There are some slight design changes, first of all, it has an all black casing instead of some silver accents, and on the back you have that kind of prison like back cover that we saw on the first HTC Touch Diamond, but it is a little more slick and, ya know, holds a lot of smudges and fingerprints if you care about that. On front you have a really sharp VGA display as well as the Touch-Flow 3D interface, so basically you can just go through the menus with finger swipes and also look for your emails and photos that we talked about with finger swipes like that. It also has a built-in accelerometer so if you rotate the phone the screen will rotate with it. Also has a built-in QWERTY keyboard you just slide the screen to the right. And the keyboard's a little bit different, instead of a dedicated number row on top you've got symbols up here and they're also shortcuts to your applications, overall we did like the keyboard. You can view and edit Word and Excel documents as well as PowerPoint presentations. Email support, there's a few solutions you can use it supports Microsoft Direct Push technology so you can sync with your Outlook, calendar, email and all that stuff. Also supports AT&T Express Mail as well as BlackBerry Connect, there are some instant messaging clients preloaded on the device. Multi-media features include a 3 point 2 Megapixel camera as well as support for AT&T Video and its music store. Wireless connections include WiFi, Bluetooth, AGPS, so you're fully covered and it's also HSDPA so you'll get those 3 point 5 3G speeds for faster Web browsing and downloads. Overall good call quality, just a really good business device just like the HTC Touch Pro, I think. For more information on availability and pricing you can check out my review at CNET.com. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your first look at the HTC Fuze for AT&T. ^M00:02:05 [ Music ]
