HTC Touch replacement to wear Viva name, not Opal

updated 04:35 pm EDT, Fri September 12, 2008

HTC Opal renamed to Viva

The replacement for the HTC Touch, earlier reported to be named the HTC Touch Opal, will officially be called HTC Touch Viva instead, a Friday report suggests. The name is not set in stone, but at the same time, the report confirms specs gleaned earlier. What is new is an initial Asian release, though no guesses are made as to an exact date. Europe should get the new HTC Touch handset on September 30, with prices set at an equivalent of about $425.

Apart from this new information, the quad-band Opal/Viva will carry over the TI OMAP 200MHz processor and 2.8-inch, 240x320 pixel touchscreen of the original Touch. It will likewise include an 802.11b/g Wi-Fi module, microSD card slot, 2.0-megapixel camera and Bluetooth 2.0 short-range wireless device connectivity, while a new Opera browser and RSS feed reader will keep users connected with web news.
