The innovative HTC Touch is getting a bit long in the tooth and it looks like HTC has the successor already lined up. The documents ’bout the Opal look legit enough, and if we are to believe them, the Opal appears a lot like the previous generation with same 200MHz processor, WiFi, MicroSD, Bluetooth 2.0, and a 2.8-inch 240 x 320 touchscreen. So it seems that the only upgrade is a refreshed TouchFLO 3D user interface that I would dare say some enterprising Touch owner could get to work on their surprisingly similar handset. Stay tuned for pricing and availability.
