HTC may not have any plans to release the HTC Touch HD in North America but Expansys is bringing the European version to North American shores. If the lack of North American 3G bands is not a deterrent, you can head on over and place your pre-order.
Both the Canadian and U.S. sites show an expected release date of November 11th. In Canada, it is currently being offered in Canada for CAD$1,019.99 and in the U.S. for USD$799.99.
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.
So, who’s getting one?
