The Touch, announced by HTC today, is a Windows Mobile 6 smartphone that uses a new 3D user interface called TouchFLO. The new touchscreen technology allows users to interact with the screen by sweeping their fingers or stylus across the screen. From the homescreen users will find one-touch access to applications such as email and text messages. The screen will be able to differentiate between a finger or stylus. The screen measures 2.8 inches with 240 by 320 resolution. The Touch is a tri-band 900/1800/1900 GSM/EDGE device and also includes Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi, a 2 megapixel camera and a microSD slot. It comes in black or lime green and will be available in North America in the second half of 2007.

I knew this would happen.....

HTC is trying to copy the iphone screen technology, hopefully all other pocket pc manufacturers will follow suit, it's a great idea, and it also gives me another thing to throw in my apple loving buddies faces! I'll sell the iphone, but personally, my 8525 kicks the iphones @ss in ALMOST every way. HTC is one of the most innovative manufacturers that I have ever seen, I'm always impressed with the level of quality that their products bring to the table.....ok, sorry, I'm done now 🙄
Please the iphone commercials show more charater and features than the HTC will ever have. Oh it has windows mobile 6. So while you are always restarting your phone i'll be on my Iphone listening to my itunes surfing the web, and text messaging before...
How do you know that your 8525 kicks @$$? Have you field tested it more then a week? If not, your "opinion" is heresay, and not too valid...
I also suspected this would happen, but am incredible disappointed instead. Touch-screens are the worst. This is particularly true when trying to operate on "buttons" much smaller than a finger. I wasn't surprised by the lack of buttons on the iphon...

I wonder which carrier will get this phone??
It's sure the hell not Verizon, sadly! 👿
Considering it's a GSM model and I would think Cingular wouldn't want to compete with their own iphone, that just leaves T-Mobile...maybe. Or Cingular/AT&T may offer a more affordable alternative to the Apple product...we'll see.

First Impressions & 850MHz support

Someone over at Cnet got to play with one for 20 minutes. He gives some initial opinions of the interface and plans to have a more in depth review tomorrow (Thursday).

Also, "A version for the Americas with the requisite 850MHz support is planned for the second half of the year and should receive its pricing through individual carriers."
