Since we often hear about our U.S. focus, here’s one for the international crowd — HTC just outed a Windows Mobile 6.5 update for the Touch Diamond 2. The update is good in Germany, Denmark, UK, Sweden, Norway and Portugal. And it’s not just a simple upgrade of the 6.5 bits over 6.1, says the::unwired: it’s a full ROM wipe and flash deal. That means you’ll need to backup and restore your personal data, not to mention re-install any apps on your reborn Touch Diamond 2. Of course, you gain the Windows Mobile Market, support for My Phone and get to call your device a Windows Phone, not a Windows Mobile handset. Surely that’s worth the backup and restore effort, no?
You’ll need your phone’s IMEI number for the update and you can find the download on the HTC Europe support site. I see that HTC also has Windows Mobile 6.5 there for the Snap and Touch Pro 2 ready and waiting. See Europe? We haven’t forgotten about you! :)
