[28 September] The all new HTC Touch II (HT1100, NTT DoCoMo) rumoured to be launched in late October / early November. So far what we know is that it will be a full featured 3G video phone with a sliding keypad. Will update if we hear more.

[Updated: 1 October] Specs on the HTC Touch Slide finally out on MobilitySite

  • OS : Windows Mobile 6 Pro
  • Memory : 256MB RAM and 238MB ROM
  • Size : 107mm (L) x 55mm (W) x 15.8mm (T) 120grams
  • Display : 2.6″ TFT-LCD Touch-Sensitive Screen

With a faster processor and 3G this time around. Size-wise, compatible with the iPhone and HTC TyTN II so not sure how well the new HTC Touch Slide is gonna fare. Still think that if the screen could be expanded to 2.8″, it would be more attractive. Another major bumming factor is that there is NO WiFi on this phone. (HTC, what are you thinking?)
