I just read about the HTC Touch and, whilst I haven’t seen one in the flesh, my existing phone is out of contract in a month or so and do have to say I’m seriously tempted.
As far as I can see, for UK users, the HTC Touch has at least two of advantages over an iPhone:
- It’s available here, now.
- It’s about 40% less expensive than the iPhone is predicted to be, without a contract (and just over Â£50 with a Â£30 monthly contract on Vodafone).
Of course, it also runs Windows Mobile and lacks the Apple wow factor but I can live without an iPhone. For those who just don’t fancy the idea of running Windows on their phone – there is the Symbian-based Nokia N95, which includes a 5MP camera on it’s spec-sheet.
