Here's a quick note to spice up your weekend: The first official Windows Mobile 6.1 device is going to be available in the US this weekend. Specifically it's the Quad-band Touch Dual, which HTC is selling fully unlocked at Best Buy locations for $549.99. You should also be able to pick it up at their website.
The Touch Dual is a very nice device, with it's sliding 20-key suretype-y keyboard and 3G wireless and TouchFLO 2. It's not too surprising that the first official Windows Mobile 6.1 device we're seeing is something unlocked and un-related to carriers. 6.1 isn't that different from 6, is the approval process really all that difficult, guys?
Thanks to Ray for the tip! [via
Is this the first unlocked phone that HTC has sold directly in the U.S.? If so, very, very interesting...
By the way, it appears the integrated gpsONE chip in the MSM7200 chip set will initially be disabled on the Neon. Is that correct?
