HTC Touch Officially Unveiled

Today, HTC unveiled its competitor with the iPhone: the Touch. Known formerly as the Elf, the Touch features Windows Mobile 6 with a finger-touch display that uses HTC’s TouchFlo technology. Like the iPhone, you can use your fingers to navigate the phone’s menus and such or you can use a stylus if that’s to your liking. You can interact with a 3D-interface via your fingers and explore whole new worlds. Or at least your contact list.

The specs are pretty nice too. You’ll find a big, bright 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen, 128MB of ROM, 64MB of RAM, a 2-megapixel camera, 1GB microSD card included, tri-band GSM, EDGE, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth, and Windows Mobile 6. Not bad at all. Top it off with the TouchFlo technology and you have one of the best looking Windows Mobile devices out there. The Touch is currently available in the UK with plans for a US launch by the end of the year. We’re getting one later tonight to play with, so keep a lookout for a gallery of pics and a video review.
