leave a comment »

Today, HTC announced the release of the updated Touch Cruise, the GPS centric device that it launched last year. The new release is a much sleaker version of the older model along with a host of new features including its new geo-tagging software called Footprints. This new software allows users to not only geo-tag their photos to make digital postcards but also add notes and audio to it. According to HTC, the Footprints software will be able to geo-tag both outdoors and indoors, though how it manages its little trick indoors is bit of a mystery.  It also has a 2.8 inches touchscreen display and its detailed specs are:
