The CDMA version of the Touch has a number of software improvements over its GSM predecessor. Are they enough to win your heart?
We first showed you the Touch when HTC launched the GSM earlier this year. The CDMA version for Sprint looks the same, but it has a number of software upgrades (and it's faster, too). This video tour shows off most the improvements to the TouchFlo interface. About the only thing we missed was that the Touch for Sprint also has a Rolodex-like alphabet down the side of the contact list - very much like on the iPhone and it works very well - better, perhaps, than on the iPhone.

Having said that, the Touch is a move in the right direction, even if it isn't as perfect an iteration as Apple's first venture. It does retain some functionality and capability that the iPhone lacks, namely MS Exchange Syncing, Live TV viewing (via Sprint TV), WINMO applications (PPT, Word, Excel), removable memory... Not to mention the fact that it is almost exactly the same size as a RAZR2. Do I need to go on? No this is not an iPhone killer like the Fanboys will claim. It wasn't meant to be. It is meant to market windows mobile to a broader audience, an... (continues)
Finally, someone who gets it! People come into my store day after day and ask "Is this better than the iPhone?" and I have to keep telling them that this is on a whole DIFFERENT level. For a business person, this phone has a TON more functionality (... (continues)
