We've had two chances to get our hands on the Sprint Touch before - once at Digital Life and again at the CTIA Wireless Convention. Both of those were awfully short, so we're happy to have the Sprint Touch finally in house and in hand.

Our initial impression: pretty neat. Sprint seems to be making this an important device for their lineup this Christmas - they've bunded a heckuva lot of their own apps and services in there. I'm not sure I like that -- I'm especially dubious about their java-based Sprint Music app -- but the device itself is a big improvement over the original HTC Touch. More memory, a faster processor, and improved TouchFlo features make the Sprint Touch a winner - it's almost enough to make you forget they dropped WiFi on the device.
