Continuing HTC’s touch phone tradition, the Touch 3G and Touch Viva utilize TouchFLO, HTC’s finger touch optimised navigation experience enabling quick, one touch access to the people, messages and information people want.
Peter Chou, president and CEO at HTC Corporation, stated: “The HTC Touch 3G and Touch Viva embody our commitment to build a family of touch phones that are powerful and stylish but also offer something to everyone. Whether you’re a professional or a student you can now get an HTC touch phone with a beautiful touch user experience.”
The Touch 3G offers a touch phone experience with powerful internet capabilities including wireless download speeds up to 18 times faster than standard 3G. As part of this browsing experience users can zoom and pan websites with one hand. This true mobile broadband experience allows users to navigate more easily, leveraging the mobile Internet in a variety of ways.
With the Touch 3G, customers can search for and watch streaming video from YouTube, get directions and mapping using Google Maps for mobile and stay updated on the latest news with the integrated RSS reader.
The Touch Viva blends an affordable touch phone with the benefits of HTC’s TouchFLO, an easy to use phone and an optimized mobile Internet experience. In addition, with Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, users can easily synchronise their calendar, contacts, emails and more with their personal computer.
Both devices will be available in early October 2008 in a variety of markets.
