When this Windows Mobile smartphone debuted over the summer, some complained that it was a bit underpowered, as it used a 200 MHz processor and included 64 MB of RAM and 128 MB of ROM. HTC hasn’t changed the processor, but it is now offering this device with 128 MB of RAM and 256 MB of ROM.
European telecoms T-Mobile and O2 have begun to offer the new version, and it’s available in Asia directly from HTC as well.
This does not affect the CDMA version of the HTC Touch now being offered in the U.S. by Sprint, as this already includes 128 MB of RAM and 256 MB of ROM.
An Overview of the HTC Touch
The HTC Touch is a Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphone designed around a new fingertip-oriented control system. In addition, it offers a sleek consumer-oriented design.
The Touch doesn’t include a built-in keyboard, but it does have Bluetooth and a microSDHC slot.
There’s a version of this model for GSM carriers, and a separate one for those carriers that use the CDMA standard. The GSM version doesn’t have support for 3G, but it does include Wi-Fi. The CDMA version, on the other hand, has 3G but not Wi-Fi.
