    It seems that the Sprint version incorporates some of the changes that were put into the Touch Dual (except for the sliding keyboard) like faster processor, no WiFi. Does anyone know if the Sprint Touch will also have the upgrades to the Touch Flow photo browser with the slide show and zoom features?
    Bumping for an answer to this question.

    So, the Touch Dual has a smaller screen, slightly thicker body, but has a slideout keyboard. The Dual also has some improvements in the UI for one handed operation and user experience.

    Sprint is getting the Touch. Not the Dual. But, after reading today about CooTek's TouchPal - the typing thing could become far less of an issue for me.

    I type 7-10 email's and 5-10 text messages per day on my device. But, I love a keyboard for looking up contacts too, which I do far more often. A keyboard and one handed are critical requirements for me.

    I'm hoping we see the Sprint Touch have the new specs of the Dual (minus keyboard) and the UI improvements. I also hope that I can test the TouchPal somehow.

    This phone has really got my attention. I can't believe it - but, for the first time in several years - I am really, really excited about a handheld device. The iPhone is too limited. My 755 is rock solid, does everything I need (EVDO, ActiveSync, TomTom, DUN, etc.) - but, I would like a bigger screen and a smaller form factor.

    Will the Touch do DUN like the Treo with BTooth or USB?


    Edit below
    Okay, I watched the videos of TouchPal. WOW. IMHO this blows the iPhone text entry away. This is very intuitive and I can see myself really getting up to speed quickly on this. I already downloaded the software since it is free until December 8th (going off memory). I am definately going to try the Touch when it comes to Sprint. Having the TouchPal as a default keyboard for every app would be great!

    Still not sure if GPS is TeleNav, disabled, or not there at all. But, with all the software out there, a removable battery, swappable memory, and now a keyboard which seems to be very elegant and FAST - this could be a real winner for me.

    I sort of doubt it, actually. I can't say for sure, but I'm willing to bet if it was there the Sprint rep would have been jumping up and down to show it to me.

    Yes, unless Sprint cripples it. :(

    You are implying that you doubt the new TouchFlo features (enlarged Start Menu, Picture Rotate, Zoom, Slideshow, etc.) demonstrated on the videos for Touch Dual - will be left out of the Sprint Touch?

    Why would they do that? Isn't it just a software mod?

    I think it's because those were developed after they finalized the ROM for the Sprint Touch. On the other hand, it's highly likely that enterprising hackers will be able to pull those features off the Touch Dual and make them available for the Sprint Touch.

    Yay for the hackers. I hope they port that over. I cannot imagine why it wouldn't be possible.

    Do you know if the Touch will run Goodlink?

    The Telus HTC Touch has the TouchFlo 2 enhancements.

    I don't know much about goodlink, so I can't say. Can't imagine why it wouldn't.

    Is the HTC Touch that is being released in Novemeber coming with a slide out keyboard? If not, does anyone know if Sprint plans to release the version with a slide out keyboard anytime soon? Thanks in advance.

    No, but there are some really good on-screen keyboards

    Last week I read the Sprint HTC Touch user manual online. Now I cannot find the link. Does anyone have it?

    I'm trying to find out if the Touch have a programable button so that I can use Microsoft Voice Command instead of the voice command software that comes with it. The voice command software that comes with the Touch requires you to record a tag for all your contacts.

    I have a GSM Touch. I think the only button that can be remapped is the camera button, which is not much.

    Surur,

    Do you use voice command on your touch? How does it work? Do you have to record voice comand tags to use it? Can you use voice command thru your bluetooth headset?

    I have used the built in Voice Signal app. You have to record tags, but the advantage is that it works well via bluetooth, which of course means you can use the button on your headset.

    Is it true that there will not be an unlimited data plan for the Touch?

    I do not believe that is true - I have heard nothing about any changes in the data plans. Sprint is hemorrhaging customers quarterly and if they cut their current unlimited plans (the best in the business), they might as well close!
