HTC Touch announced

What used to be called the HTC Elf, now has been officially renamed to the HTC Touch. Why call it the HTC Touch, you ask? Because it’s multi-touch? Never. It just has a new interface loaded on top of Windows Mobile 6 which is called TouchFLO. The purpose of TouchFLO is that the software can tell if you’re using a finger or stylus on the screen. If you’re using your finger, a nifty “three-dimensional” interface of media, applications, and contacts will activate. Yeah, we’re serious. Hard specs are: tri-band GSM/EDGE, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, 2 megapixel camera, 2.8-inch screen, 128MB of ROM, 64MB of RAM in a pretty small package. It’s available in two color choices of Wasabi, and soft black and available in the UK starting now. I personally applaud HTC for their efforts here, but to make all that hoopla over launching this? Well, maybe they were classy about it and we were the ones who blew it out of proportion and expected it to be a Jesus phone competitor. Yeah, I think that’s what happened.

Thanks, to everyone that sent this in!
