HTC Touch HD


HTC's Touch HD has taken mobile display to the next level. For the vidiots like me a display this large sporting the kind of resolution it does is a godsend. I have to admit I was anxiously awaiting its arrival to the Indian market place and was...

The large display is the only feature that actually makes the handset's interface look and feel a little better, but even that had its quirks. None of the handset's other relevant features except for the radio and music player are worth talking about...

HTC Touch HD (Unlocked)


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 is simply the next big thing in the Windows Mobile realm. And big is by no means limited to size. Indeed, the handset does come out a little too hefty but the feature pack is the kind to make you forget about size. The massive screen and...

The 3G handset allows users to surf the Web over mobile networks or via Wi-Fi 802.11b/g. The smartphone works on WCDMA 900/2100MHz networks and supports quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
