The phone wars have been heating up for a while, resulting in a bumper crop of cool gadgets and racking up a few casualties along the way. First the RAZR, then the iPhone…then the Diamond?

With Motorola’s phone division a distant memory and Apple looking surprisingly shaky, Microsoft is aiming to clean up with its Diamond, a new handheld that handles all the usual webbery but possibly with slightly more panache. And a full ounce lighter, which is what has the gadget-heads excited.

It may not move quite as smoothly as your iPhone, but you’ll have to pick one up to find out. Otherwise, get ready for a new world-changing palm-sized block.

…or bide your time and wait for the next round of gadgetry.
