French site Geek Inc. (translated site here) managed to get its hands on an HTC Touch HD and has blessed us with a bevy of pictures. And the overall impression is quite good.
By now you know the deets. Quad-band EDGE and HSPA (900/2100 only so far - boo). WinMo 6.1 Pro with TouchFlo 3D. A 3.8-inch, 480x800 WVGA touchscreen. Five-megapixel camera with autofocus, and front-facing VGA camera. 512 ROM/288 RAM. MicroSD card. Assisted GPS. WiFi. 1350 mAh battery. 528 MHz Qualcomm processor. Exactly the same dimensions as the iPhone.
Their conclusion is the same we often have and mirrors a conclusion Dieter briefly spoke about in the latest Treocast over on our sister site.
The greatest fault of this HTC Touch HD is … Windows Mobile 6.1 … I exaggerate and that is not so bad as that, but it's still anti ergonomic!
But I'll reiterate another point frequently mentioned: Higher resolution can make just about anything better (see also). So if you're dead-set against the iPhone and its mere 320x480 screen, this could be your answer. Stay tuned.
