LG KS20 has fewer features than HTC Touch Cruise (LG KS20 does not have GPS). The battery life is longer in HTC. The screen in better in HTC. Furthermore no warranty that LG will really manufacture their prototype.
I would wait for LG KS20 to launch in malaysia due to the weight and design ... KS20 design is far more better compare to cruise. The comprehensive review on HTC Cruise can be read at http://www.mobile88.com/mobilegallery/phonereview.asp?review=htc_touch_cruise&prodid=20785&cat=37&path=40,37&pg=review
There will be much competion. As cell phones get better, the competion will be greater. Right now the HTC Cruise is still champ in my book. It has a better battery life than the O2-ORBIT. And it just looks better. Althought it doesn't have TV OUT, a IR Port and a QWERTY keyboard, Im still getting one.
The choice is yours.....
GREAT Phone with poor rating! Just wondering how unfair are the judges! O2 orbit phone scored higher then HTC. Come on Guys! O2 OEM from HTC, and what makes them a better phone!?
does any one know what accessories come inside the box with the htc touch cruise?
sure u received your phone already, please share with us your xperient.
to sdo: if you want a "portable pc" go for HTC cruise, if you want a Multimedia phone go for Nokia
Awesome, I can tell ya now that this kinda phone will be rare in the US. I don't even have it yet and I love it from just reading and looking at it on youtube.
Oh crap, I forgot Tuesday is a holiday. Oh well, I hope it will be delivered on Wednesday.
Thanks for the reply. I found one on online auction. And I just purchased it. I can't wait to receive it on Tuesday.
Also, to the previous poster. The HTC touch cruise I believe is just now being release on the european and asian markets. Doubt you will see this in the US for awhile. Look at the AT&T Tilt. It's a HTC TyTn II that's missing some cool features from the original.
Already puchased mine from www.simoncells.com. The site is US based, so I take it he's unlocking and importing them. I took the 2 year warranty the site offers.
Already have AT&T sending me a SIM card with an unlimited data and text package. Choose AT&T because of their 3G network availibity compared to the other US carriers.
Can't wait for this baby to come in this week.
Can anyone please tell me if this is better than the HTC TyTNII . I really and a smartphone for battery life and multimedia functions . I would apreciate very much an honest answer , thanks !
This is one of the best phones anyone can get. It does way more than a great deal of phones today, including the iphone. If you are looking for quality this is the phone you wanna get. If you can live without a qwerty key pad, no tv out, and no ir port, then this is it. Just compare the Stats on GSM ARENA. I'll be getting one as soon as i can.
Take care ya'll
I am in the process of upgrading my contract with O2. Currently they don't have the Touch Cruise but they have the Orbit II coming out next month. If you look at the specs then the only real difference is the WiFi. Are they in fact the same phones?
Will you use the keyboard a lot. You're not going to write an essay on the your PDA are you? Then go for TOUCH CRUISE. Keyboard attracts dirts and make the phone fatter. No silicone case for it.
As long as you use WM5 or 6, you can use Skype.
Although I haven't tried, Skype works with all Window Mobile devices. It's software dependency not hardware
You should buy IPhone if:
1. Use AT&T service plan including unlimited data access
Buy HTC Touch Cruise if
1. Want to have total control over phone. (Hundreds of free softwares, games available, create your own software etc)
2. UNLOCKED. YOu can use with any Sim cards.
I had and still have the P3300. My cousin has the IPhone. I still love mine. SO I definitely go for HTC Touch Cruise especially it has more RAM and ROM now.
