HTC Touch HD: mobile Internet and entertainment handset coming this Winter

Mobile phones


HTC has announced its latest handset, the Touch HD, which boasts a 3.8-inch wide touchscreen display, five megapixel camera, expandable memory, and TouchFLO 3D user interface.

Big handsets with large screen real estate have grown in popularity since the likes of the iPhone and Viewty, and this is surely HTC’s most convincing competition yet.

This 3G phone can utilise HSDPA at up to 7.2Mbps where available, plus Wi-Fi. The HTC TouchFLO 3D interface sits on top of Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. There’s 512MB of internal Flash memory and 288MB of RAM, plus microSD/SDHC memory card expansion.

Screen resolution is 480 x 800, the primary five megapixel autofocus camera is complemented by a second VGA camera for video conferencing. There’s also GPS/A-GPS and Bluetooth.

Talk time is up to 6.5 hours, and standby time of up to 450 hours. No specs on how the battery fares on other items is available yet.

More detailed specs, pricing, and networks will be available when the handset launches across Europe in the fourth quarter. Hopefully there’ll be some better pictures of the handset, too.

One for the Christmas list, perhaps?
