HTC also announce the Touch 3G

image In another busy day of Windows Mobile handset announcement HTC have announced another handset this time the HTC Touch 3G. This is the updated Touch device and is more like the upgrade we were expecting after the disappointing looking Opal we saw the other week. Check after the break for the full specs and pictures.

The successor to a category-defining original… the HTC Touch™ 3G propels you even further into the touch experience, making voice and text communication, web browsing and media playing more pleasurable than ever before.

This isn’t the web compromised for mobile… it’s the web as you always wanted it be on a mobile. Browse full-screen pages delivered at broadband-speed, all displayed on a large, razor-sharp screen for an unparalleled mobile internet experience whenever you call upon it.

A perfect marriage of technical innovation and eye-catching design, the HTC Touch™ 3G’s looks are just as striking as its image Internet credentials… a range of hot colours are available that enhance the modern, lightweight shape, making it both a sensational user experience and a bold declaration of style.

Touch with more passion than ever before… style, sensation and speed. Experience Touch in 3G.
