our tight pockets~
