HTC , a leader in mobile phone innovation and design,released its latest personal navigation handset with inbuilt GPS. The new HTC Touch Cruise™, an update to 2008’s popular HTC GPS device of the same name, but this one boasts a new, more compact design and a host of new capabilities to offer a richer and more intuitive experience in one powerful package.
The HTC Touch Cruise is the first device to incorporate HTC Footprints™, a new feature that allows people to capture special moments and places in a whole new way.
With HTC Footprints, mobile images are taken to the next level by allowing people to tag their pictures with a variety of additional information. There are a number of scenarios that you could imagine for this: Family historians can capture audio clips with each image, effectively capturing in the moment thoughts and feelings.
Leisure travelers can take advantage of the included GPS chipset and tag each image with its exact coordinates, as well as rename that image with the location it was taken. When a person goes back through old images, they find their life’s moments chronicled in detail in the palm of their hand.
Those taking long road trips can use the car cradle (which is included) and one touch navigation for turn by turn directions. Once placed in its cradle, the device’s navigation user interface automatically turns on and provides turn by turn directions on the 2.8” QVGA touchscreen. Once removed from its cradle, the device returns to its regular home screen, effectively eliminating the need for two separate devices. Additionally, the HTC Touch Cruise includes full turn-by-turn navigation capability without needing to pay for a navigation service subscription.
Utilizing HTC’s TouchFLO technology and running on Windows Mobile 6.1, the HTC Touch Cruise continues HTC’s legacy of bringing powerful smartphones to the market. The device also incorporates Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, along with a MicroSD expansion slot allowing virtually limitless work and play. The HTC Touch Cruise is available in all major global markets.
