HTC Touch Cruise, also known as P3650 (HTC Polaris 100 platform) has a standard 2.8" TFT touchscreen QVGA display and life is made easier with the HTC TouchFLO technology and the HTC Home plugin. The device runs on Windows Mobile 6 Professional and masters a 400MHz Qualcomm processor, while the integrated 256MB ROM and 128MB RAM is more than welcome for such a device. If you are short on user available memory, you can make use of the integrated microSD card slot.
Besides HSDPA (3.6 Mbps), Touch Cruise also supports GSM/GPRS/EDGE quad-band connectivity. Wirelessly, it utilizes the onboard Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth v2.0, while the wired connectivity set is limited to ExtUSB full-speed USB 2.0, which stands for 11-pin miniUSB and audio jack in one. Furthermore, the built-in turn-by-turn GPS navigation with TomTom software offers you a full navigation experience.
The entertainment section of Touch Cruise is on par, including a 3 megapixel auto focus camera, FM radio and MP3/MPEG4 player. Enjoying video calls is assured with the secondary VGA CMOS camera.
Big displays and rich palette of functionality usually go with bulky handsets. However, Touch Cruise sports a body with 130 grams of weight and 15.5 mm thickness. The device will be available worldwide starting this month.
