The good folks down under are finally getting access to the highest end Windows Mobile phone, with the HTC Touch HD being launched exclusively on Telstra until the 30th April, using their NextG 850 Mhz band network.
The device has been modified to fit their services, with the ability to watch Foxtel movies over Next G, and easy access to specific video channels. The HD will also support turn by turn navigation either for a subscription of $15 per month or on a pay per use basis.
The handset will be a pricey AU$1499 (about US$1000) without contract, or $62.45 per month on a 24 month $150 per month service contract.
While the phone does support the 850 Mhz band this does not necessarily mean it can be used for 3G access on AT&T as its likely missing the 1900 band essential for AT&T.
