HTC Sensation is the epic smartphone Android fans have been waiting for and I’m please to confirm it’s now on sale.
The HTC Sensation harnesses a powerful dual-core processer that allows customers to enjoy graphic-intensive games, HD video, fast mobile web browsing and multitasking. The combination of the very latest Android 2.3 operating software and HTC Sense means customers can totally customise this phone with thousands of apps, widgets and games. This allows them quick access to the information and entertainment that matters to them most.
The Sensation is among the first Telstra Android smartphones to launch with TelstraOne – a new Android app that brings unmetered news, sports and weather feeds direct to your Android homescreen via customisable widgets.
This smartphone is one of a growing number of Telstra handsets enabled to support HD Voice. Telstra customers with a HD-compatible handset can make and receive HD Voice calls automatically at no extra cost where the receiver also uses a HD Voice compatible handset on the Next G® network – Australia’s only mobile HD Voice network.
Complementing the HTC Sensation’s premium design and multimedia capabilities is the latest HTC Sense user interface that makes the phone easy to navigate. The new HTC Sense introduces a customisable active lockscreen that transforms the lockscreen into a real-time window to the most important information and content, such as social updates, photos, weather or stock updates that are viewed by simply turning on the display. In addition, the new active lockscreen becomes a customisable gateway that lets people quickly jump to the most used features, like making a phone call, sending an email, taking a picture or anything else with the same quick gesture usually used to unlock the phone. It’s a real leap forward.
