Excerpt: The latest touchscreen offering from HTC is one of the first to feature Windows Mobile 6.5, but still falls somewhat short of the mark. What we like Despite being one of the first phones to be sporting Microsoft’s new Windows 6.5 OS, it’s actually not apparent at first, since HTC has reskinned it...
Summary: HTC has packed the latest version of Windows Mobile, 6.5, onto the teeny Touch2 smart phone. While the operating system is an improvement over previous versions, tapping away at the small, resistive touchscreen is a disappointing experience.
Pros: Feature-packed Windows Mobile 6.5 is finger-friendlier than its predecessor; appealing TouchFlo home screen; choice of Opera or new Internet Explorer Web browser; good keyboard layout; useful My Phone online syncing service.
Cons: Windows Mobile still isn't the most user-friendly operating system; resistive touchscreen craves a stylus; tiny on-screen keyboard, with no landscape option; slightly sluggish; relatively small screen; no multi-touch capability.
Excerpt: The Touch 2 runs Windows Mobile 6.5 with HTC's own TouchFlo interface over the top. Running a finger along the icons at the bottom of the display scrolls through various screens. Useful information, such as a clock, the current weather and your next appointment, are displayed on the Home screen.
Summary: Soviel vorweg: Das HTC Touch 2 ist so einiges - aber keine echte Zockermaschine. Dazu fehlt es dem Smartphone an einem kapazitiven Touchscreen, Bewegunssensor oder einem Joystick. Sie können es sehr gut zum surfen im Web benutzen, oder um mal eben zu schauen, was es bei Facebook Neues gibt.
