previous photoview of the upcoming
O2 Xda Guide -
since last week
also known as the 2009
Cruise - today we are presenting a 20 minutes detailed
upcoming Xda Windows Mobile Professional smartphone. While the O2 Xda Guide runs
on Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, it uses HTC's
enhancements to make the use of the touchscreen even more comfortable. With the
O2 Xda Guide/2009 HTC Touch Cruise, HTC also introduces two new TouchFLO
Footprints and Maps Search.
Footprints, which can be either launched from TouchFLO or a dedicated
hardware key, allows the user to geo-tag photos as well as adding notes to
geo-tagged photos. Furthermore it's possible to show the geo-tagged photo on the
Google Maps Mobile or to navigate to the location, using preinstalled
Navigator 7. Maps Search allows the user to search in Google Maps Mobile for
business or addresses, straight from the Today screen while results are
displayed in Google Maps Mobile again.
Last but not least, HTC introduces NaviPanel with the O2 Xda Guide/HTC Touch
Cruise. NaviPanel automatically starts as soon as the device is put into the car
kit. It gives one touch access to the most important tasks and applications,
including the possibility to navigate to a predefined or recent location as well
as launching Footprints or the phone interface.
