The iPhone VS the HTC Touch

The HTC touch is the newest smart phone out there that's touted to be able to compete with iPhone, but in terms of raw specs, how exactly does it compare with the iPhone ?

Well, first, the 'Touch' uses a new navigating interface called the TouchFLO where you can sweep your fingers on the screen to operate the phone. Moving your fingers along the screen lets you navigate. The screen size at 2.8 inches, is smaller than the iPhone and the screen resolution is also lower at 240x320.

The HTC Touch has a 128MB ROM and 68MB RAM and is providing a 1GB MicroSD free (at least in the U.K.), the iPhone on the other hand has a 4 or 8 GB storage capacity built in.

I think the iphone's superb. But the main problems are: it doen't have video recording, it doesn't support IM i.e chat (Yahoo, Google etc.) and it doesn't support A2DP (bluetooth Stereo). But the other features are superb like the "slide to unlock" etc.

This type of blogs is very recreational, call attention because of them you always learn something useful and not as in other blogs that are a waste of time and learn nothing.Congratulations for this blog and hopefully they are more like this, I regret to say that I've only found the Generic Viagra and this with the material of common interest!
