Not like its two younger brothers which have cute looks, this one looks so solid; reminds us at Dopod P800W. It is possible that this similarity because both device still having family relation. Moreover, all devices are equipped by GPS. As a whole, the appearance felt "smoothly" because the buttons is made flat like the casing. The example is the plate below the screen which loading 4 button. Besides the ordinary Call and End Call button, there is GPS and Internet Explorer shortcut button addition. Both shortcut likely is default feature because icon picture graven in iron case and we do not find setting to change the shortcut.
As member of Touch family, its touch screen is beyond question is equipped by TouchFLO. We just need to "press - scratch" the screen with thumb to operate menu that we want. The Home screen uses Live HTC Home, what provides weather information (real-time if GPRS is active), most use application (quick access to most used applications) and ringtone setting. If required, the stylus at the bottom is easy to pull swiftly.
The connectivity is can be said complete; there is Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi, and 3G. Unfortunately, Bluetooth has not supported A2DP and AVRCP. About the problem of 3G, we can use Cruise for video-call because in up right corner there are addition of VGA camera. Likely the camera is only use for video call, because we fail to finds this camera setting usage in ordinary camera mode. It’s easy to make a phone call: just push the destiny number, and then push the phone icon in virtual key pad.
Windows Mobile 6 Professional in Touch Cruise is equipped by Direct Push. Hence we can enjoy push mail, with a note that our office use Microsoft Exchange server that supporting Direct Push. The setting of mail account, including free mail account, in this device is easy enough with Auto Setup feature.
Sturdy looks usually not modish; but not be relevant at Touch Cruise. GPS plus connection option to internet will make your office works more pleasant.HTC Touch Cruise ReviewSpecificationNetwork: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, UMTS/HSDPA 2100MHzOperating system: Windows Mobile 6 Professional plus Direct Push OutlookMemory: ROM 256MB, RAM 128MB DDR SDRAMAddition memory: MicroSDForm: Candy BarDimension: 110×58x15,5 mmWeight: 130 gramsBattery: Li-ion 1350 mAhStandby Time: to 400 hoursTalk Time: until 7 hourDisplay: touch screen, 2,8 inches, LCD TFT, 65k colorsConnectivity between devices: mini USB, Bluetooth 20, WifiInternet connectivity: GPRS/EDGE/3GCamera: 3MP, CMOS, auto of focus (main); VGA, CMOS (second)Application: Adobe Reader LE, Audio Booster, Audio Manager, FM RADIO, Internet Sharing, JBlend, MapKing, Opera Browser, Quick GPS, RSS HUB, Streaming Media, Voice Commander, Voice Recorder, ZipCheck This Out:Moto Q 9h Review: No WiFiPalm Treo 755p Review: Back to Palm OSNokia E51 Review: Fast Access for Business
