HTC have announced the release date for their Touch HD smartphone. The Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro device, which has a 3.8-inch WVGA 800 x 480 touchscreen with haptic feedback, a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and 3G HSDPA, will be available in Europe come November 6th.
Other specs include GPS, a front-facing VGA camera for video messaging, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP support and a microSDHC card slot. In a pleasant change for HTC, the Touch HD also includes a 3.5mm headphone socket.
Earlier this month, HTC disappointed US would-be Touch HD owners by revealing that the handset would not get an official release outside of Europe and Asia. The smartphone lacks US-spec 3G band support, without which it would be limited to EDGE speeds at most (unless in a convenient WiFi hotspot), and HTC predicted that by the time they had engineered a new version the handset would be outdated.
The MRSP for the HTC Touch HD is €649 ($881).
