Good news for all NSF and NSmen!! (and those working in restricted places where camera is not allowed)
HTC just announced that they are releasing the HTC Touch2 in Non Camera version. In the past, NSmen/NSF are restricted to just Nokia E51 or HTC Snap if they want to own a smartphone in camp. Thanks to HTC, NSmen/NSF have 1 more option when buying smartphones.
The specs for the HTC Touch2 Non Camera is the same as the HTC Touch2. HTC Touch2 has been released for quite some time already, so the specs isn’t really up to date. The good thing about the HTC Touch2 is that it has build in GPS. Install Google map and you are good to go in the jungle. Too bad there isn’t a digital compass. Else it would be even better. There is the usual Bluetooth and WIFI is available. The HTC Touch2 has a 2.8 inch touchscreen. Come to think of it, this might be the first non camera touchscreen phone. (although I may be wrong)
The only problem is that it runs on Windows Mobile 6.5. But come to think of it, I don’t mind carrying a Window Mobile 6.5 phone during reservist. NSmen don’t really have much smartphone choices. Maybe I should get this for my reservist this coming September.
The HTC Touch2 Non Camera will retail at S$398 without contract. Comes in Urban Brown colour. Or I would say, Tactical Brown colour. :)
