The package and bundle
Below is a list of some of the physical specifications and key features of the HTC Touch.
HTC's Touch phone comes in a nice, professional looking box with a simple logo display; ample specs are also listed on the sides of the box. Once you open it up you will see the phone nestled between two speaker buds all dressed in protective foam. The immediate impression is one of quality and craftsmanship. Opening things further and spreading everything around, you should find the following:
• The HTC Touch Phone
• MicroSD Card (1GB)
• AC Adapter
• USB Sync Cable
• USB Stereo Headset
• Read Me First Brochure
• User Manual (196 page)
• Neoprene Type Protective Pouch
• Getting Started CD
• Application CD (Make sure your have Adobe Flash 8 or higher installed on your PC in order for the CD auto installation procedure to work correctly).
In addition there is the Warranty card and a handy list of regional help centres for any troubles you might come across.
The dimensions are roughly 10cm in length, 6cm across and 1.5cm thick; what this translates to is a rather portable package when compared to other phones with similar specs. If you include the battery, the HTC Touch weight sits at around 112 grams.
Internal memory storage size is a modest 128 MB of ROM, with 64 MB DDR SDRAM. The 1GB MicroSD storage card is an absolute must, and I can't help but feel the ROM and SDRAM should be more. You can see in the picture below the entrance slot for the Subscriber Identity Module (better known as the SIM card) and also the MicroSD card. You have to remove the chrome skirting which is clipped into place to cover them up. I like this feature because you don't have to take the battery out to access either the SIM or the MicroSD card.
