Summary: The classic HTC Touch is truly a milestone in the smartphone industry. When the device was first released (prior to the much anticipated iPhone 1), the Touch offered an intuitive skin (HTC TouchFlo) on top of Windows Mobile which made using it much easier than before (Windows Mobile was not optimized for finger friendly touch). The fancy cube-like interface added kinetic scrolling, a new Camera interface, and other specially designed apps for a self-sustaining ecosystem.

Excerpt: This has been a decent little device for the last several months (got it used from a buddy who upgraded to iPhone, lucky bast*rd). Was NOT very impressed with the standard WM 6.0 that it came with, but thankfully HTC and Bell Canada (my provider) have a free update to WM 6.1. That made a significant difference for me, longer battery life and more stability. Eventually I got jealous of folks that had Touch-Flo on their devices.
Excerpt: If your new to the PDA/WinMo scene, this phone is a good place to start.The phone is really only suitable for urban areas, and the battery requires constant attention/charging. I havent had the best run on mine, so far the PCB has been replaced twice due to faults.
Excerpt: i recently got this phone, it does everything that i really need it to do but sometimes it can be difficult to do those things. before i got this phone a while back i had the moto q9c it was a good phone but the windows based just really bothered me on how much i had to go in and "kill" running programs. i figured i would give windows another chance since they have 6.1 now, and it didn't disapoint, so i will deffenitly get windows based now. some pros of the phone is...
Excerpt: First and foremost if you have this phone or are planning on buying it you need to immediately upgrade the o/s to windows mobile 6.1 Pro. This update is available at http://www.htc.com/us/support.aspx . The 2 most notable upgrades are a full qwerty touch keyboard and the Opera browser. Before the upgrade texting on this phone is literally mission impossible, afterward it becomes much easier, but still not the best. The opera browser is the shiz!
Excerpt: I'm returning my second Touch, before the 1st thirty days is up and I'm getting a Blackberry 8330. Pros: The Touch does everything that you would want from a touch phone. Cons: Although I had major issues with reception and the Nav feature, the local store swapped me out of the first one and the problems were resolved. If you considering this phone and you have had issues with accidental abuse of any phones in the past, BEWARE! This phone is EXTREMELY FRAGILE.
Excerpt: I upgraded to this phone from a Motorola Q. I've had this phone for about a month which has given me enough time to play with it, add software and tweak it a bit. Understand, that my rating is based upon what I have added to the phone to make it more usable as out of the box it is a little limited. I have played around with Touch Commander, SPB Mobile Shell and have recently downloaded the Iphone Theme.

Excerpt: I have patiently waited for this phone since it's announcement last year. I have owned it for about a week now. Here are my initial thoughts: Pros: - Great size/weight. Works for me even though I have large hands. - Home Screen. Very attractive. I especially enjoy the weather feature. - Going through the various applications are very swift. - 2.0 mega-pixel camera takes great photos. Also has a slide show feature which is similar to the iphone. Very nice. - Speakerphone.
Excerpt: I've had the phone for a week and a half, now, so I've had the time to get more acquainted with it. I'm coming from a Windows Mobile phone (WM 5), so the OS wasn't much of an adjustment for me. Basically, I like the phone, although I have some negatives. I've added software such as SPB Shell 2.0 and TouchPad 3.0 to enhance the touch control.
