HTC Prepares Touch HD, 3G Phones Amid Positive Gartner Mobile Report


So you say you still want an HTC phone with Windows Mobile on it, even with the G-Phone on its way? Well, HTC is complying with your masochistic tendencies by leaking their next-gen versions of their Touch phones, the HTC Touch HD and HTC Touch 3G.

It's not a surprise that HTC is pushing through their new product line to get in the smart phone conversation. Last week, HTC's stock in the global mobile market went up substantially with Gartner's Q2 phone survey, which revealed HTC mobile sales had doubled from 2007 and were poised to move up with the HTC G1 phone.

This was on top of a mostly subdued economic report that showed an overall lower growth rate for mobiles (at 15.7%) because of the bad economy. So if the table's hot, you gotta keep hitting, right?

At first glance, the HTC Touch HD T8282 looks like a nice multimedia phone, with a 3.8-inch 800 x 480 touch screen, a 5 mega pixel camera, and GPS/A-GPS ability. It also comes with HSDPA, 802.11g WiFi, and Bluetooth connectivity.


But the best thing about it is that it comes with a TouchFLO 3D UI, which makes navigation look cool, even though it likely won't improve the efficiency of navigating the OS.

The HTC Touch 3G, on the other hand, includes a 2.8-inch touch screen, 3.2 megapixel camera, and comes in four colors. It also comes with TouchFLO and Windows Mobile 6.1 like the HD.

Both will be available in the Asian and European markets by the end of the year, but there's no word when they'll be picked up here or how much they will cost.
