HTC Touch HD Exclusive to Orange UK

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 08:05 AM

"Orange today announced that the HTC Touch HD handset will be available in the UK from early November, exclusively on the Orange network. The Touch HD is a premium multimedia enhanced mobile handset, designed with a focus on entertainment that is set transform how people experience multimedia on the move. Its extensive 3.8 inch, high resolution, widescreen WVGA touchscreen offers users stunning clarity and vibrant colours, providing an unrivalled experience when watching movies or using Orange’s mobile TV service, browsing the internet on Orange’s high speed data network (3G+) or even scanning through photos taken with its 5 megapixel auto focus camera. The Touch HD also renders websites quickly and in full-page width, providing a browsing experience closer to that using fixed line broadband and allowing users to navigate more easily. What’s more, the stylish new device features HTC’s beautiful TouchFLO 3D user interface to provide quick and intuitive access to the people, messages and content that are most important, and a standard 3.5mm headphone jack has been incorporated, allowing customers to use high-performance headphones with the device for the best possible sound quality."

Exclusivity sucks, but at least it's better than nothing. To our UK readers, if you're in the market for a new device and like what you see in the Touch HD, then starting early November, you'll be able to pick it up with Orange from £79.99 (~ $126 USD) on a £40 (~ $63 USD) per month plan for 18 months. The plan includes a monthly quota of 250MB, which should be enough for light e-mail access and the odd browse.

HTC to USA: "No Touch HD for You"

Imagine witnessing the unveiling of a spectacular device, only to be denied access to it through local channels. Imagine no more. Just yesterday, HTC tweeted that the Touch HD would not be released in the US. And, as you would expect, a good number of Touch HD fans made it clear that they weren't happy. HTC's response was pretty much salt in the wound, with the company suggesting that it previously had no idea that there was huge demand for high-end devices in the US, but now it knows! There's your cue for some facepalm action.

HTC Touch HD: Eye-Candy, Lots of It!

The iPhone 3G may only be a mere two months old, but it's already looking lackluster next to the HTC Touch HD. If you're not already drooling, take a look at the video after the break, as well as the pictures at MobiFrance (translated version). As revealed on Monday, the Touch HD packs a Qualcomm MSM 7201A 528MHz processor, 288MB RAM, 512MB ROM, a 5.0-megapixel camera, and a gorgeous 3.8" WVGA (480 x 800) touch screen, with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, A-GPS, an FM radio, and a microSD slot thrown in for good measure. It's just too bad this particular version only sports 900/2100MHz HSDPA connectivity; so, if you're in the US, Australia, or anywhere else that uses 850MHz, you'll have to wait your turn.

HTC Touch HD Makes an Early Appearance

X1 and Omnia? Uh... never heard of 'em. What you see on-screen is an HTC Touch HD sized the same as an iPhone 3G, but with so much more: a 480 x 800 (WVGA) touch screen, a Qualcomm 7201A 528MHz CPU, 288MB RAM, 512MB ROM, HSDPA connectivity, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 5.0-megapixel camera (sans flash, unfortunately), a microSD slot, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. Word on the street is it'll be here before Christmas.

Jump the break for an extra shot. Hit MoDaCo for the rest.
