HTC announces the Touch2 (aka Mega)

HTC this morning announced the Touch2, which we've come to know previously as the Mega. As expected, the specs won't knock your socks off:

  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional.
  • Qualcomm MSM7225 @ 528MHz.
  • 512 ROM/256 RAM.
  • Dimensions: 104x55x12.9mm.
  • Weight: 110 grams with battery.
  • Display: 2.8-inch QGVA (240x320) screen.
  • Quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900), dual-band HSPA (900/2100).
  • GPS.
  • Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR.
  • WiFi b/g.
  • 3.5mm headphone jack and ExtUSB.
  • 3.2MP camera (fixed-focus).
  • 1100 mAh battery.
  • MicroSD card.

So, this isn't a top-shelf device, but it does move the low end of HTC's smartphone lineup into the same ballpark as the likes of the Touch HD, Touch Pro 2 and Touch Diamond 2, with the full-front screen (even if this one is smaller and of a lower resolution) and zoom bar. The Touch2 will be available as part of the Oct. 6 Super Duper Windows Mobile 6.5 launch day in European and Asian markets. Note that the Touch2 will work on U.S. GSM networks but lacks the U.S. 3G frequencies.
