After about 3 years of service it was finally time to say goodbye to my beloved Motorola V3i. After a hundred reviews, I decided to buy the HTC Touch. The Touch is the closest competitor for the iPhone which is not yet available in India.
The Touch uses a difference kind of touch screen to achieve finger-friendliness, especially gesture-awareness by using Touch Flow. It runs Windows Mobile 6 Professional on a 201MHz processor with the standard 64 megs of RAM and 128 megs of flash ROM. The box comes with 1GB ram card which should suffice for now. Other features include WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 and a 2 megapixel camera.
I tried the Wifi as soon as I reached home and was able to connect effortlessly with my wifi router.
The one con that I hear people say is the lack of a keypad to help with text messaging. I found that the included Transcriber (handwriting recognition) feature was more than enough to write sms’s with a stylus. For those who dont like using a stylus, I guess they should buy the SPB Full Screen Keyboard.
