The HTC Touch will debut in Hong Kong very soon and Hong Kong CSL will be the sole distibutor here. The phone lacks 3G, but will have Edge. It will be released with the WM6 Professional OS and includes Oulook Mobile, Office Mobile and Windows Live.
Probably the most unique feature of this phone is it’s intuitive fingertip touch screen navigation.
HTC Touch™ represents extensive research and development and the
conviction that fingertip control will enable more efficient, natural
and intuitive touch screen navigation. The groundbreaking HTC Touch™
offers a new and unique way of controlling touch screen-based devices
by recognising and responding to the sweep of a finger across the
screen. It is even intelligent enough to distinguish between finger and
stylus input and can respond accordingly.
Sounds like a hint of Iphone here. Innovative or not, it hopefully will be a user friendly experience. If it turns out to be a success I guess we’ll be seeing more HTC units with their fingertip control in future.
