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.

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.
