Are they now showing that the iPhone is not the only trendy looking touch phone on the market with this device which will be running on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional?

The HTC Touch 3G comes with HTC’s next generation TouchFLO covering over the sizeable cracks in Microsoft’s long serving Operating System.

Various Views of the Touch 3G

Connectivity wise, the Touch3G comes with HSDPA/WCDMA (Europe/Asia: 900/2100 MHz) offering up to 384 kbps up-link and 7.2 Mbps down-link speeds, and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, Bluetooth 2.0 with Enhanced Data Rate and A2DP for stereo wireless headsets and IEEE 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi. Naturally, there’s GPS and A-GPS onboard.

There’s a 3.2 megapixel camera for stills and video onboard with a microSD slot for expandable storage, plus HTC’s ExtUSB 11-pin mini-USB 2.0 and combined audio jack forcing users to fiddle about with proprietary headphone connections. Maybe one day…….soon, HTC and the others will realise that people want 3.5mm audio jacks!

The rounded, pocketable phone (102 mm X 53.6 mm X 14.5 mm) weighs in at 96 grams and is powered by a Qualcomm MSM7225 528 MHz processor supported by 256MB ROM and 192 MB RAM, with the 1100 mAh battery promising up to 360 minutes for WCDMA/400 minutes GSM talk time and a standby time up to 450 hours for WCDMA and 365 hours for GSM.

The exact release date is still unknown and but we expect to see this in shops sometime in September / October / November (ok, so I just don’t know) so why not head over to either Clove or Devicewire and pre-order yours now?
