As the HTC Touch Diamond gets ready to start shipping, the manufacturer has issued a warning that any bought through online grey trader distributors will not be covered by HTC's warranty. Some online retailers are currently selling the HTC Touch Diamond on its website for £494.95. Customers are instead being encouraged to buy the device through HTC's official distributor Brightpoint where the handsets will be covered by full warranty should anything go wrong with the device.
HTC believes some grey traders are getting their Touch Diamond devices direct from Hong Kong, and are keen to distance themselves in case of any problems with the handsets. Brightpoint will begin shipping the device at the end of June.
