HTC Iolite becomes the All New HTC Touch Cruise

There have been a lot of rumours about the The HTC Iolite since it appeared to have been leaked on the eXpansys website a few weeks ago and today the Iolite has just appeared on the HTC website as the ‘All New HTC Touch Cruise’ (aka. HTC Touch Cruise ’09). If the recent wave of HTC handset leaks is anything to go by then I suspect that this is just the first of many new handsets to appear on the site.

Your Life Chronicles
We all strive to capture and hang on to the moments that touch our life. The HTC Touch Cruise does just that. Take a picture and the HTC Your Life ChroniclesFootprints automatically saves your location. Embellish your instance further by adding the thoughts that surrounded that special moment. You can even grab the sound of your friend’s laughter to go along with your memory.
The best part about HTC Footprints is that you can use them to find your way back to the hidden little café you visited last year, or the elm tree under which your loved one popped the big question. And if you want, you can simply flip through your collection and laugh about the times that helped create who you are today. HTC Footprints is like a journal of your life’s highlights, making them always within your reach.

Introducing HTC Footprints

The new HTC Touch Cruise is the first mobile phone to offer HTC Footprints, an application experience that enables people to permanently chronicle their special moments by capturing a digital postcard on their phone. Once captured, Footprints provides the ability to take notes and an audio clip of that favourite restaurant or special place while identifying its specific geographical location. In addition to identifying each postcard with its specific GPS co-ordinates, Footprints also auto-names each postcard with its general location or area.

Flipping back through their photos, HTC Touch Cruise users will be able to retrace their steps to that exact location in just a few touches. Unlike other devices with geo-tagging functionality, HTC Footprints works effectively outdoors and indoors, offering a more accurate record of location for future reference and navigation.

“Just as we have seen GPS technology transform how people navigate to new places, we are now seeing location-based applications like HTC Footprints changing how we interact and carry our memories,” said Peter Chou, President and CEO, HTC Corporation.
