HTC Sensation is Released

HTC Sensation is finally in the market. Codenamed as HTC Pyramid, this certainly has been one phone since the Motorola Atrix that people have been eagerly awaiting. It must be said that the phone lives up to its name. The phone packs a real powerful punch with 4.3 inch Super LCD display, dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, and Android Gingerbread (2.3) with Sense 3.0.

The rear shooter on this device is an 8Mega Pixel one with dual LED Flash and it also sports a front facing camera of VGA quality. The new HTC Sense certainly looks remarkable and the ability to launch applications right from the lock screen is one that people have been waiting for a long time. Needless to say the phone supports 4G.

The phone is currently on T-Mobile Carrier and available to customers in US at a very decent price of $199.99 on a two year contract.
