iPhone vs HTC Touch Diamond



network
features present in both of the devices. The user, if he goes for the Apple iPhone, will have the benefits of improved worldwide usage given by the frequencies of the 2G network and there is a total of 4 frequencies being used by this mobile phone, namely - GSM 1900, GSM 900, GSM 850 and GSM 1800. If the user chooses the HTC Touch Diamond then he is also bound to have fantastic roaming facets due to the presence of the network frequencies of the 2G network (GSM 900, GSM 1800 and GSM 1800) and those of the 3G network (HSDPA 2100 and HSDPA 900).

Multimedia is perhaps the next chapter in this analysis known as the Apple iPhone vs HTC Touch Diamond. The primary feature is of course the camera and hence, the HTC Touch Diamond has a camera of about 3.2 MP while the Apple iPhone is vested with a 2 MP camera. Resolution of the picture taken is another notable feature in both of the handsets with the Apple iPhone being capable of taking pictures with an image resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. The HTC Touch Diamond is a widget which is able to provide pictures which are quite good in terms of clarity due to an image resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels.

While the HTC Diamond is overall smaller than the iPhone the screen is significantly smaller resulting in all of the content being harder to read than on the iPhone. Looks wise the Diamond is up there with the iPhone. It is black slick and fits in the palm of one hand.

Another big difference is that the menu access and the turning on of the device is via one button on the bottom of the iPhone Vs a power on button on the top of the Diamond iPhone and then one has to scroll through to a menu item.
In the first big acid test we tested the ease with which one could access a Wifi network other than Telstra. On the iPhone the independent Wi Fi network was easily accessed in seconds by going to settings, Wi Fi and then accessing the network.
With the HTC Diamond we had to turn on LAN WiFi access and the interface for inserting the security code was not clear. Furthermore the keyboard was not as easy to use as the iPhone and on two occasions the keyboard froze as we tried to enter data via a QWERTY keyboard vs. a normal keypad on the iPhone.

Music is an asset present in both of the handsets with features capable of entertaining the user in the best way possible. Hence, the user can listen to some of the latest hits being played on the iPod of the Apple iPhone or he can take the feature of listening to songs in a random manner with the help of the FM radio with RDS in the HTC Touch Diamond. This radio is quite a wonderful device with the ability to give stereo quality sound and also has the feature of RDS. There is another option present in the HTC Touch Diamond in the form of an MP3 player.

The next wonderful feature is the touchscreen which is incorporated quite efficiently in both of the handsets. The touchscreen present in the HTC Touch Diamond uses the technology of TouchFLO 3D finger swipe navigation which enables the user to swipe (with a little finger) the icons representing the different features on the display screen of this mobile phone. The Apple iPhone uses the technology known as the Multi-touch input method and hence, is also quite a user amiable and a finger-friendly mobile device. Both of the mobile devices are therefore, prodigies full of brilliance and fabulous features and hence, being complete facility packages.



The operating systems of both the handsets are quite easy to use and therefore, assist the user to access the features present in both of the handsets in a hassle free manner. Therefore, the MAC OS X v10.4.8 does the above quoted service in the Apple iPhone while the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional does the same in the HTC Touch Diamond.

Re: iPhone vs. who ?

Apple iPhone vs LG Prada KE850

Like the Sony Ericsson P990, the LG Prada is Tri-band GSM, but it doesn't support 3G data networks; like the iPhone, it supports EDGE for data.

That means the Prada phone will have reduced coverage in the US (there are no announced plans to sell it in the US), and limited data coverage in Europe, where 3G apparently is more common than EDGE.

If the iPhone's support for EDGE but not 3G is a fatal flaw in the US market, how will Europeans find the LG Prada attractive? The Prada phone also lacks support for WiFi, giving it no fast networking ability at all.

The LG Prada also lacks much onboard memory, relying on an SD card slot for any storage. Adding a 4 GB SD card to match the iPhone's base memory adds another $80. Finding an 8 GB SD card is still a bit difficult, although iSuppli seems to think these parts are commonly available for $70.

If that’s the case, why didn't LG throw in 8 GB of Magic iSuppli RAM, and provide a phone with enough memory to do something? Apparently, before the iPhone nobody realized that adding RAM to a phone might be useful.

Other hardware details appear similar: both have a 2 MP camera, although the Prada phone has an LED flash for taking nicer camera phone pics; both are almost identically ultra thin; and the LG Prada phone almost delivers the same touch screen resolution: 200x400 vs 320x480 on the iPhone.

On the hardware side, the iPhone consistently beats the Prada in important areas that will make a big difference to users, despite both being the same price. Still, the hardware differences on the two devices are trivial compared to the software that powers each.

Prada Software Details
The real difference: the LG Prada phone's interface is based on Adobe Flash Lite, while Apple's is driven by OS X Quartz and Core Animation, and its applications are built upon the Cocoa frameworks.

If LG's Flash based website for the Prada phone is any indication, this will make the phone suck. Flash is great for quickly making animations for kiosks and demos, but it certainly can't deliver the apps Apple demonstrated.

That's why the Prada phone’s only touted features are watching movies, listening to music, and viewing common file documents. No mention of any web browser at all, no sophisticated email or messaging apps, and only basic support for other common phone features.

LG hasn’t officially announced what operating system powers the Prada, but it uses Symbian in its other phones, and Adobe built Flash Lite as a user interface layer on top of Symbian.

Other Symbian phone makers, including NTT DoCoMo and Sony Ericsson, have also joined in Adobe’s Flash Lite initiative. Adobe has also ported Flash Lite to run on Windows Mobile.

Flash Lite is a minimal subset version of Adobe's Flash Player, designed specifically for mobiles. It offers scripted commands to play media clips and songs and access phone features such as messaging, dialing, checking network status, and showing the battery level.

It’s a very simple user interface shim, designed to make it easy to build simple interfaces. It is not a real development platform comparable to something like J2ME or the iPhone’s OS X.

Imagine a web browser built on top of a minimal subset of Flash, and its suddenly obvious why the iPhone is further ahead than industry pundits seem to understand.

If major players like NTT, Sony Ericsson, and LG have lined up to base their most luxurious vision of the mobile phone's future upon interpreted Flash ActionScript, well, it's no stretch to say Apple is five years ahead.

Any company with manufacturing capacity and experience can work with world-renowned designers to create a sharp looking box to sell. What they can't easily deliver is sophisticated software technology.

That's why nobody can beat the iPod. Apple's advantage isn't its ads, it hasn't primarily been hardware, it's all about the software. So far, the iPods’s internal software has been simple, relying on iTunes to handle all its heavy lifting on a synced PC.

Software
Apple’s iPhone builds upon that iPod strategy of keeping most of the complication in iTunes, while moving a lot of the already proven OS X code into the phone itself. That enables far more functional capacity than anyone else had planned to tackle for some time. It will also make it very hard for rivals to catch up.



Software is far harder to do than hardware. If it weren't, we wouldn't have the Device Problems In Search of a Solution plaguing the mobile industry: user interface, stability, sync, and DRM issues nobody seems to get right.

It's 1984 again, except instead of a bunch of incompatible computer systems each running arcane and buggy software that does very little, we have a variety of different mobile devices that all struggle to make any practical application of their underlying hardware.
