PocketNow reviews the HTC Touch HD

PocketNow, who has been teasing us with short previews of their HTC Touch HD, has finally published their full review of the device:

After 4 pages of text, pictures and video, Brandon came to this conclusion:

OVERALL IMPRESSION
As I mentioned, for the business user, the Touch HD is just not practical. Instead, business users should consider the HTC Touch Pro or SE XPERIA X1. If you’re looking for the most flashy/sexy/gorgeous (and capable) multimedia and internet browsing phone that has ever been sold, the Touch HD deserves your serious consideration
