General Usage of the HTC Touch
The look and feel of this phone is hard to quantify, and no matter how many pictures you look at of this phone the true look (as every kid knows when they go to a toy store) is to actually feel what you are looking at, in this case "Touch" is the operative word; once you touch it there is no going back. The rounded curves and sleek style immediately impress. The ultra thin structure packs an enormous punch, and the almost soft rubberized texture just seems to make it fit snugly in your hand. The screen itself has a special protective covering which supposedly recognizes both finger touches and stylus touches. The protective layer means you have to be quite forceful in your approach when touching the screen; but relax, because it was designed like that.
The OS is Windows Mobile 6 Professional and so the phone does what almost any other phone with this software can do, and with an emphasis for people on the move. The suites included are Windows Live, Windows Explorer and the option to use IM through Windows Live Messenger. The phone uses Push e-mail technology, and of course has online access through Tri-band features as mentioned before; these include GMS, GPRS, and EDGE. You can access the net via Wi-Fi, or use Bluetooth 2.0 technology for those handy portable Bluetooth headsets or swapping pictures with your friends.
An additional feature is the Internet sharing function which has been around since the Nokia 6210i, this allowing you the ability to use the phone as a modem for your PC or laptop on the go. Mobile Office and the usual features associated with Windows Mobile are all present. What is not usual is the inclusion of a unique homepage setup, this providing immediate access to HTC's very own TouchFlow software that completely blows any other similar phone out the water (except maybe the iPhone, but I've not had the pleasure yet).
With a flick of your thumb from the bottom of the screen to the top, and suddenly you are rotating what appears to be a cube. But if you want to get technical it is actually a pyramid as it only has four sides to it. On each of these sides is the Photo speed dial, Application launcher, Multimedia launcher and lastly the Mobiles interface page (or Home page) seen in all the pictures earlier. You can see the other three graphic menus below.
