HTC: No Touch HD in US

Americans will not have access to the Touch HD phone, maker HTC has announced through its Twitter feed. The company says that although it "looked into it," it has decided that by the time the HD could be converted and imported into the US, the device would be "old news." It is promising "other cool stuff" later down the line, but has not specified what this may mean.

The phone can theoretically support American GSM and EDGE networks, but would likely require conversion of its 3G support to work on networks like AT&T's. The HD's major feature, however, is said to be a 3.8-inch touchscreen display, capable of resolutions up to 800x480; this is substantially higher than most phones in North America, including the iPhone, which is partly promoted for its 3.5-inch 480x320 screen.
