First pictures: HTC Touch HD
Images get us guessing
Pictures and specifications have been leaked online of the latest phone rumoured to be in development at HTC’s labs.
HTC's Touch HD handset?

Although the phone’s thought to be called the HTC Touch HD, a shot of the talker’s “Device Information” screen shows that it actually provides a 480 x 800 resolution – hardly full HD. It's also capable of displaying 65,000-odd colours.
The same picture also confirms that the phone has a Qualcomm 7201A CPU running at 528MHz, and Bluetooth 2.0 for short-range data transfers.
Windows Mobile and Qualcomm make an appearance
A shot showing the Windows “Start” menu confirms that the handset runs on Windows Mobile 6.1, which means the phone’s almost certainly a touchscreen/stylus hybrid like Samsung’s new Omnia and Palm's Treo Pro. Pictures also show a 3G icon.
The source of the pictures has claimed to know that the phone also sports a five-megapixel camera, in addition to a Micro SD card slot and 3.5mm headphone jack.
A release date or price hasn’t been unearthed for the HTC Touch HD yet.
...same old HTC mundanity, same old shoe string budget development short cutting of the software for the core functions, same old half baked Qualcom chipset drivers (despite their claims).
This is just HTC all over. They churn out that many new models they don't work and work and work and continually developing a specific core range. As such they hardly ever seem to learn fully from their mistakes. A "Just throw it all in the bin and start again" approach all the time.
And before anyone says, I know we had a TyTn and TyTn II but come on, other than switching the buttons around on the front and throwing in a GPS chip, exactly WHERE were *HTC's* improvements?
The screen is between 3.8 and 4 inches big, which is massive, especially considering its the same size ad the iPhone, which has a much smaller 3.5 inch screen.
