known as the HTC
Touch Pro, AT&T Inc. and HTC Corp. today announced the availability of the
new HTC FUZE which provides users with a familiar QWERTY keyboard paired with
HTC's intuitive, graphic-rich TouchFLO 3D touch-screen user interface for easy
one-touch access to a range of fun and powerful features.
Powered by AT&T's 3G network and Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional,
the HTC FUZE is a compact yet powerful communications tool with a smooth gloss
black finish and a distinctive and unique faceted backplate. The HTC FUZE
features a sharp, 2.8" VGA touch screen for touch-sensitive navigation control,
complete with three-dimensional animated transitions.
For E-Mail, messaging and other data input, the HTC FUZE also comes equipped
with a full QWERTY keyboard, which was designed specifically for AT&T and slides
out from the smartphone's side.
A useful "zoom in, zoom out" feature makes it especially fun and easy to access
the Web via the included Opera browser, which provides for desktop-like Web page
renderings and user interactions.
