HTC Touch Cruise

There are a lot of phones out there, so phone manufacturers have to come up with gimmicks to make their phones stand out. HTC’s Touch Cruise has a pretty interesting gimmick. When you place the phone in a dock, the phone automatically goes into GPS mode. It’s actually a pretty convenient feature considering you don’t have to look for an icon somewhere on the phone to change functions.

HTC also touts a feature called “HTC Footprints” which automatically geotags your photos so you don’t have to wonder “Where was I when I took this photo?” The phone runs Windows Mobile 6.1 with HTC TouchFLO, has a 2.8-inch touch screen, 3.2 megapixel camera, and music and video players built in. Overall, it’s a pretty stylish looking phone that makes you wonder what HTC was thinking when they designed the G1.
