HTC Touch CDMA Review

This review is for the Sprint's Touch. If you are interested in the Verizon Wireless XV6900, also check this hands-on.

The HTC touch has made its way across the pond and landed on Sprint. This CDMA variant of the GSM P3450, the Sprint Touch has swapped out Wi-Fi for 3G cellular data, and doubled the memory to 256MB ROM and 128MB RAM. HTC’s unique TouchFLO interface was also revamped, making for a more fluid experience. The Sprint Touch (aka 6900) utilizes Windows Mobile 6 Professional for its operating system and currently utilizes EV-DO rev 0 data, though it will be upgradable to EV-DO rev A at a later date. It sports a 2.0 megapixel camera and support for microSDHC cards. SprintTV is available, a first for a Windows Mobile device, as well as the Sprint Music Store for over the air music downloads. Currently the Touch cannot take advantage of its internal GPS, but this feature will be available after the rev A upgrade. As the name implies, the device is run primarily by the touchscreen, there is no keypad and only a handful of physical buttons.

Included in the packaging you will find a generous amount of accessories:

  • HTC Touch handset
  • AC charger
  • USB data cable
  • 512MB microSD card
  • Stereo headphones with proprietary connector
  • Dual miniUSB adapter
  • miniUSB to 2.5mm headset adapter
  • Extra stylus
  • Leather pouch with magnetic clasp
  • Software CD (includes ActiveSync 4.5 and Outlook 2007 trial)
