Orange gets HTC Touch HD

One of the UK's wireless service providers, Orange, announced on Monday it will carry the upcoming HTC Touch HD exclusively in the country until 2009. The news follows on the footsteps of Germany's O2, which announced earlier it would offer the Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional-based smartphone starting in early November, the same time period announced by Orange. Apart from the Orange handset's support of the carrier's mobile TV service, the specs are similar to the reference Touch HD model, including the capability of accessing the Internet over the carrier's high-speed HSDPA data network.

The HTC Touch HD will feature an 800x480 3.8-inch screen and a 5-megapixel camera, as well as a 528MHz processor and 256MB of RAM. Onboard memory is fixed at 512MB. The user interface is via HTC's TouchFLO 3D program. A standard 3.5mm headphone jack is present on the handset to allow users the flexibility to connect a wide variety of headphones to the handset.

The HTC Touch HD is will be offered for nearly 80 (about $130) on an 18-month contract that costs 40 (nearly $65) per month and includes up to 250MB of data. Orange will offer the Touch HD in its France and Romania markets over the next few months as well. [via The Unwired]

    MicroSD expansion

    "Onboard memory is fixed at 512 MB"

    Memory is expandable with MicroSD cards (up to 16 GB for less than 50) and the device will ship with an 8GB card in the box.

    too bad about the OS...

    Looks like a nice piece of kit. Too bad it's hobbled by a weak OS. And it would have made such a nice Android OS phone...
