HTC Touch HD (Unlocked) review:

 

Back in October 2008, we received the unfortunate news (through Twitter, of all things) that HTC would not bring its HTC Touch HD smartphone to the United States. The company wrote "... by the time we could bring Touch HD to the States, it would be old...

The HTC Touch HD boasts a spacious and sharp 3.8-inch WVGA touch screen, and offers integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. The Windows Mobile smartphone also includes the Opera Web browser, YouTube app, and a 5-megapixel camera.

The Touch HD doesn't support U.S. 3G bands. The smartphone can be sluggish at times, and the video performance is disappointing. It's also expensive.

The HTC Touch HD dazzles with its large, high-resolution touch screen, but the smartphone's feature set and performance is average at best. You can get much more for your money.

HTC Touch HD

 

The Touch HD is a fantastic phone, if you can afford one. It out-performs every HTC phone previously and looks fantastic doing it.

Beautiful, large display, Excellent performance, Good battery life, 3.5mm headphone socket, microSD expansion with 8GB card

Some instances of lag, No free navigation software, It's one of the most expensive smartphones available

HTC Touch HD Review

 

One of the most expected Windows Mobile-based smartphones of last year, the HTC Touch HD made its appearance on the market a little bit later than its main rivals Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 and Samsung i900 Omnia. Although many comparisons have been made...

The amazing touchscreen, the 5-megapixel camera, as well as the cool design are among the strong points of HTC Touch HD. I would also like to mention here the rich sales package that contains an 8GB microSD card. Music quality is also an improvement...

I would've expected some improvements in the performance department. I was pretty disappointed to find that HTC Touch HD seems to have almost the same benchmark results as Touch Pro. Not that the latter is not good enough, but smartphones that feature...

HTC Touch HD Review

 

Its combination of a large, high-resolution touchscreen, fast processor, and excellent battery life makes it a winner for those looking for a highly-capable smartphone

As an unlocked smartphone, this device is being sold directly to the public in the U.S. The up-side of this is it can be used with any GSM carrier; the down-side is that the Touch HD comes without a carrier subsidy. Expect to pay at least $700
