It seems that it is becoming a habit, filtering phone that ends up appearing on the market, in this case is HTC who have stolen information, and appear to be enough reliability data. This time it is not of any high-end model, nor nothing spectacular to have taken from the manga, I would rather say that the call HTC Opal is an update to the original Touch.
With slight changes in the design, similar specifications, and the inclusion of the interface TouchFlo3D like his older brothers Diamond and Touch Pro, taking advantage of the situation to update to Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system.
Similar to the HTC Touch, The new one Opal will not support 3G connection, yet we have a phone quad-band connectivity GPRS, Bluetooth 2.0, and the increasingly more useful possibility to connect via WiFi.
An at least disconcerting aspect is the one concerning its adequacy in terms of power, still incorporating the same Texas Instruments OMAP 850 processor 200 MHz, if already difficulties encountered the first Touch interface, don’t want it I imagine with the TouchFlo3D. Maybe the issue has been corrected with an excellent optimization, but well we will see that in a short time. In a matter of memory mobile phone has 256 MB ROM and 128 MB RAM.
Other aspects to comment are the 2 mega pixel camera, a screen 2.8 inch QVGA (240 x 320) and slot MicroSD card for extra storage.
Taking into account that practically we are talking about the same terminal to the Touch, it would be interesting that they take into account the possibility of updating the current with the new interface and the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system, from the point of view of the company I don’t think to be as profitable as selling a new phone, but it would be a detail to their owners.
Last comment that he had not been bad in this renewal to have lightened the weight and dimensions of the appliance.
