Verizon XV6900 (HTC Touch) Review

The original HTC Touch, released as a GSM phone last June, was one of my favorites and a top seller worldwide. It had incredible good looks, was very small for a PDA phone and it had HTC's then new TouchFLO UI with a screen optimized for a finger rather than a stylus. In November 2007, the Sprint Touch addressed three key issues by incorporating a 2x faster CPU, doubling RAM and adding 3G (in the form of EVDO) for faster Internet access. Verizon Wireless has finally joined the Touch party with their version, simply named the "XV6900". It's identical to the Sprint version in terms of features and specs, but the color is white. The XV6900 loses the usual HTC Touch soft-touch finish, which is a shame, though Verizon told us they had to forego it because the white soft touch finish quickly showed dirt. The mid-gloss white finish looks superb and the typical compact Verizon box matches in white (gone is the fancy black gift box packaging that accompanies the GSM and Sprint models).
