HTC Sensation arrives on T-Mobile

One part of Everything Everywhere’s umbrella company T-Mobile has now taken stock of HTC’s first dual core processor powered Sensation mobile phone, on a £40.85 a month contract.

The HTC Sensation was jointly unveiled with Vodafone in May, where it was first believed to be an exclusive handset for that network where now it has arrived on many other carriers with T-Mobile just being the latest.

The phone 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 Sensation tips up with a Gorilla glass 4.3-inch qHD 540s960 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, which is capable of 1080p HD video recording, whilst running from Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 with the new HTC Sense 3.0 overlay.

The updated Sense now allows for a customisable lock-screen, where apps can still run when the handset is in a dormant state. This active lock-screen can now display social networking updates or provide access to the most frequently used applications, all by simply turning on the screen.

T-Mobile’s HTC Sensation offering is accompanied by 1200 minutes, a 500 text message bundle, an unlimited data allowance and a ‘flexible booster’ in the form of unlimited text messages, calls to landlines or T-Mobile numbers and a range of international call options.
