HTC Touch HD

Today, HTC announced the HTC Touch HD, a significant evolution to the classic HTC Touch.

The HTC Touch HD has been conceived for both business and consumer users alike, who demand style and performance and do not think the two are mutually exclusive. The HTC Touch HD is the ideal handset for people who are embracing the mobile multimedia shift but who do not wish to forgo quality, simply by being on the move.

The HTC Touch HD is powered by a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7201a processo and Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional with TouchFLO 3D. It comes with quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band HSDPA (the European 900/2100MHz bands) connectivity, a large 3.8-inch WVGA display (480 by 800), 288MB RAM and 512MB ROM, GPS/A-GPS, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, a 5MP camera and front-facing VGA one, a 3.5mm headphone jack located at the top, a microSD card slot, and a 1350mAh battery. The HTC Touch HD will measure 115 by 62.8 by 12 millimeters (4.5 by 2.5 by 0.47 inches) and weigh 146.4 grams (5.2 ounces) with battery.

The HTC Touch HD will make its debut in Europe in Q4 2008 with other global markets to follow afterwards. Pricing information was not revealed.
