I got this media release of the Next Generation TouchFLo upgrade for HTC Touch just a while ago. Please do not be mistaken that this is the HTC Touch 3G. This is NOT the one. It is the older version of Touch phone. However, with the software ROM upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.1 and the next generation TouchFlo, this phone is rejuvenating itself. In fact, in the media release, it mentioned the retail price of S$548 with a bundled 1 GB MicroSD card at Authorised Reseller. More information after the break.
Here is the media release.
