HTC Touch HD debuts in Hong Kong
Shifting the boundaries of design and innovation
The HTC Touch HD™ combines high performance capabilities with a stylish, sleek design that has made HTC a global leader in mobile phone design and innovation. Its large 3.8 inch WVGA touchscreen offers users stunning clarity and vibrant colours, providing an unrivalled experience when watching movies, browsing the Internet or even scanning through photos taken with the 5 megapixel auto focus camera.
“Today, Widescreen TV, Internet and video have become the standard so there is no reason to compromise when you leave the house, the Touch HD™ delivers that uncompromising multimedia and Internet experience,” said Peter Chou, president and CEO HTC Corporation.
“We are living in a time where the concept of entertainment has radically changed. The Internet is so much more than just email and our customers expect to be able to access the Internet and high quality multimedia content no matter where they are in the world.”
Getting the most out of the Internet
The large high resolution, widescreen display combined with download speeds faster than standard 3G, enables the HTC Touch HD™ to render websites quickly and in full-page width. This provides a comparable Internet experience to that of home broadband in terms of both speed and page layout. This true mobile broadband experience allows users to navigate more easily, leveraging the mobile Internet in a variety of ways. For example, browsing to favourite websites, using Google Maps™* to find a restaurant for lunch or even searching for and streaming video from YouTube™, will be more intuitive for consumers familiar with desktop browsing. Moreover, the newly added Stock tab keeps you informed of the international stock quotes.
The HTC Touch HD™ has been conceived for both business and consumer users alike, who demand style and performance and do not think the two are mutually exclusive. The HTC Touch HD™ is the ideal handset for people who are embracing the mobile multimedia shift but who do not wish to forgo quality, simply by being on the move.
*Using Google Maps™ might involve extra mobile data costs on Internet usage
