In tandem with the release of the HTC Desire HD and HTC Desire Z Android-based smart phones, HTC Sense offers a number of unique connected services called HTCSense.com that promise to enhance the HTC mobile-phone experience (see the figure). These enhancements are expected to improve how users capture, create, share, and access multimedia content. They can record HD video or capture/edit images with a variety of camera effects.
Using HTC Locations, a differentiated online mapping experience, users have access to instant, on-demand mapping without download delays or roaming charges. HTC Sense also includes an online e-reading experience employing an e-book store powered by Kobo and a mobile-optimized e-reader with the ability to highlight, annotate, and search for definitions as well as translate unfamiliar terms. Essentially, the HTCSense.com service will allow registered users to easily manage their mobile phone experience from their HTC phone or personal computer.
