Don't blame this model, if you're looking for phone with WIFI, you can select HTC Touch instead of HTC Touch Dual, both phones are not expensive, if you want everything (like 3G, WIFI, keypad...) you can select others like Tytn, Cruise, O2 ... but price will cost you a bomb.
Please study your ideal phone spec. before buying and don't blaming on the phone don't have this and that after that.
I bot this phone too, I've O2 Atom Exec, O2 Zinc, SE P1i and HP 112 classic at home, all having WIFI, and I use my HP 112 whenever I need WIFI, maybe you can say why so troublesome to bring 2 PDA, this is all depend on your own preference, I prefer to have a big screen (min 3.5") to view my drama on the move and I'm not a heavy WIFI user so I bot this HTC Touch Dual, and I'm very happy with this high ROM,high RAM phone.
If first time PDA buyer, I would recommend you to buy HTC Touch instead of HTC Touch Dual as Touch price is consider not expensive as you compare with other PDA phones, and Touch have almost everyhing (except 3G), if you still don't get used of PDA phone, you still can use it for other purpose without SIM card.
So, choose your ideal phone, study the specs aand comments before buying your new phone.
Sorry if I offence you.
A windows mobile 6 phone with the advantage of a normal keypad AND touchflo feature like an Iphone. A dream combination on any PDA. After hitting a jackpot of a combo what do the HTC guys do ??? They goof up like a bunch of stupid geeks and dont provide WLAN. And bundle a very weak battery (only 1120 mAh. Most PDA's have around 1500 mAh). Why HTC Why ????
Hey guys i want to know how i can have internet if there is not WLAN on the phone! Please help me! Is touch better than this?
I just got this phone & it really pissed me offffffff when i found out about no wifi. i dont know what the hell these people making it thought? u pay all this money and no wifi??? i had my tytnI & it was great.I dont recomend it if you use wifi.
well for almost £400 its not worth the money, slide action is crap, the slide down keypad looks cheap and feels like the keypad would come away after using it a lot as it looks as if its stuck on with pritt stick, the touch flo was good when it wanted to work, I'd say that phone should be cheaper for what it is then orange won't moan to much that they need to con us to stay afloat haha cheapskate network
i was just going to buy this phone ..lucky to see here that there is no wifi in this phone..!!! :-(
i just wonder why htc touch dual don't have wifi technology while htc touch got it? anyone own this phone can clarify this. is it true?
its the best windows phone i have used. but still got sent back on second day of use.
-great quality phone feels great in your hand its small but noy too small
-has great htc interface can access call emails txt weather or appoitments with easy
-its fairly quick for windows phone.
- its not quick enough
-its a pain in the ass to txt or email. if you txt or email a lot then this phone is not for you.
-LACK of full QWERTY key pad.
overall this phone is very good certaininly if you want something that you dont need to be txting or emailing all day but the odd one here and there. its great for calling its small and is a quality device. htc are getting close to making the first windows based phone that i will use
Ok, for those with Nokia's comparing their fone to this handset wondering if its a good upgrade the answer is Yes, by far. Firstly its windows based so everything sync's through to your computer perfectly as you would expect from a windows handset. From all of your contacts down to installing programmes its soooo easy. Secondly it handles videos very well being able to support divx type files so the quality is near perfect for a screen this size. Be glad your in a position where you can upgrade to this fone because i can't im tied in for 12months :(
There is an SMS software that works with all windows based phones called Jeyo..check this link.
I am keen on buying this phone, but need to know how does wi fi serve the need in a mobile phone if edge is activated?
I have the HTC touch, and it is CRAP CRAP CRAP! After 8 weeks the creen malfunctioned big time and everytime you tried use the stylus, it would just respond to something else on teh screen. Hence it was a real pain using the touch pad for making calls and frustrating to use my calendar, as i ened up having to manoever with the square button on the bottom. Anyone having the same problem with the dual in this respect?
I was wondering if the video playback is any good?
At the moment i got a N73, and i use it as a pvp(pmp).
I know the N73 can run video at 15fps, but i cant find any info about the touch dual, in that regard.
I also know the N73 can run video in other framerate“s, it just displays them at 15fps, so how is the touch dual in that regard?
There was a video review(The only review i cud find, that showed the video playback), that showed the touch dual playing video, but it never showed it running in fullscreen, can it?
Lots of dumb questions, i know... x-)
