Mobile phones are the dearest gadgets of modern men. They are equipments of vanity as well as usefulness. To add to the list of world class mobile phones, HTC, the leading brand name among mobile phone manufacturers, has launched its feature-some phone 'HTC Touch. This is a new slimline WM6 phone sporting 'TouchFLO' touch-screen technology. The Touch is a delight to hold, with its slim profile and small dimensions lending the phone a pebble-like form factor, and the rubberized soft-touch grip hopefully stopping you from accidentally skimming it down.
The device measures up at just 99.9mm (L) x 58mm (W) x 13.9mm (T), and weighs just 112g with battery, so it's a phone you can slip in your jacket phone and carry about all day with ease. No buttons could be found on the front of the device which is dominated by a 2.8? LCD touch screen with back light, supporting a 240 x 320 pixel resolution with a D Pad and two Talk/End buttons.
The Touch includes a 2 MP camera with a self portrait mirror, but the lack of fl ash makes night time photography almost impossible. It includes a two or 10 second self-timer, white balance adjustment and several effects. The most attractive specification is that Touch runs Windows Mobile 6 Professional on a 201MHz processor with the standard 64 megs of RAM and 128 megs of flash ROM. Although the Touch isn't 3G or HSDPA capable, it's fairly well equipped in the connectivity department with Wi-Fi 802.11b/g, Blue tooth 2.0 and USB.
The HTC Touch is a compact and stylish smart phone that uses touch-screen navigation to provide quick access to key features. Running the new Windows Mobile 6 OS, the Touch responds to movement, and recognizes the sweep of your finger to launch a unique 3D interface. Unfortunately, the lack of 3G or HSDPA connectivity and a slow processor hinder what is a glance into the future of mobile phone interfaces.
As a multimedia device, the Touch is a solid unit. The multimedia menu has been modified specifically for this unit and features large, easy to tap buttons, while the library is easy to scroll through. With no keyboard, the Touch has just a few controls; a comfortable five-way navigational pad, answer and end call keys, a power button, dedicated camera button and a volume slider. The phone is rated at up to five hours talk time and 200 hours standby time.
With the stylish looks and elegant features HTC Touch is a dominating phone in the cellular market. With number of futuristic specifications, undoubtedly Touch deserves to be called the most popular phone today.
