HTC Touch Cruise Announced, Chock-Full of GPSy Goodness


HTC Touch Cruise (a.k.a Iolite) Announced, Chock-Full of GPSy Goodness

Last week we got a closer look at the HTC Iolite, highlighting a particularly mysterious footprint key at the bottom. Well, today the Touch Cruise has been announced, and we learn that the key is reserved for a little service called Footprints. Footprints allows users to quickly geotag their location with pictures, audio clips, and notes, as well as retrace their path. I’m a huge fan of geotagging, namely because it’s using GPS for something other than driving directions for a change, but the Touch Cruise handles that as well with a bundled car cradle. When locked in, the Touch Cruise changes its UI to something a little more driver-friendly. On the whole, this phone’s got some flavour to it - keep an eye out this Spring.
