So, we’ve finally gotten the launch go-ahead from HTC on their new HTC Touch Cruise. Following on O2’s recent announcement that they’ll be bringing the HTC Touch Cruise (HTC Polaris P3650) to the UK as the O2 Xda Orbit 2, HTC has gone global with their shiny, new touchscreen device.
The Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional-powered HTC Touch Cruise will be sporting a speedy 400Mhz Qualcomm CPU, 128 MB / 256 MB of RAM and ROM, integrated GPS, quad-band GSM, HSDPA, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, 3 megapixel camera (with forward-facing VGA video-call camera), and the must-have TouchFLO interface. Oh, and this bad boy’s going to be rocking UMTS 850/1900Mhz for US 3G goodness or UMTS 2100Mhz for some 3G fun in Europe.
And, for you GPS-loving WinMo fans out there, the HTC Touch Cruise comes pre-installed with TomTom GPS Nav software to help you find your way. Expect your local European retailer to carry the HTC Touch Cruise this month. Or, if the words “local” and “European” don’t apply to your neighborhood, head on over to HTC’s store and order one manufacturer-direct.
