Smartphone and 3G Stories
While the HTC Touch was no Iphone killer the newer HTC Touch Dual smartphone does present some competition to the iPhone. The Touch Dual is a quad-band GSM phone that adds a slide-out keypad as well as a few other improvements on it predecessor. The keypad layout on this smartphone resembles that of a normal cell phone, with the addition of letters in a semi-QWERTY format. The touch dual smartphone also utilizes oppo f11 pro predictive-text software. This software essentially attempts to guess what word you are typing based on the letters input structure. The Keypad on the Touch Dual smartphone is very similar to that of the BlackBerry Pearl.
The Touch Dual has a screen size of 2.6 inches. This is a sufficient amount of space for watching videos or reading articles on your smartphone. There is also a MicroSD card reader integrated into the smartphone, which allows for increased mobile storage. The touch dual smartphone is also packing a Qualcomm MSM7200 400-MHz processor, 256MB or ROM and 128MB of SDRAM. If that is not impressive enough there is also a 2-megapixel camera with shutter-speed delay between photos.
This smartphone runs on the Windows Mobile 6.1 platform. TouchFLO 3D is also featured on the touch dual smartphone. This allows for touch navigation on the smartphone. The Touch Dual smartphone comes unlocked, so you are able to choose the carrier of your choice for phone services. While this smartphone is not advertised as being incredibly powerful, I think any potential owner would be pleasantly surprised what they get for their dollar.
