HTC launches iPhone-like Touch smartphone


With all the hype surrounding the iPhone, it’s no surprise to see others chancing their arms with something similar. Next in this ever-growing queue is HTC, which has just launched its Touch handset.

This Windows Mobile 6-powered device uses TouchFLO technology, which replaces allows you to control everything with a wipe of the finger across the 2.8-inch screen. That leaves a very minimalist handset, with just a solitary button to hang up from your call. Other features include a two megapixel camera, wireless connectivity via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, microSD card slot (with 1GB card supplied) and five hours of talk time. Downside is a lack of 3G connectivity.

It’s being offered via Orange and T-Mobile as of today, with the US seeing it in the latter part of 2007. The UK price is probably dependent on contract, but a sim-free version is available for 449 Euros.

One thought on “HTC launches iPhone-like Touch smartphone

  • The LG KE850 (aka Prada) was released nearly two months before the iPhone. It was submitted to a design competition six months before anyone knew what the iPhone was, and had published specs over a year before we saw the Apple unit.
