HTC Touch gets Memory Bump, New Colors

The biggest knock I have on the HTC Touch (Video first look here) is that it's pretty short on memory. I spent way too much time uninstalling apps and managing what was open - it was just too small. Fortunately, the Sprint Touch doesn't look to have that issue. Now HTC has announced that they're giving the GSM version a bump - 256 MB of ROM and 128 MB of RAM. They've also added two colors to the already available "Elegant Black" and "Wasabi Green" -- "Burgundy Red" and "Immaculate White." The Red version looks pretty awesome, me want.

There's also apparently another version of the Touch coming from CarPhoneWarehouse, designed by Ted Baker and called The Needle. It looks to have the same functionality, but with slightly redesigned buttons and a slightly slimmer shape. New color too - a purple/pink - and apparently comes preloaded with a cuckoo clock wallpaper. Yeah.

  • Why do these OEM's consistently manufacture mobile devices with such a puny amount of memory? Didn't they learn from the Verizon 700w debacle? That's what Palm should do in the interim - make an "elite" version of the Treo to buy some time while they get their act together. They should upgrade both the processor and the memory on the device so that whatever OS it's running it's as zippy as the iPhone. I'd bet a lot of Treo-heads would buy it.

    The Touch has the highest level of memory of any US WM device out there (71MB RAM usable, 150MB for storage). Sure, it's not a gig, but it's plenty right now for a WM device (although more is always better :) )
    Speed is a function of the OS, processor and ram...and of course, there is a tradeoff with battery life.
    The iPhone is zippy due to the the above factors.
    I agree they should make a premium version, but remember, this is a business; it evolves - the ultimate device today will be so-so tomorrow. And the price today will be 1/2 the next year. So as much I think they underpower devices, I also understand the constraints of the smartphone market.
  • Isn't the real issue with the current GSM Touch when compared to the CDMA version the slow TI processor? Does this mean the GSM Touch will finally be getting the Qualcomm MSM7200 chip set with built-in gpsONE?
  • I was thinking that the beauty of the Touch is in its simplify. Fewer things to go wrong with less buttons moving parts. All I want is for the things I have to work.(period)
    The touch has thus far accomplished that. WinMob will ruin your view of Palm OS so I can never go back there. And the past devices I’ve had have always reset to default when I most needed them to work. So just give me speed, good screen, stability with a good battery and I’m happy.
    Sprint Touch = SERO, Size, Speed, Stable.
