News: HTC pledges allegiance to Windows Mobile

June 13, 2009

htc_logo

Despite being the world’s first mobile phone maker to launch an Android-based handset, HTC still favours Microsoft’s Windows Mobile.

Frédéric Tassy, Grand Fromage of HTC France and Benelux, was recently asked whether he thought 2009 will be Android’s year. And although he thinks that, yes, this will be the year Android really takes off, the executive nonetheless stressed HTC’s close ties with Windows Mobile.

“We will always have more flagship products on Windows Mobile,” Tassy told French-language website Mobinaute. “Our best selling smartphone in Europe is also the HTC Touch HD [which uses] Windows Mobile.”

He also claimed many other handset makers will announce Android handsets – but fail to deliver their offerings on time.

“I think there will be a lot of bluffing, with products that are likely to be delayed,” he alleged.

Tassy claimed it was “hard to say” how many Android smartphones HTC will have launched by the end of this year. However, pictures were recently leaked online of a device widely thought to be the firm’s third Android-based device. ®

First Impression

The HTC Touch Cruise looks quite small nimble compared to the previous HTC Touch Cruise. It did inherit the scroll wheel found the previous model, but that’s it.

Following the design of Touch 3G, the volume/up down button is just a long sleek line.

A 3.2MP camera sits behind and the back cover is made from a very rubbery type material with gold dust like effect, unlike HTC Diamond.

HTC Touch Cruise isn’t running on Windows Mobile 6.5. So, there isn’t any much difference compared to say HTC Touch 3G in terms of OS. The Settings Tab however now include an additional “Location”. So what is so special about HTC Touch Cruise?

Footprint by HTC

What is “Footprint”? Simply put, Foot Print is a software develop by HTC whereby additional info can be stored on every photo taken using the HTC Touch Cruise. Information like telephone, audio clip, address, notes, coordinates and categories can be store in each of the picture so you know exactly when and where and why you took those pictures.

The next time you open up your footprint, you can just click on the image and navigate to the place on the image. Easy and straight forward.

Map Search

Map search function is also new in HTC Touch Cruise. It is actually powered by Google Maps where you can search for nearby restaurant, petrol station and others. It is as accurate as what all other users in the world contributes.

HTC  Touch Cruise comes pre-loaded with Papago GPS software. It also comes bundled with Maps of Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Car Kit Mode

Another feature found specifically on Touch Cruise is the Car Kit Mode. Basically when you fix this PDA to the supplied Car Holder kit, it will automatically changes into Navigational Model catering for GPS. 

Comparing with HTC Touch 3G

So, the closest PDA (in terms of specification) would be HTC Touch 3G. They both about the same size, weight about the same and have almost the same functionality.

Lets compare!

  HTC Touch Cruise (T4242) HTC Touch 3G (T3232)
Memory ROM: 512 MB    RAM: 256MB ROM: 256MB   RAM: 192MB
Processor Qualcomm® MSM7225TM, 528 MHz Qualcomm® MSM7225TM, 528 MHz
Battery Battery Capacity: 1100 mAh Battery Capacity: 1100 mAh
Size & Weight 102 mm X 53.6 mm X 14.5 mm (96g with battery) 102mm X 53.5mm X 14.5 mm (103g with battery)
Camera 3.2 MP (Fix Focus) 3.2 MP (Fix Focus)
Additional Accessories Car Charger + Car Holder + additional stylus + 1GB memory card

– nil –

Additional Software Papago X3 and Footprint

– nil –

Besides the obvious memory storage and button layout difference, everything between the HTC Touch 3G and HTC Touch Cruise is the same. Both have GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi and both don’t come with 3G camera. With HTC Touch 3G now selling at RM1,899, will the difference in RM300 worth all the additional accessories and software?

Conclusion

Pros:

  • Long battery life
  • Light weight
  • Comes bundled with all the necessary car holder, charger and additional stylus

Cons:

  • Lack of 3G Video Camera
  • Lack of Auto-focus function
  • Sensitivity of GPS signal weak compared with HTC Touch Pro
