HTC Touch HD has WVGA goodness for Windows Mobile 6.1

Touchhd1HTC looks to be advancing the "Touch" concept of Windows Mobile phones even further; this time with an 800×480 screen on a device that’s comparable in size to current iPhones. MoDaCo shares the specs on this Windows Mobile 6.1 device that’s due out "in time for Santa":

  • GPS, Bluetooth and HSDPA support. I’d assume WiFi as well.
  • Same 528 MHz Qualcomm CPU as the Touch Diamond
  • Large 512 MB of ROM / 256 MB of RAM
  • 5-megapixel camera
  • 3.5mm headphone jack at the top of the device
My goodness that screen looks sweet! Personally we’re at the point now where QVGA screens are just downright disappointing to me and devices with larger screens should have at least VGA resolution. The HTC Touch HD goes the extra mile with WVGA which is the max that WinMo 6.1 supports. My guess: a European launch first with other countries to follow in early 2009. Stay tuned.
