HTC reckons it's got more Sense than you think

Taiwanese phone company HTC – chairwoman Cher Wang – unveiled a different kind of Sense at the Mobile World Congress today. The spinners have gone nuts. Much of the blurb is NonSense.

It’s going to offer what it dubs an “enhanced” HTC Sense experience on two Android smartphones called “Legend” and “Desire”.

And of course, according to Peter Chou, the CEO of HTC – they “will take Android to another level”. HTC has apparently created a “revolutionary aluminium uni-body design”.

The following doesn’t make much sense, but Sense centres around three “core tenets” called “Make it Mine”, “Stay Close” and “Discover the Unexpected”.

What is HTC on about?

The Legend has a 3.2-inch AMOLED HVGA display and has swapped out a trackball for an optical joystick.

The Desire has a 3.7-inch AMOLED WVGA display and uses a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU – unlike the iPhone, the “Desire” supports Adobe Flash 10.1. It’s got an optical joystick too.

The company is selling them in Europe through Vodafone and directly beginning in April.

“At its essence, the mobile phone is the most personal item you have in your possession. HTC Sense was created to magnify your ability to create and define your own unique mobile experience,” said Peter Chou. What  Stuff and NonSense. Oh, we see Waggoner Edstrom are the spinners. Now we understand.
