Highlighting GITEX 2008, the Middle East’s largest technology conference, the new phones, along with many other HTC handsets will be demonstrated within HTC’s booth located at F9-1B in Sheikh Rashid Hall. HTC will showcase the devices under three distinct categories – lifestyle, enterprise and navigation, which have been conceptualized to provide consumers with the choice and flexibility to select the mobile device that fits with their specific needs and lifestyle. Full press release after the break.

‘The HTC Touch 3G and Touch HD embody our commitment to build a family of touch phones that are not only powerful and stylish but also offer something to everyone,’

said Kevin Chen, General Manager, HTC Middle East and Africa.
‘Whether you’re a professional or a student you can now get HTC touch phones with a beautiful touch user experience.’

The HTC Touch HD is an entertainment-focused handset that transforms how people use the Mobile Internet and experience multimedia on the move. Integrating a large 3.8 inch wide-screen VGA display (WVGA), a standard 3.5mm audio jack and a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, the HTC Touch HD is the perfect device for multimedia fans.
HTC’s Gitex lifestyle category of devices will be anchored by the new Touch HD, HTC Touch 3G, Touch Diamond and the affordable HTC Touch Viva. The enterprise category is highlighted by the HTC Touch Pro™ and will also feature devices such as the new advanced HTC Advantage™ X7510 and the HTC Shift™ which are specifically designed for
mobile professionals.
The navigation category will include the Touch Cruise, TyTN II and P3470. These devices provide an accurate, yet easy to use navigation experience.

‘GITEX, being one of the region’s most important industry events, serves as a critical component of our overall marketing strategy in the UAE and the rest of the region. Accordingly, we have prepared a bigger and much more sophisticated exhibition featuring a powerful line-up of HTC products and a unique opportunity for customers to enjoy HTC’s high-end mobile experience,’

said Chen.
