HTC Pure full review

Pocketnow have published their full review of the HTC Pure, AT&T’s HTC Touch Diamond 2. Like the review we posted earlier, they were not overly impressed, but still feel the device is a solid performer.

Below is their conclusion:

OVERALL IMPRESSION 
The Pure is a great device for a number of reasons, but doesn’t really offer anything outstandingly new… other than Windows Mobile 6.5.  It’s not smaller or thinner than the original Touch Diamond. It doesn’t bring anything innovative like the Verizon Imagio’s FLO TV network. It doesn’t have a fantastic keyboard or cool speakerphone/conference calling features like the Touch Pro2.  The camera is a higher resolution 5MP, but the sensor is small and grainy with low image quality just like on all other cell phone cameras.

Overall, I’m not terribly impressed with the Pure.  However, for $150, it is a pretty good price for a solid Windows Phone on AT&T.
