HTC launches new 3.5G device
Dubai, November 5, 2007
HTC Corp, a leading provider of Windows Mobile-based smart devices, has launched the HTC Touch Dual that integrates 3.5G wireless connectivity with a sleek and innovative sliding keypad design.
The HTC Touch Dual follows HTC’s heritage of bringing a new level of simplicity to the powerful and feature-rich device experience that today’s mobile users demand, said a statement. Taking a design cue from the stylish HTC Touch, the HTC Touch Dual adds high speed 3G/HSDPA connectivity and a slide out keypad into a thin and narrow device designed for easy typing.
The HTC Touch Dual is the second device to feature HTC’s TouchFLO, the same gesture-recognition technology as that in the HTC Touch, but now with new functionality including the ability to view photo slideshows using on-screen controls and to zoom and rotate images with only one hand. TouchFLO also allows enhanced finger touch scrolling and browsing of web pages, documents, messages and contact lists.
“The HTC Touch Dual expands the HTC Touch product family and integrates 3.5G connectivity and a sliding keyboard into a slim and stylish design. This combination provides customers with the most uncompromising and intuitive touch experience available on a phone,” said Kevin Chen, general manager, HTC Middle East and Africa and CIS.
The HTC Touch Dual with Windows Mobile software offers a rich and familiar experience that will enable users to stay connected and access the people, information and entertainment – most important to them - all from a single, personalised device.
Some of the key features of the HTC Touch Dual include a 2 mega pixel camera plus a front facing camera for video calling, 2.6-inch QVGA flat touch screen, internal memory of 256 MB flash and 128 MB RAM, removable memory, Bluetooth and a 1100 mAH battery which offers up to 360 minutes of talk time.
HTC has also announced an additional colour variant and a free, full-screen virtual keypad download for the original HTC Touch. The HTC Touch is now available in stylish Arctic Silver in addition to the black version launched in June. –TradeArabia News Service
