HTC launches Sensation in Indian market news

With its latest offering Sensation, Taiwanese manufacturer HTC, has added yet another dual-core Android smartphone in the market, along with the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the LG Optimus 2X.

HTC SensationThe HTC Sensation which comes with a 4.3-inch qHD display having a resolution of 960 x 540, and is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor running Android 2.3 Gignerbread. The device also includes an 8 Mp rear camera with dual-LED flash, capable of recording at 1080p HD. It features 768MB of RAM and 1GB internal storage for applications.

Its price at Rs32,700 and is expected to give a run for its money to the Samsung Galaxy S2 which is officially priced at Rs32,990 and is also available in the Indian market.

Meanwhile, HTC's announcement via its UK facebook page this week must thrown a scare into HTC Desire owners. HTC said, that the popular smartphone would not get an Android 2.3 Gingerbread update.

Considering that the Desire is barely a year old, the news must have caught the users by surprise, they add. The statement even caught UK wireless carrier Three off guard by the statement. it apologised to its subscribers.

In a retraction, later, HTC said the Desire would get a Gingerbread update, but it will need to "cut select (Sense) apps from the release" to free up some memory for the software. Both the UK and US versions of the Desire come with 512MB ROM, while more recent products in the Desire line pack a 1GB of memory.

The news of the potential loss of applications does not seem to be too much of a cause for worry for users. A quick look through the company's Facebook page reveals that plenty of users would be fine without apps such as Peep, Friend Stream, or Footprints.
