This one sort of passed us by, however Paul and I are now putting the HTC Touch 3G through it's paces thanks to the MoDaCo WinMo Week podcast sponsor eXpansys.[/teaser]
The Touch 3G is a mid range Windows Mobile Professional 6.1 device coming in at the relatively decent price of £315 (£305 with a MoDaCo voucher). The key specs are:
- 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7225 CPU
- 256/128MB ROM/RAM
- 2.8" qVGA touchscreen
- Touchflo 2D
- 7.2MBps Dual band HSDPA and Quad band GSM
- 3.2Mpix camera
- 102 mm x 53.6 mm x 14.5 mm, 96g
The downside's so far are really only the lack of a full VGA screen and limited storage memory available on the device (around 70MB). After using the Touch HD and Pro I had gotten used to installing all my apps to the device allowing me to mix and match storage cards as necessary. Considering the close proximity to the Touch Diamond price point, and the Diamonds built in 4GB of storage (albeit without the microSDHC slot the Touch 3G sports) these elements could be deal breakers. However, if you prefer a nippier device or the ability to switch storage cards this may be for you.
