Following yesterday's official announcement of the HTC Touch Dual Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphone, today I had some time to play with it and snapping some photos for your enjoyment.
Overall I can say that the Touch Dual is lovely and well done. It's a little bit smaller than the HTC Touch but also a little bit longer and I'm quite impressed from the enhanced TouchFLO user interface as well as from the QWERTY keyboard which works pretty good. I'm sure the 20-keys version will become the bestseller (you see photographed bellow), not the traditional phone keypad version.

Furthermore HTC confirmed, that neither the original HTC Touch Dual nor any operator versions will sport WiFi as you might have seen rumored on the web. The explanation is simple: there was no space for WiFi or GPS so it's not an option which carriers can deselect but it's physically not built-in:

The HTC Touch Dual will becomes available across Europe during November. A review should follow as soon as I get a test device.

Cheers ~ Arne

If they can cram in all Bluetooth, WIFI, slide out keyboard 400mhz processor into the HTC S730, I am sure they can do the same to the Touch Dual Slide.  Not having room is a poor excuse considering smaller devices they produce have it all built in

What would those smaller devices be then?
