Canada today launched the
smartphone, offering customers the ability to add unlimited access to the
Internet and E-Mail for just CAD$ 7 a month.
The HTC Touch runs on the Windows Mobile 6 Professional operating system,
offering mobile versions of familiar Microsoft Windows applications, and
features an extra-large touch-screen display, expandable MicroSD memory, a 2
megapixel camera and camcorder, speakerphone and stereo Bluetooth compatibility.
The HTC Touch features
TouchFLO, a touch
screen technology developed by HTC that allows for simple and intuitive finger
navigation of the screen.
You can sweep your finger upwards to launch an animated interface, which can
be spun through by swiping left or right across the display. The interface
provides easy access to the most popular menus as well as music, mobile browser,
E-Mails, text messages, photos and contacts. With a slide of their finger, users
can open, scroll, select and rotate.
With Bell Mobility's mobile browser feature, users can add unlimited access

Google Mail and Yahoo! Mail) without additional charges.
