Hi,

I am hoping to get some good opinion on buying a SmartPhone / PDA / TouchPhone. You may have guessed that by saying so, I have diffused the definitions of each of thes categories, but much of the new launches today are a combination of touch + something.

I have been trying to zero down on one of the following:

HTC Touch Cruise, HTC Touch Diamond, Apple iPhone 3G. Have been reading reviews, but with Apple's carrier lock, I am not really keen on the same. I bought one of the very 1st generation iPhones jailbroke and so on, but the battery seems to be dying out since quite some time, and thus I am keeping off the iPhone. HTC has its own problems of 1-2 seconds delay when switching/closing apps.

What I am looking for is a touch screen interface with good battery to use primarily for office (push emails and so on). I am buying this phone in India, where much of the phones other than Apple 3G come without a carrier lock.

Any suggestions/reviews are welcome. Any other model suggestions are also welcome.

I would recommend the iPhone 3G, purely for it's simplicity and it's great touch screen.

the diamond is what i am getting when it's avaliable in the us. 5 mp cam, video web chat and windows mobile 6.5, what more could you ask for.

apples are verry cool and sleek, the battery issue alone would keep me away. check out some of the videos on youtube it is very nice.

I currently have an HTC TyTn II (AT&T Tilt) with Windows Mobile 6.1, before that I had a HTC Wizard (T-Mobile MDA) with WM 5. I have never regretted it and tried the IPhone and personally i think it is annoying. I like being able to do pretty much everything I can on my PocketPC that I can on my comp, with the exception of play shooters.

this totally depends on what you find important. You want an good camera? Or do you find that less important, do you want the ability to download apps, choose the Iphone (it really is and option you should consider)? . We cannot give you an funded recommendation if you're not clearer in what you prefer.

You should have the battery in your 1st generation iPhone replaced. It is a lot cheaper than getting another phone and this way you also know that you can remain unlocked. Getting a 3G from a store today virtually guarantees you not to be able to do so. I have kept my 3G baseband at 2.28.00 specifically so that I can sell it unlocked whenever they release a new iPhone.

? 3g has already been jailbroken and unlocked, was jailbroken by the team up at UCSB 2 months ago, unlocking came out 1.5 months ago.

You cannot unlock all 3Gs. ;) It all depends on bootloaders.
