Yesterday the product pages of the new HTC Touch HD Windows smartphone went online. Today HTC published the press-release with the release details of this new hot Windows phone.
The HTC Touch HD will be available across major European carriers still in Q4 2008 and be introduced in other global markets shortly following.

The highlight of the HTC Touch HD is the 3.8 inch screen with the high 800x480px resolution. The other features of the HSDPA phone are also not bad but, considering that my good "old" Asus 701 8G with 7 inch screen has the same resolution is depressing.HTC managed to keep the HTC Touch HD very compact with measurements of 115x62.8x12mm. The iPhone 3G has almost the same measurements with 115.5x62.1x12.3mm, but only gives you a 3.5 inch screen with 480x320px resolution.
The HTC Touch HD will be another winner for HTC this fall. The HTC Touch Diamond is already a winner this year and is now also coming to the U.S. on Sprint.
