A Boy Can Dream Can't He?

My last post was a bit harsh. But I was simply trying to help Microsoft see the error of their ways. I mean, they read my blog religiously and will immediately head back to the drawing board the minute they see that people have questions about the functionality of WiMo enabled phones...

Back to Reality
To be fair - I'm not hopping on the iPhone bandwagon just yet (even though its a great phone). There are still some amazing phones out there that don't run on fructose...

One such phone is the HTC Touch HD which is currently in release in other parts of the world - unfortunately not the parts of the world I inhabit.

The Skinny Rundown:

  • 3.8-inch wide, WVGA (480 X 800 pixel) display offering a cinema experience on the go.
  • Vibrant TouchFLO 3D user interface, responding perfectly to your finger gestures when scrolling through contacts, browsing the web and launching media.
  • Surf and download at broadband speed with HSDPA internet connectivity (probably not in this country...)
  • Google Maps enhanced by the wide screen viewing platform.
  • 5 megapixel camera for quality stills and video.
  • 3.5 mm audio jack makes the Touch HDTM compatible with the majority of audio equipment available.
Basically there would need to be a celestial anomaly in order for me to get this phone. Pluto would have to become a planet again and we'd have to discover new rings around Saturn...

First, the Touch HD is not available in this country yet. And second, Sprint would have to pick up the phone in order for me to have access to it.

But a boy can dream can't he?
