Android-running HTC Touch.B Surfaces, Looks Like Touch2

The HTC Touch lineup is about to acquire a recent member it seems and this newcomer runs Android. Photos of the HTC Touch.B, codenamed Rome, emerged and they see very much like a remodeled HTC Touch2 with Android parts put on.

Putting the HTC Touch2 and the HTC Tattoo side to side they seem evenly matched, save for a few differences. So if the HTC Touch.B really shares its internals with the HTC Touch2 then we have to wonder what's the point - the Touch2 and Tattoo are equally priced as well.

First photos of HTC Touch.B (codenamed HTC Rome)

But all we have for now are photos which show superficial resemblance, there's no guarantee that the HTC Touch.B will run on the same elegant Qualcomm MSM 7225 528 Mega Hertz (MHz) processor with the same 256Mega Bytes (MB) RAM.

Otherwise, the changes to the exterior are mostly limited to the swapping out of the Windows Mobile specific keys for the Android Home key. It's just the Home key - no Menu or Back keys. Not that Android can't work without those keys, but the vanilla interface works much easier with them.

The HTC Touch.B has a 3.5mm audio jack and a miniUniversal Serial Bus (USB) port

It's just wishful thinking, but it could be becautilize the HTC Touch.B is intended to run a recent version of the Sense UI (both the HTC Hero and HTC Magic have all the Android keys so the current Sense UI still makes utilize of them).

We hope to see more information on the HTC Touch.B soon. We'll be all ears.
