HTC beats Apple to the touch

The Apple iPhone will be here at the end of June and I have to admit after watching the latest TV ads that the speed and coolness of the device has me lusting after the device. It seems there may be a solution to take the edge off of the iPhone desire for those of you in Europe with the surprise announcement by HTC (the world's leading provider of Windows Mobile-based devices) of their revolutionary HTC Touch device. The Touch uses their TouchFLO touch screen technology that allows you to sweep your finger (flick it) up the display to launch an animated, 3D interface comprised of Contacts, Media (photos, music, video), and Applications (email, web browser, etc) so that you can get nearly instantaneous access to your device. The HTC Touch is designed to maximize usability without requiring the consumer to manipulate the standard Windows Mobile interface which can be a bit daunting at times for new users who are mobile enthusiasts like us.
