We’ve seen blurry pictures of all three handsets. We’ve seen reasonably clear photos of all three devices. Never before have we been able to gather all three smartphones into one convenient location. That is, until now.
CNET Asia has snapped a series of photographs that directly compare the HTC Touch Diamond, the (non-3G) Apple iPhone, and the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1. The photo shoot gives you a good indication as to the relative proportions of the three devices as well as the distinct differences in their user interfaces. Interestingly, two of the three devices depicted are made by HTC.
The three most talked about touchscreen phones share a lot of elements, like having a large touchscreen, but they’ve got plenty of differences too. The XPERIA X1 is the only one with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, but it is also the bulkiest as a result. The smallest and thinnest of the trio is the Touch Diamond.
