We are guessing in the coming year there will be many Windows Mobile fans who wont have the budget to buy HTC’s pc_capture48latest high-end fare.  Fortunately HTC has no plans to miss out on sales from these customers and have created a series of mid to low range devices to cater to this market segment.

One of these devices is the HTC Touch 3G, the real successor the the original HTC Touch.  The device misses out on the VGA screen and advances sensors of the Touch Diamond, but due to features like TouchFlo2D retains much of the user experience of the other device.

The pebble-shaped beauty from HTC is a great device to own. It is an awesome, yet affordable combination of performance and beauty packed into single package. Built-in 3G lets you cruise at high data speeds. Numerous HTC enhancements certainly do make the overall user-experience better. The TOUCH FLO 2D provides a pleasurable experience to the user. Couple all those goodies together with an affordable price tag, the HTC TOUCH 3G is a device not to be missed easily.
