HTC Touch first mobile to feature TouchFLO

HTC Corp. today announced the global launch of the HTC Touch, a deceptively small and stylish mobile phone that ushers in an innovative new concept in intuitive touch screen navigation. The groundbreaking HTC Touch offers a new and unique way of controlling touch screen-based devices by recognizing and responding to the sweep of a finger across the screen. It is even intelligent enough to distinguish between finger and stylus input and then responds accordingly. The HTC Touch is the first device to feature TouchFLO, the new underlying touch screen technology developed by HTC. Consumers simply sweep their finger up the display to launch an animated, three-dimensional interface comprising three screens.

Leveraging the broad functionality of Windows Mobile 6 Professional, the HTC Touch includes Outlook Mobile, Office Mobile, Windows Live and the capabilities to run thousands of third-party applications. Users can surf the web with Internet Explorer, send and receive emails, chat on Messenger and send files to their own web space through Windows Live. The HTC Touch measures 99.9mm x 58mm x 13.9mm weigh 112g with battery and come loaded with 1GB microSD card. The HTC Touch is available in elegant soft black or alluring wasabi green in the United Kingdom and will be released later this month in Asia and throughout Europe.
