HTC Touch Review
The HTC Touch was just launched in Malaysia last week and I had a chance to test one out courtesy of YeapCH.com
Top marks for the presentation box
It's small and the rubbery surface gives it a firm hold. The casing is firm and does not creak under pressure. The touch screen dominates the front. I like the screen, it is very clear and has good visibility under normal lighting.
The screen is a fingerprint magnet so after all that "touching" you will have to clean it up a bit. A quick wipe on your shirt will do the trick!
Nothing much at the back except for the camera.
A thin band of chrome lines the device. The buttons part of the chrome strip. Here the power button is located at the top.
Two tiny rectangular buttons flank the D-pad. Fortunately the directional pad is quite responsive. The small buttons however do not give much tactile feedback at all.
A 2MP camera is the main feature of the otherwise smooth back. Unfortunately it is not an autofocu camera and does not take macro pictures.
There is actually a full sized, non-telescopic stylus that they have snuck into the side. Nice touch!
The plastic back cover is quite hard to slide off because of it's firm fit. The 1100mAh battery, SIM card and microsd slots are hidden inside.

A few comparison shots to show the dimunitive size of the Touch. Here it is next to my Dopod 838 pro/ HTC Hermes.
And next to a standard lighter.
