HTC Touch Cruise review

 

HTC's Windows Mobile smart phone gets sat-nav

Responsive touch screen GPS with TomTom sat-nav, 3 megapixel camera, HSDPA, Wi-Fi

Heavier than original Touch, no camera flash, average pictures, poor video quality, no 3.5mm headphone jack

Not the first choice for camera or music player, but as a do-everything smartphone with sat-nav, it takes some beating.

HTC Touch Cruise smartphone - Pocket-lint

 

If you are looking for a Windows Mobile smartphone with all the options, then this does pretty much everything

HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, solid feel, Touch Cube

Volume slider rattles, no keyboard may deter some, negligible storage

Overall, if you are looking for a smartphone with all the options, then this does pretty much everything. If you are happy with Windows Mobile, then the HTC Touch Cruise packs a lot of action into a small package.

The Cruise's spec sheet includes a 2.8-inch touchscreen, a three-megapixel camera with autofocus, built-in GPS with TomTom software, HSDPA, and multimedia staples FM radio, MP3 player and video player. It also uses HTC's TouchFLO technology. Its...

One of the better Touch smartphones from HTC. The satnav works well and there's plenty more besides. Just don't rely on the camera too much! And don't get us started on the Cruise control... HTC Cruise is tagged with HTC, mobile phone, GPS device and...

HTC Touch Cruise review

 

We review the HTC Touch Cruise smartphone which offers everything from WiFi amd HSDPA connectivity to TomTom GPS satnav software

Responsive touch screen ; Touch Cube interface ; GPS with TomTom sat-nav ; 3 megapixel camera ; HSDPA (3.6Mbps) ; Wi-Fi ; 1GB microSD card supplied

Chunkier than previous Touches ; No camera flash ; Poor video record ; No 3.5mm headphone jack plug

A great little do-it-all device that packs in virtually everything you'll ever need in a smart, easy-to-use package

Shiny Review: HTC Touch Cruise

 

The HTC Touch still causes some people in Shiny Towers to give a small orgasmic shudder (disclaimer: this is an exaggeration) and to me nothing could be more perfect that taking a lovely phone and shoving a sat nav in. I'm one of those crazy Londoners...

HTC Touch Cruise

 

The Touch Cruise is not a bad take on a feature-crammed smartphone, but there is stiff competition out there.

HTC's characteristic TouchFLO look is here, and there is a strong range of features.

We didn't find the flat screen as responsive to touch as we would like.
