HTC Touch Cruise gives users an expanded TouchFlo interface with new gestures like half turn of the finger to rotate an object, complete turn to the right to zoom in and complete turn in the other direction to zoom out.

Thank’s to increased memory (128MB RAM/256MB ROM) and Qualcomm MSM 7200 chipset with 400MHz CPU, HTC Cruise responses are very fast.

And, of course, there’s GPS navigation with maps provided by TomTom, Wi-Fi, 3 megapixel camera and lot’s of other cool things.

Full HTC Touch Cruise specs include:

  • Qualcomm 7200 chipset
  • Built-in GPS receiver
  • TomTom mapping
  • 400MHz CPU
  • TouchFLO UI
  • 256MB/128 MB ROM/RAM
  • Wi-Fi connectivity

  • 2.8â€? QVGA Touch Screen
  • FM Radio

HTC Touch Cruise price haven’t been announced yet, but it certainly won’t be cheap. If HTC Touch Dual is any guide, the unlocked version would probably cost well above 500 EUR.
