HTC Touch comes with non-3G support or powerful multimedia capabilities of iPhone. However, this sleek Windows Mobile 6 gadget’s innovative touch interface makes this smart phone very touchable.

Nowadays, mobile phones with finger based user interfaces seems to be a new trend that coverage all high-end mobile phones. LG Prada KE850 was the first mobile phone that slide to this choice. After the first launch of HTC Touch and waiting to get a chance to look step closure to this product, finally I got a chance to post it.

HTC Touch with TouchFLO Touch-Screen Technology

HTC Touch with TouchFLO touch-screen technology "developed by HTC" is a mobile phone with innovative touch-screen user interfaces, also known across the net as the P3450 or Elf. Initially, HTC Touch might looks like iPhone in Windows Mobile version. Unlike Apple or LG that started from the ground up, building a new system that works only with a finger touch, HTC decided to build upon the existing operating system. HTC Touch comes along with Windows Mobile 6 and adds finger friendly control to it. The movement has made HTC Touch as a traditional stylus equipped Pocket PC that quite usable with a finger for most tasks.

HTC Touch Overview

HTC Touch with codename was “Elf” has better dimensions rather than a traditional mobile phone or PDA. HTC Touch comes with the form factor that slightly smaller than iPhone (4.5 x 2.4 x 0.5 inch), only 3.9 x 2.2 x 0.5 inch. Weight at 116gr, HTC Touch looks light for a Pocket PC device.

HTC Touch does not have many buttons, just a few-way navigator and a “Send” and “End” button for calls. The good news is this mobile phone comes along with a large, bright, 2.8-inch TFT touch-screen display. Unlike most stylus compatible touch-screens, HTC Touch’s display is flush mounted to the frame, and very sensitive surface extends well beyond the limits of its 240 x 320-pixel resolution. Moreover, you can say that HTC Touch is a Pocket PC device whose screen can easily be cleaned with a quick swipe on a pants leg. Unfortunately, when you are in sunlight, you might find out tat it is a little bid harder to read the letters on the screen.

HTC Touch uses a GPRS/EDGE connection for surfing on the Internet when we out of hotspot range. You need to be patience if you want to visit an image-heavy site. It will take longer time than usual. To read a text, you can start it within 30 seconds. HTC Touch supports stereo Bluetooth for crawling your favorite MP3, AAC and WMA files.

Because of HTC Touch is powered by the Window Mobile 6 Professional Edition, HTC Touch supports not only Direct Push e-mail, but also full version of Office Mobile. This means that we able to view and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint files. HTC Touch’s “brain” is powered by the 201 MHz OMAP 850 that proved to be a bit sluggish; it is not a weird thing if you opening a program or navigating drop-down menus and sometimes it might caused the HTC Touch to be hang.

Although iPhone can offers more competitive advantages than HTC Touch. However, HTC Touch can offer low-cost device with perfectly slim dimensions for people who want to have a multimedia access capability with a little flash.
