Windows Mobile 6.5 makes its debut with the HTC Pure, a sharp-looking phone utilizing the convenience of a touch screen interface. Physical controls are limited to four core buttons including Talk, Back, End, and Windows, a zoom slider on the front face, volume control on the side, and a power/lock button located on the top. The 3.2-inch touch screen is a nice size for browsing and is capable of great resolution up to 800x480. Wi-Fi capabilities further simplify web browsing and dual browsers gives the user the choice between Opera Mobile for a basic browser and Internet Explorer Mobile 6.5 software for a fuller, more desktop-like browsing experience including support for Adobe Flash. GPS and Bluetooth compatibility are both included on the HTC Pure and simplify your gadget needs. The device boasts the same 5MP camera with digital zoom, touch auto-focus and video recording as its predecessor, the Diamond 2. Although lacking in on-board storage with only 144MB of data storage built in, a cleverly hidden microSD card slot beneath the battery can accommodate up to an additional 16MB of storage space.
One thing HTC Pure users will certainly appreciate is the consolidation of all communication logs under each contact. The full communication history is included whether it is by e-mail, text, or call log, stored for easy to access, and separated by contact. Easy access to the Windows Marketplace makes it easy to customize the HTC Pure with new functions to meet each individual’s needs, and purchases made are conveniently added to your monthly phone bill so that security isn’t an issue. The HTC Pure has certainly also delivered in the area of price; for a Smartphone with touch screen experience with access to great features at a more affordable price, check out the HTC Pure and you won’t be disappointed.
