The HTC Typhoon is a smartphone that runs the Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system. The phone is manufactured by Taiwanese HTC Corporation (HTC). At the time when the Typhoon was made, HTC was not in the business of selling devices to end-users. Instead, the company had many partners who would rebrand and distribute its devices.

It is based on the ARM Texas Instruments OMAP 730 processor running at 200 MHz. It has 32 MB internal RAM and 64 MB of flash ROM, and is expandable via a miniSD slot. It has a TFT display with 65,536 colours at a resolution of 176x220.

It runs Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 SE as its operating system, however it is also capable of running Windows Mobile 5.0 after a version was leaked onto the internet. It supports Java applications. Additionally, hacked, or "cooked" versions of Windows Mobile 6, 6.1 and 6.5 have been circulating on the internet.


"Typhoon" is the HTC codename for this device, and the device has been rebranded by several distributors and cell phone carriers, under the following names:
