I’ve just got my hands on a pre-production Touch HD, which is HTC’s latest GPS-enabled smartphone. It packs HTC’s custom TouchFLO user interface, support for HSDPA networks, a 5 megapixel camera, a 3.5mm audio jack, and best of all, a massive 3.8inch wide super-bright WVGA screen (800×480).
Initial impressions of the device are very good, the LCD display on this is (by far) the best I’ve ever seen on any mobile device. You’ll have to see it to believe it, the picture to the right really doesn’t do it justice. Not only is it very hi-res, but its also very bright and the colours look extremely vibrant. The TouchFlo interface is faster and more responsive than previous versions.
Our CoPilot development team here are hard at work to bring an optimised version for the hi-res WVGA screen (800×480) and already its looking very good. We’ll post more news nearer the time to launch regarding CoPilot availability for this device.
