HTC Touch, iPhone rival?

June 10, 2007

HTC announced on June 5th the HTC Touch (579 USD for a SIM free phone). HTC Touch features the TouchFlo technology, which allows you to operate the smart phone just by swiping your finger on the device’s 2.8-inch, 65,536-color touch screen. The direction of movement your finger is taking over the touch screen is mapped into actions the phone executes.

HTC Touch is based on Windows Mobile 6 Professional Edition; support any feature you would like from a smart phone but lack support for 3G.

Does this make a proper rival against the upcoming Apple iPhone? It is currently hard to tell. In my opinion both mobile phones lack some features, which I deem mandatory form a smart phone.
