HTC Sense experience takes Android 2.1 to the next level, claims the manufacturer.
HTC launched its Android-powered HTC Desire smartphone, which will be available in April on Telstra’s Next G network.
The smartphone utilises a fast, 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and a 3.7 inch, WVGA AMOLED display.
HTC Sense is a user experience focused on putting people at the centre by making phones work in a more simple and natural way. This experience revolves around three fundamental principles that were developed by observing and listening to how people live and communicate.
These core principles continue to be key to the unit that begins with a new application and widget called HTC Friend Stream, which is said to seamlessly aggregate all of your social communications including Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr. This aggregation is said to make it easy to focus on what friends are doing as well as the images and links they share. In addition to Friend Stream, people can be organised into specific social circles, such as groups of friends or colleagues.
The mobile handset also introduces improvements to applications including the web browser, email client, a new newsreader application and widget, as well as a new seven-screen ‘Leap’ thumbnail view for quick and easy access to specific screens.
