HTC Touch Cruise 2009

HTC today added one last phone to its current touchscreen line in the form of a reworked Touch Cruise. The new model is much slimmer and more compact than the old model while keeping the signature scroll wheel that lets users flip through documents more quickly than with the 2.8-inch touchscreen or the directional pad. It also brings the modern TouchFLO interface and a new postcard feature that lets users send text, sound clips, and geotagged photos that provide the location where the shot was taken.

The internal hardware is relatively close to the original and includes a slightly upgraded 3.2-megapixel camera, 3G over HSPA, GPS and Wi-Fi; storage is handled over microSDHC cards. HTC anticipates shipping the Windows Mobile phone to "all major markets" in spring, though its 3G is limited to 900MHz and 2,100MHz bands in current form and so limits any American releases of the unmodified phone to 2G EDGE data. HTC has, however, regularly converted its more recent phones to support North American 3G bands.
