Photos: HTC Touch HD, the phone Android should've launched on

We love the HTC Touch HD, but we'd like it so much more if it ran Android. Google, if you're reading this, please, please, please make an Android phone like this

The T-Mobile G1 has sparked some controversy at Crave, around whether or not the hardware does Android justice -- most of us think it doesn't. Yes, the G1 is practical and good if you like a mechanical Qwerty keypad, but where's the sexiness? Where are the iPhone-killing looks? Well, they're on HTC's next device, the HTC Touch HD.

Boasting a massive colour touchscreen that measures 50mm wide by 82mm tall, a slim design and all the features you'd expect from a modern smartphone -- GPS, Wi-FI and HSDPA -- the Touch HD is a real beauty. Alas, Google and HTC aren't running Android on it -- instead the Touch HD stumbles along on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional.

If you're a business person, the thought of a Windows Mobile iPhone-a-like might get your blood pumping, but we want Android on it and we want it now. If you're reading this, Google, we ask -- no, beg -- you to get HTC to make something for you like this. Click 'Continue' for more pictures and information.
