HTC Touch HD: The Real i-Phone Contender
HTC is probably one of the first to release a salvo of iPhone contenders into the market, and while most of them have failed to put up a decent battle with Apple’s premier mobile phone, it looks like they've kept their secret weapon hidden from the public eye for the past couple of months just waiting to be unveiled at the proper time. The HTC Touch HD is not your typical HTC Touch. It’s actually the granddaddy of the entire line boasting of features that will put to shame every little model they’ve already unleashed to the public. First of is its huge and brilliant 3.8-inch WVGA widescreen display. It’s the biggest so far in the HTC Touch line and beats the iPhone which only comes with a 3.5-inch screen. Other notable specs include a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, a secondary camera in the front, 3G/HSDPA, WiFi, Bluetooth, AGPS, 288MB RAM, 3.5mm headphone jack, Google Maps, and Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional OS with HTC TouchFLO 3D. All of this combine for the speediest and most feature-packed Touch to date. It’s expected to hit the European market in the last quarter of this year and other global markets thereafter. Unfortunately, no pricing was mentioned. Hopefully, it'll reach our shores before the year ends and I highly doubt it'll be more expensive than the current price of the iPhone.
