HTC Touch retail box
The HTC Touch device was announced today that uses their new TouchFLO display technology. This technology gives users the ability to “flick” the screen with their finger to launch shortcuts and scroll lists.
Inner black box
This is a very sturdy, high quality package for the HTC Touch.
First look at the Touch
The Touch is centered on a bed of foam.
Earphones on either side of the Touch
The earphones highlight the Touch in the center of the first opening flap.
The slip case is pretty basic
There is no belt loop or anything, but the device is so small it can slip into any pocket.

Details on the included accessories.
T-Mobile Dash vs HTC Touch
As you can see even the small Dash appears large compared to the Touch.
Touch on the Dash
They are both about the same thickness.
Side view of Dash and Touch
The Touch is shorter than the Dash too.
2 megapixel camera and mirror
The camera looks to be better than the Dash, but further testing is needed.
Back of the Touch
The entire back is removable to access the battery, SIM card and microSD card. The back speaker is a mono version for speakerphone usage and music playing.
The camera button is found along the lower right side.
Volume is managed with a simple slider switch on the left side.
Bottom of the Touch
A lanyard loop, reset button, miniUSB port, and microphone opening are found on the bottom.
Bottom of the front
The Touch is simple with small send and end buttons and a nice sized directional pad.
Phone speaker and indicator lights
The lights are hidden inside the speaker grill. This is for phone calls when you hold it to your ear with a back speaker for speakerphone and music.
Battery and open back
1100 mAh should be good for at least a day on this small device.
MicroSD and SIM cover
This cover seems a bit cheesy and you won’t want to remove it too often.
