Hold it! Hold it! Hold it! I have just made a discovery. The HTC Touch HD is a misnomer. Both the HTC Touch Diamond and HTC Touch Pro have higher practical resolution than HTC Touch HD. Pixels stated and diagonal length of screen only have meaning when the length and width dimensions are given.
HTC Touch HD's screen has an image aspect ratio of 16:9. It has a diagonal of 3.8inches (screen); which necessitates a width of 3.31 inches and length 1.86 inches. Since the screen has 800*480 pixels we can work out a value of 62235 pixels/square inch.
If one now does similar maths for the Touch Pro and the Touch Diamond, taking into account that its screen has a 4:3 image aspect ratio, we attain a surprising value:
81633 pixels/square inch!!
The conclusion is that the Touch Pro and the Touch Diamond have higher definition ( ie higher resolution ) than the misnamed Touch HD. The latter has a bigger screen in terms of cross sectional area and width BUT LESS resolution!

THE FLASH, 18 Sep 2008NO FLASH on 5mp camera with a screen that big is going to be a major drawback. think about ... moreThe n95 has a 5mgpx and better than the touch HD. YOu been living under a rock??
I really hope this phone comes to Verizon, I am ready to get a new phone but I do not want to switch just so i can get the Iphone. Hopefuly they can pick this phone up, I feel they are lacking in touch phones compared to other carriers.
After deep meditation, the answer is obvious! The answer is HTC Touch Pro HD. In other words add a hardware QWERTY to this device. One can now view the full width of web pages on the screen without scrolling, and also speed type. I do not see the allure of a Touch HD without a QWERTY. Input is alot slower.
Nokia's E90 owes its success to the phenomenal 4 inch widescreen coupled to the tactile 5 row QWERTY.
Does anyone know if the HTC HD will be later come with a full keyboard similar to what happened between the Diamond and HTC Touch Pro???? If that happens its game over for everyone....HTC will be hte king of kings....so does anyone know if its happening or in consideration???
tbone, 18 Sep 2008what happened to the flash? bring on the X1!what happened to the screen size? get HTC!

Anonymous, 15 Sep 2008Ive used Nokias, HTC's and iphone.
Lets face it, iphone has the most userfriendliness with it... moreThings u missed about iphone:
1. It does not have multitasking whereas WinMO phones do have and that is the first reason why they tend to go slow.
2. One cannot easily customize iPhone like WinMo.
3. Simple things msg fwd ; cut paste etc are missing
the list goes

OK im a g from montreal i love symbian from 6620 6682 e62 n95 8gb finally a phone i would get only if 3g is 850 1900 3.5 jack audio output + tv out large screan . ladies and geentelman thats what i call a all in one office withoout a flash for the cam thats something i can deal with since a n95 is a good all in one it still cant beat HTC Touch HD and buying a digital camera for quality pics
bravo if you complain about the phone make sure it s constructive lol really now the question is it solid and is the screal is some scratch resistant ?
up to now this is for me a 9 out of 10
since windows mobile offers the most powerfull applications on a device witch supports virtually anything a pc dose not taking this phone will result of people not being able to affourd it
good to see the neo gen
NO FLASH on 5mp camera with a screen that big is going to be a major drawback.
think about it if you're in a club at night and you want to take a photo with your brand new 5mp phone, no good. only day photos?
this is the only phone with a great camera but no flash.
this does not make any sense at all, if we're customers and we can see that the no flash will be a big issue, then how cant HTCR*P do the same?
