Excerpt: Are you upgrading your smartphone to the upcoming HTC Touch HD? Many countries in Asia and Europe will start selling the Touch HD soon this month, but you can now read the latest Touch HD review on our sister site SlashGear. The article is part one of the two-part review, looking at the touchscreen, OS, GUI and keyboard entry, as well as the Touch HD’s internet abilities and more. Check out the review here .
Summary: The HTC Touch HD dazzles with its large, high-resolution touch screen, but the smartphone's feature set and performance is average at best. You can get much more for your money.
Pros: The HTC Touch HD boasts a spacious and sharp 3.8-inch WVGA touch screen, and offers integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. The Windows Mobile smartphone also includes the Opera Web browser, YouTube app, and a 5-megapixel camera.
Cons: The Touch HD doesn't support U.S. 3G bands. The smartphone can be sluggish at times, and the video performance is disappointing. It's also expensive.
Excerpt: HTC’s Touch HD has taken mobile display to the next level. For the vidiots like me a display this large sporting the kind of resolution it does is a godsend. I have to admit I was anxiously awaiting its arrival to the Indian market place and was proactively trying to get a handset to test even before it got here. Though that didn’t work out and disappointment was an understatement, I got it!
Excerpt: From the day we first caught a glimpse of the Touch HD, we’ve been in love. The device features a screen that has a larger size and much higher resolution than the iPhone, and its gorgeous, minimalist design, has caught the attention of many. Every time I show this to someone for the first time, the response is always the same: "Wow!" In this review, we’ll take a deep and thorough look at the sexy Touch HD, and will help you decide if it should be your next mobile phone.
Excerpt: One of the most expected Windows Mobile-based smartphones of last year, the HTC Touch HD made its appearance on the market a little bit later than its main rivals Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 and Samsung i900 Omnia. Although many comparisons have been made among the three devices, it is clear that HTC Touch HD is the most attractive and the flagship of Microsoft's mobile operating system.
Pros: The amazing touchscreen, the 5-megapixel camera, as well as the cool design are among the strong points of HTC Touch HD. I would also like to mention here the rich sales package that contains an 8GB microSD card. Music quality is also an improvement from the previous model, as well as the 3G signal reception and the in-call sound clarity.
Cons: I would've expected some improvements in the performance department. I was pretty disappointed to find that HTC Touch HD seems to have almost the same benchmark results as Touch Pro. Not that the latter is not good enough, but smartphones that feature the TouchFLO 3D interface always seem to lag when browsing the menus. The situation changes when this is not active. I would also like to mention the fact that HSDPA connectivity, as well as the other connectivity tools ...
Excerpt: Breck Morrison, Vice President of Technology with Handango , just recently stopped by and brought a nice little device with him; the HTC Touch HD. Mr. Morrison gave us some time with the device and allowed us to review it. Hit the jump for a small breakdown. The HTC Touch HD was launched back in November of last year. While unfortunately this device has never seen the American shores on a carrier, it is still available for order directly from HTC or online.
Summary: The HTC Touch HD was a great device overall, and it's
one of the best Windows Mobile phones of all time.For a price around 600
Euro , the HTC Touch HD is a device that you can't just pass through ,
and it's just 100-150 Euro more expensive than the Touch Diamond but has
more features like a 5 Megapixel camera or 3.5 mm audio jack.
Summary: We never experienced any problems with the HTC Touch HD's cellular module - the reception quality was okay, and the earpiece was just loud enough to make for audible calls in just about any environment, although it got nearly impossible to deal with at the top volume settings. The loudspeaker found in the HD is a tad louder than that of the Diamond or Touch Pro.
Excerpt: With new HTC Touch HD, you can enjoy music videos, films and streaming like you never thought possible on a mobile device. On the other hand, you can experience Internet browsing, giving you the feeling that you never left your laptop at home. All this can be done on a 3.8” WVGA screen, with touch-responsive TouchFLO 3D.
