HTC Touch Dual P5500 Smartphone

Today HTC announced the Touch Dual, a device that adds a keypad to the popular HTC Touch design. Like the Touch before it, the Touch Dual makes use of HTC's TouchFLO finger based user interface extensions to allow users to navigate through the phone quickly and accurately with only a fingertip. Thanks to the addition of a slide-out keypad, the Touch Dual has a non-touchscreen based input method for entering text, which addresses one of the major complaints with the original Touch. The Touch Dual will ship with one of two different keypad designs. Some will use a conventional 16 key layout, but others will ship with a new 20 key design. The 20 key keypad is laid out in a QWERTY fashion that looks very much like the SureType keypad used on RIM's BlackBerry Pearl devices, with 5 columns of keys and each key representing two letters of the alphabet.In addition to the keypad, the Touch Dual also gains 2100MHz UMTS/HSDPA connectivity, double the RAM and built-in storage, and improved GSM battery talk times.

I have never owned a smart phone before this one, but it is worth it. I love the ease and capabilities of this phone. My only complaint is that the battery seems to drain anytime I do anything on it (listen to the mp3 player etc). But all in all it's a good investment. Read full review »
