Orange has announced that it has exclusive UK rights to the HTC Touch HD, arriving here in early November.
Featuring a 3.8-inch high-res (480 x 800) widescreen touch screen, it’s built for multimedia. It offer access to Orange’s own mobile TV service, comes with a five megapixel auto-focus camera, has a full Internet browser, and uses HTC’s TouchFLO 3D user interface (bolted on to Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional).
Other features include a second VGA camera, 512MB of internal memory and SDHC/microSD expansion card slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
It claims a talk time of 390 minutes and standby time of 450 hours.
Orange has the exclusive until 2009, costing £79.99 on an 18-month, £40pm contract. Interestingly, it looks like Orange isn’t prepared to let you loose on the mobile Internet just yet, despite the handset urging you to use it online, as the package only gives you 250MB of browsing per month, and no mention of free Wi-Fi hotspots. Disappointing.
