HTC Sensation available to order

Mobile phone network Vodafone has opened up registration for the first dual-core Android HTC Sensation handset, which will directly lead to the ordering of the phone with an expected delivery date of mid-May.

Vodafone jointly launched the Sensation handset with HTC where it was believed to be exclusive to the network; the mobile phone network Three has now made public it will also be carrying the device – presumably just after Vodafone exclusivity has passed.

HTC’s Sensation arrives with a Gorilla glass 4.3-inch qHD 540x960 Super LCD touch screen, whilst being powered by a Qualcomm MSM 8260 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU.

There’s 1GB of on-board storage and a dual flash LED 8 megapixel camera that is capable of 1080p HD video recording, whilst running from Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 with the new HTC Sense 3.0 overlay.

HTC’s Sensation comes with a new video service known as HTC Watch, which allows for videos to be rented or bought with the media being playable as it starts to download with content available as high as 1080p HD.

Vodafone hasn’t made public any tariff details or pricing information for the HTC Sensation, although One Mobile Ring expects the contract plans and costs to mirror high-end mobiles such as the BlackBerry 9800 Torch or the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II.
