Following the previous photoview of HTC's upcoming HTC Touch HD, this 24 minutes videoview of HTC's new flagship Windows Mobile Professional smartphone shows you the hardware as well as software developments of the Touch HD. Thanks to O2 Germany, which will exclusively carry the HTC Touch HD in Germany, I got my hands on an early prototype and while the ROM built wasn't anything close to a release candidate, the hardware looked pretty final already.
The HTC Touch HD is a real power-horse featuring a Qualcomm CPU at 528 MHz as well as supporting quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE but only dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA up to 7.2 Mbps. Other wireless technologies supported are WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS/aGPS and an FM radio:

Quite interesting is the large 3.8" screen which supports a WVGA resolution at 800 x 480 pixel and unique is the design concept because HTC left the so far typical D-Pad in favor of a full touchscreen experience. All you get are four function keys bellow the screen but this keys are finally touch sensitive and provides tactile feedback with an additional emulated click sound. However, the tactile feedback is (yet?) used for the four function keys only, not for the soft-keyboard or anything else.

While I had to return the device already, please feel free to ask your questions in the comments below. I will try my best to answer each but since I don't have the HTC Touch HD anymore, I might not be able to answer every question (yet).

Cheers ~ Arne
