LAPTOP Magazine
2 July 2008
  • Summary: If you're a world traveler looking to avoid a contract, you'll appreciate the HTC Touch's voice quality. However, while the TouchFLO interface itself is smooth, overall this Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional phone is slower than we'd like.

  • Conclusion: I have too many phones on my desk, including a Nokia N95-3 , LG Vu , iPhone , HTC Touch Diamond, Treo 750 , Samsung BlackJack II and more. Yet I find myself gravitating to the Touch Dual thanks to it's comfortable and pocketable design, fast 3G, Windows Mobile power/tweak-ability and HTC's TouchFLO...
  • Pros: Fast, TouchFLO is smooth and responsive, good looking, soft-touch finish keeps the device safely in hand and doesn't require constant polishing (though the display might). Stable, very fast 3G HSDPA speeds on AT&T, strong reception, good voice quality and volume. MS Voice Command is a plus as is ...
  • Cons: No WiFi or GPS.

HTC Touch Dual

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Touch Dual couples HTC's TouchFLO interface shell with a fast processor and enough RAM for running third-party programs. But at this price, the handset's lack of Wi-Fi, GPS, and a decent software bundle are troubling.
  • Pros: Unlocked. 3G-capable. Good video playback performance. TouchFLO interface looks good and speeds up common tasks.
  • Cons: No Wi-Fi or GPS. Weak software bundle. Cumbersome Windows Mobile 6 interface lurks just underneath the TouchFLO surface.

  • Conclusion: By introducing the slider, HTC has been able to hide various Windows Mobile shortcut buttons, so the front of the casing only has Call and End buttons and a navigation key. This makes things look pretty sleek.

  • Conclusion: HTC Touch clears the path for the WM6 Professional line of fashion smartphones. Dual is another way to say “slimmer-faster-newer.” The manufacturer should be given credit, not only for adding a slider, but for developing most elements of the interface too.
  • Pros: Beautiful and elegant design, Effective TouchFlo function, 3G (UMTS/HSDPA) support
  • Cons: Mediocre playback quality, Lack of Wi-Fi, Not a global phone

HTC Touch Dual. Part two

Mobile Review
27 January 2008
  • Summary: The Touch Dual’s reception quality was never an issue in our tests; the loudspeaker’s sound volume was pretty average, and so was the communicator’s vibro alert, although we had no trouble feeling it in our pockets.
