Today HTC announced a new and improved version of the Touch Cruise, which comes with HTC Footprints, a new application that lets users snap personal shots of a special place or moment on-the-go and then store audio notes to help them better remember the occasion.

Photos taken with the Touch Cruise are stored as postcards and auto tagged and named by the Footprints app with the GPS-coordinates of the location of the shot so that you can easily retrace your footsteps when you are ready for a walk down memory lane or when you need to let the cabbie know how to get back to your hotel in an unfamiliar city.

The HTC Touch Cruise also comes with a car cradle, that transforms the phone's UI into a touch screen to tap for turn-by-turn directions in lieu of a built-in navi system. The device is expected to be available this spring across all major global markets.
