HTC Corporation, a global leader in mobile phone innovation and design, today unveiled its latest handset, the HTC Touch HDTM, an entertainment focused mobile handset that will transform how people experience multimedia on the move. Integrating a large 3.8 inch wide-screen VGA display (WVGA), a standard 3.5mm audio jack and a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, the HTC Touch HDTM is the perfect device for multimedia fans. HTC is also extremely pleased to announce that Hong Kong’s leading mobile operator, CSL Limited has been appointed the exclusive Hong Kong distributor and operator partner of the HTC Touch HD

Shifting the boundaries of design and innovation

The HTC Touch HDTM combines high performance capabilities with a stylish, sleek design that has made HTC a global leader in mobile phone design and innovation. Its large 3.8 inch WVGA touchscreen offers users stunning clarity and vibrant colours, providing an unrivalled experience when watching movies, browsing the Internet or even scanning through photos taken with the 5 megapixel auto focus camera.

The stylish new device also features HTC’s beautiful TouchFLO 3D user interface to provide quick and intuitive access to the people, messages and content that are most important. A standard 3.5mm headphone jack has also been designed-in, allowing consumers to use their preferred headphones with the device for the best possible sound quality.

“Today, Widescreen TV, Internet and video have become the standard so there is no reason to compromise when you leave the house, the Touch HDTM delivers that uncompromising multimedia and Internet experience,” said Peter Chou, president and CEO HTC Corporation.
“We are living in a time where the concept of entertainment has radically changed. The Internet is so much more than just email and our customers expect to be able to access the Internet and high quality multimedia content no matter where they are in the world.”

Getting the most out of the Internet

The large high resolution, widescreen display combined with download speeds faster than standard 3G, enables the HTC Touch HDTM to render websites quickly and in full-page width. This provides a comparable Internet experience to that of home broadband in terms of both speed and page layout. This true mobile broadband experience allows users to navigate more easily, leveraging the mobile Internet in a variety of ways. For example, browsing to favourite websites, using Google Maps* to find a restaurant for lunch or even searching for and streaming video from YouTube, will be more intuitive for consumers familiar with desktop browsing. Moreover, the newly added Stock tab keeps you informed of the international stock quotes.

No compromise

The HTC Touch HDTM has been conceived for both business and consumer users alike, who demand style and performance and do not think the two are mutually exclusive. The HTC Touch HDTM is the ideal handset for people who are embracing the mobile multimedia shift but who do not wish to forgo quality, simply by being on the move.
