[singlepic=321,460,380,,]HTC announced their newest phone today, the Touch Diamond. It of course has some iPhone similarities, such as the coverflow option and an integrated YouTube function. The weather widget (if you wanna to call it that) looks pretty neat, and features a wind shield wiper across the screen to indicate rain. Also included is GPS, HSDPA and WiFi – the first time they’ve all been included in a mobile handset!

The HTC Touch Diamond will be available in Europe (on Orange) starting June 2008, and will hit Asia and the Middle East later this quarter. US shores should expect the phone the second half of 2008, with no official date announced. No word on pricing.
