Hands-on with the HTC Touch2

Hands-on with the HTC Touch2
The HTC Touch2 is one of the first handsets of the manufacturer rolling out with Windows Mobile 6.5 pre-installed. Unlike the HTC HD2, this particular cell phone does not sport powerful components and it can be described as a lightweight, affordable version of HTC Touch Diamond2. Its small overall size and weight were what we noticed first. Despite them, the HTC Touch2 does not feel cheap and the quality of workmanship is exemplary. Its display looks nice as well, even if its native resolution is low - just QVGA. 

Perhaps, the motley and cool interface has to do with that. The HTC Touch2 runs TouchFLO version 2.0. The manufacturer has slightly clipped off certain effects, but the interface delivers identical functionality to the previous edition and the major difference is, it does not come in just black, grey and white. The colors of the icons are quite similar to those of the Sense interface running on the HTC Hero. Our first impression of the operational speed is that the cell phone is really snappy, but let's wait and see how it performs under heavier software loads.
