Following O2 Germany's announcement of the O2 Xda Guide (see our recent photoview here),  HTC Corporation today announced its own version of the so far codenamed HTC Iolite which is now called HTC Touch Cruise. The 2009 HTC Touch Cruise, an update to 2008's popular HTC GPS device of the same name, boasts a new, more compact design and a host of new capabilities to offer a richer and more intuitive experience in one powerful package.
Powered by a Qualcomm MSM 7225 CPU at 528 MHz, the device features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA in addition to Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, WiFi b/g and aGPS.

The HTC Touch Cruise comes with a 2.8" QVGA touchscreen and sports a 3.2 megapixel fixfocus camera. The inbuilt 256 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM can be expanded by microSD cards.

The new HTC Touch Cruise is the first mobile phone to offer HTC Footprints, an application experience that enables people to permanently chronicle their special moments by capturing a digital postcard on their phone. Once captured, Footprints provides the ability to take notes and an audio clip of that favorite restaurant or special place while identifying its specific geographical location. In addition to identifying each postcard with its specific GPS co-ordinates, Footprints also auto-names each postcard with its general location or area.

Flipping back through their photos, HTC Touch Cruise users will be able to retrace their steps to that exact location in just a few touches. Unlike other devices with geo-tagging functionality, HTC Footprints works effectively outdoors and indoors, offering a more accurate record of location for future reference and navigation.

The HTC Touch Cruise is also an advanced in-car navigation system. When placed into its accompanying car cradle, the HTC Touch Cruise automatically transforms its user interface into an easy-to-use, one-touch interface that provides seamless turn-by-turn directions.

The new HTC Touch Cruise will be available to customers across all major global markets in spring 2009. A price wasn't announced today.

Cheers ~ Arne
