HTC Touch HD Officially Announced

HTC have put up the product page for the Touch HD smartphone, which we first caught sight of last week.  Although no press release has been issued at time of writing, what we have confirmed makes for a highly tempting handset.  A 3.8-inch WVGA 800 x 480 touchscreen, HSDPA (using the Europe/Asia 900/2100MHz bands), WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS and A-GPS round out the device, together with HTC's TouchFLO 3D GUI.

There's also a 5-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and front VGA camera for video calls.   A microSD slot is present for augmenting the 512MB ROM and 288MB RAM, and there's a 3.5mm headphone jack.  The Touch HD measures 115 mm x 62.8 mm x 12 mm ((4.35 in x 2.5 in x 0.47 in) and weighs 146.4 grams (5.164 ounces) with the battery in place.

HTC have picked a 1350 mAh battery, promising 390 minutes of 3G talktime or 450 hours of 3G standby; alternatively, 120 minutes of video calling.  No word on price or availability as yet.
