The "1-Minute" Review
HTC’s Touch franchisee is about to get a new addition, and this phone promises to scare the crap out of its siblings.
The HTC HD2 Touch is by all measures, cutting edge. The 1GHz MSM8250 Snapdragon processor could potentially power a small plane (okay, not quite that powerful, but close), the enormous 4.3 inch WVGA capacitive display is beautiful both artistically and functionally, rendering anything that comes in its way with crazy-crisp, super-tight resolution.
Add an FM radio, a 5MP camera, video recorder with an impressive 480 x 800 pixel resolution, Bluetooth 2.1, a talk time of 380 minutes (varies with personal usage patterns), standby time of 490 hours, 3.5mm jack input and you could pretty much screw everything else up and still have a great phone.
But there is a “but”. While HTC has earned a well-deserved reputation for building high-quality phones, they haven’t perfected everything. Namely, the keyboard. This slide-out keyboard is spacious, thoughtful and attractive, but I must be honest, the keys do not have the full-bodied, over-engineered sculpture of the BlackBerry line. This means that, while a pleasure to type on, the lack of perfectly contoured keys does lead to some miss-strokes.
That said, this promises to take the Touch line further than ever, and provide serious power, speed and access in a package that is faster, prettier and easier to use than any prior Touch model.
