Pocketnow Throwback: HTC Touch (Video)
We’re too busy nowadays rocking our quad-core smartphones with their 720p displays but we continue to look back in time and check out those phones which represented important milestones in the history of a company, platform or the user experience in general. The HTC Touch was launched in June 2007 — it will be five years old soon — and it represents the foundation for everything HTC Sense-enabled we came to know and love nowadays.
Thanks to HTC TouchFlo (aka the Cube), the HTC Touch tried to make Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional more user friendly. In terms of specs it featured a 200MHz TI OMAP 850 processor, 64MB or RAM, 128 MB of ROM (but there were version with 128MB of RAM and 256MB of ROM) in addition to the 1GB storage included with the phone inside the box. Yes, it supported microSD cards, unlike Windows Phone 7 devices nowadays. The screen was horrible at 2.8-inches and QVGA resolution but we loved it back then. Check out our video throwback of the HTC Touch and feel free to feel a little nostalgic. We know we do!
