HTC Touch at Sprint

Sprint this morning officially unveiled its version of the HTC Touch, providing the third-largest carrier in the US with its own touchscreen-focused device. Like the version that shipped to Telus in Canada last week, the Sprint edition connects to CDMA networks and connects to the Internet at 3G speeds through EVDO. In American form, however, the gesture-based TouchFLO interface now provides access to specialized Sprint audio and video content as well as the normal communication and media tools found in Windows Mobile 6: listeners can buy songs from Sprint's online store or stream radio and Internet TV stations, including the recently launched SEE entertainment and sports channel which runs only on Sprint's service.

The Touch continues to rely on a 2-megapixel camera and microSD storage that holds cards up to 4GB in size. Sprint has slated the debut of the Touch for November 4th, when it ships for $250 after factoring in a two-year plan and a $100 rebate. Unsubsidized pricing was not made public as part of the release.
