Readers here know that I went back to an Apple iPhone and if you listen to MobileTechRoundup show #105 then you will hear if any other hosts on the show were swayed by the beautiful device. There were a couple of birthday notes on the show, including the ThinkPad computers. A new browser was released for the Nokia N800 and with the recent Skype update this Internet Tablet is getting more and more capable. A couple new devices are coming soon, including the HTC Kaiser and BlackBerry 8820 that includes WiFi and UMA support. A listener submitted a great email and if you are looking for a great deal on a wireless data plan I highly encourage you to listen to what Jeff had to write in to us.

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.
