Last week, Taiwan-based High Tech Computer (HTC), the world's largest smart phone manufacturer, released a new touchscreen smart phone under its own brand to the UK market. And HTC plans to make it available in the U.S. later this year. The device is creatively dubbed the HTC Touch, and seems uniquely designed to compete with Apple's iPhone. Sure, it's got nothing close to iPhone-style hype, but will its functionality (and suggested price of $480) make up for it? Watch this video and find out.
