Not yet HTC's latest Windows Mobile smartphone but already unveiled last year, HTC Corporation just announced its first entry into the advanced Korean market with the introduction of the HTC Touch Dual. Launched in exclusive alliance with the local carrier, SK Telecom, the HTC Touch Dual integrates HTC’s advanced intuitive TouchFLO technology and slide-out keypad in a compact design. Offering one touch access to E-Mail, messages, contacts, pictures and more, the Touch Dual provides an uncompromising touch and keypad experience for easy and convenient dialing and messaging.

With the goal of appealing to a broad base of consumer targets, the slim and stylish Touch Dual is available for the first time anywhere in the world in a pearl white color.

The to Microsoft's Window Mobile 6.1 platform upgraded smartphone gives quick access to multitasking with MS Office programs like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. HTC and SK Telecom decided to launch the slide-out 16-key keyboard version and the 3.5G HSDPA gives web browsing access anywhere at fast speeds. The domestic version is 3G ready, with a 2.0 Megapixel camera for shooting videos and a second camera to make video calls. Quite interesting are the supported bands which are quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 850/900/1800/1900 Mhz for international roaming and HSDPA at 850/1600 Mhz for use in Korea.

The Touch Dual Phone is available from SKT stores only and priced at approximately 500,000 Korean Won. Some consumers may be able to purchase it for less with certain subsidies and sales promotions.

Also, as part of today’s announcement, HTC will establish a Korean office and will be introducing additional devices later this year.

Cheers ~ Arne
