HTC Touch brings new finger interface to mobile devices
HTC Corp. has announced the global launch of the HTC Touch, a small mobile phone that the company says brings in a new concept in intuitive touch screen navigation.

The HTC Touch offers a new and unique way of controlling touch screen-based devices by recognising and responding to the sweep of a finger across the screen. It is intelligent enough to distinguish between finger and stylus input and then respond accordingly.

A variety of communication, entertainment and professional capabilities are packed on this new device, including a newly HTC-designed homescreen providing one-touch access to emails, text messages, calendar appointments and contacts, as well as current weather conditions and forecasts for hundreds of cities around the world.

The HTC Touch is the first device to feature TouchFLO, the new underlying touch screen technology developed by HTC. Consumers simply sweep their finger up the display to launch an animated, three-dimensional interface comprising three screens: Contacts, Media and Applications. The interface can be spun by swiping a finger right or left across the display, providing access to the features consumers use most.

TouchFLO also enhances finger touch scrolling and browsing of Web pages, documents, messages and contact lists.

Based on Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Professional, the HTC Touch includes Outlook Mobile, Office Mobile, Windows Live and the capabilities to run third-party applications. Users can surf the web with Internet Explorer Mobile, send and receive emails, chat on Messenger and send files to their own web space through Windows Live.

Measuring only 99.9mm (L) x 58mm (W) x 13.9mm (T), and weighing 112g including the battery, the HTC Touch comes with 64 MB RAM, 128 MB flash memory and a 1GB microSD card for external storage. The 2.8" LCD sports 240 x 320 pixels and its rechargeable Li-Ion battery (1100 mAh) can provide up to 200 hours standby and up to five hours talk time.

Users will be able to connect to GSM/GPRS/EDGE (900, 1800,1900 MHz) networks, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) and Bluetooth 2.0

The HTC Touch is now available in the United Kingdom and will be released later this month in Asia and throughout Europe. The North and Latin American version of the HTC Touch will be available in the second half of 2007.
