Summary: The HTC Touch Cruise offers road warriors and travel lovers great navigation features in a compact smartphone; we just wish it had a better screen.
Pros: The HTC Touch Cruise offers great navigation and ships with U.S. maps. The HTC Footprints application provides a nice way to record highlights of your trip. The Windows Mobile smartphone also features 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 3.2-megapixel camera.
Cons: The screen isn't the sharpest, and it washes out in bright sunlight. It's also a bit small for in-car navigation. The onscreen keyboard is cramped, and expandable memory is limited when using maps.
Summary: Overall a well-rounded device that suffers from only a few setbacks. Look past these however and you’ll find the Touch Cruise intuitive to use and quite well stacked in terms of features. It’s not too shabby on the performance front either.
Pros: Interface looks great and is intuitive to use, quick performer, good battery life, control wheel works well.
Cons: Lacks a flash for its camera, body retains fingerprints.
Summary: The Cruise is our favourite of the current HTC line-up and compares well to most of the competition. HTC does a good job of making the touchscreen experience easy to use, however, it won't be for everyone.
Pros: Attractive looking handset, HSDPA and Wi-Fi, Excellent TouchFlo interface, Bundled navigation software and accessories
Cons: Average processing, Below average battery life, Full touchscreen input won't appeal to everyone
