News in from Taiwanese handset maker HTC. They’ve just launched a new Windows mobile-based phone called the ‘Touch’, which has ‘TouchFLO’ technology. In English? It’s not just a normal touch screen handset, as it can handle finger control.
According to the BBC, “menus can be around and opened by moving a finger in a given direction.”
It sounds suspiciously similar to what we know of the iPhone interface – although HTC aren’t making it totally finger control, providing a stylus with the handset for more “complex actions”.
HTC have a very pretty website for the Touch here if you fancy a gander. Lots of photos, 3D views and stuff to make you drool. Perhaps the iPhone has got a competitor?
