HTC Touch HD gets video previewed, available for pre-order at 619 euro
The uber-phone of them all, the HTC Touch HD has been caught in action by a French gadget website and it seems like the reviewer is really impressed even in this pre-release stage. The other HD news today is that the PocketPC is up for pre-order over at Amazon.de, which means we finally have a pricing.
As it seems a good pile of cash, or exactly 619 euro (890 US dollars), can make you one of the first owners of the high-resolution, high-spec'd, high-everything HTC Touch HD. Interestingly enough, that price tag goes good 20 euro below the pre-order price of Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1.
So, now that the price is clear, we are more than eager to see the real-life performance of the Touch HD. Unfortunately, currently our only clue on the matter seems to be a French website, which is apparently down at the moment.
Before it went down however, we managed to grab the reviewer's first impressions and a photo or two. To sum it up, the high-res display looks marvelous (especially the TouchFLO 3D), the UI response is snappy, camera makes nice pictures, the accelerometer is sensitive and can be fine tuned, and finally, the Touch HD is no bigger than the iPhone 3G.
Although the website is down, the guys there managed to upload a video preview (in French). You can check it out here, or hit this high-quality link over at YouTube.
