Last week, HTC officially announced the HTC Touch HD, HTC's new flagship smartphone and thanks to O2 Germany, which will exclusively launch the Touch HD in Germany, over the weekend I had some quality time with an early marketing sample. The HTC Touch HD features HTC TouchFLO 3D which runs on Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and it's powered by a Qualcomm MSM7201a CPU at 528 MHz which is said to support quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/2100 MHz. Furthermore, WiFi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, GPS/AGPS and an FM radio are on board.

The large 3.8" touchscreen features a WVGA (480 x 800 WVGA) screen resolution and on the back, the smartphone sports a 5.0 megapixel camera with auto focus but without a photo-light while the second front facing camera supports VGA. The HTC Touch HD is backed up by 512 MB ROM and 288 MB RAM which can be expanded via microSD memory cards (SDHC capable). At a size of 115 x 62.8 x 12 mm the device weights 146.4 gram.

Quite unique and interesting for a Windows Mobile Professional device is the fact that the HTC Touch HD isn't featuring a D-Pad anymore but it's used through the touchscreen only, in addition to the 4 function buttons bellow the screen:








Please note that I don't have the device anymore but returned it. Nevertheless, feel free to ask your questions in the comments bellow.
