The gadget loving internet first heard of the HTC Touch HD through a handful of spy shots that hit the internet last week, so it seems almost appropriate that its first official debut was pushed into the spotlight a bit earlier than HTC apparently intended. One way or another, some crafty gent found himself at a full-blown HTC Touch HD product page complete with visuals and specs galore before the press release has made its way down the wire.
This one looks to be an outright beast: 3.8″ 480×800 (WVGA) touchscreen, 5 megapixel autofocus camera on the back with a VGA front facing secondary cam, HSDPA/WCMDA, Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, 802.11g WiFi, GPS, and the always nice to see 3.5mm. At just 12mm thick, it packs a pretty solid punch without making it look like you’re sporting a brick in your pant pocket. While the TouchFLO 3D interface will help with the sting of Windows Mobile 6.1 just a bit, we still wished it shared a platform with that other HTC handset.
The product page doesn’t mention pricing or availability, so those are still a mystery until the press release makes its way down the tubes. With a product page already online, we probably won’t have to wait too much longer for that.
