HTC Sensation loses exclusivity

Popular high-street mobile phone retailer Carphone Warehouse has opened up pre-ordering of the High Tech Computer Corporation’s Sensation dual-core Android handset – on contracts starting from £35 a month.

HTC Sensation was launched at an event in London with Vodafone, who was thought to exclusively be carrying the newest dual-core phone on the market. That deal has now been lifted, with Orange being the latest network to feature the mobile.

The Sensation arrives with a premium design, with rounded edges and an aluminium unibody construction with the world’s first contoured screen on a mobile phone.

HTC’s handset hits CPW with a Gorilla glass 4.3-inch qHD 540x960 touch SLCD screen, whilst being powered by a Qualcomm MSM 8260 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU.

On-board is 1GB of internal 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.

Carphone Warehouse is stocking the HTC Sensation on a £35 tariff, with 900 minutes, an unlimited text message bundle for £35 a month – where the same cost also holds 600 minutes, an unlimited text message allowance and a 750MB mobile broadband offering.

One Mobile Ring has recently taken delivery of the HTC Sensation, where we published a hands-on walkthrough in pictures here and a review here.
