HTC has finally broken its silence over rumours it’s developing a smartphone called the Touch HD. It has also confirmed what the phone’s specs are and even roughly when it’ll land in the UK.

The Touch HD measures 115 x 63 x 12mm and is equipped with a 3.8in, 480 x 800 display. So although the phone has HD in the name, don’t be fooled into thinking you’ll be able to watch full HD-quality video on it.

No expense has been spared on the phone’s connectivity options, because the Touch HD’s able to serve up HSDPA 3G connections of up to 7.2Mb/s and connect over quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge links.

A decent five-megapixel camera’s hidden around the back of the talker and a second VGA-quality snapper features on the front for making video calls. Still snaps and videos are stored on Micro SD cards, and can be blasted out to your buddies over 802.11b/g Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

Swanky and sexy?

As with all its latest phones, HTC has opted to equip the Touch HD with Windows Mobile 6.1. TouchFlo 3D software, which also features on the Touch Diamond, lets you rummage through your music folder, for example, by flipping past album covers. Cough*iPhone*Cough.

You’ll get up to 310 minutes of talk time and around 390 hours of standby life with the phone, HTC claimed.

HTC’s Touch HD will be launched across Europe sometime between now and Christmas. A UK price hasn’t been given.
