We just came from an interesting media briefing held at the Mandarin Oriental in Makati where our good friends from HTC Mr. Wayne Tang, product marketing manager, Southeast Asia and Mr. Mark Dewey Sergio, HTC Country Manager for the Philippines introduced us to the all new and improved Sense 2.0 GUI. Sense is a GUI that brings additional features and functionality to the table, including remote data services like wiping it remotely if it’s stolen.
You can even back up your contacts, your pictures, basically everything that’s in your phone (even the contents of your SD card) onto HTCSense.com and manage everything there. From that page, you can manage your phone, look at your contacts and if your phone is missing or unaccounted for, you can remotely lock it and force whoever picked it up to call you. If worst comes to worst, you can also remotely wipe all the data in it including the contents of the SD card.
The newest version of Sense is currently on two HTC phones as of the moment – the HTC Desire Z and the HTC Desire HD. Aside from all the bling you’d come to expect from top tier smartphones, both units are currently running Android Version 2.2 (Froyo) and boast speedy processors, responsive touchscreens, and generally awesome features. Additionally, Mr. Sergio mentioned their plans to build 3 to 4 more concept stores that are hopefully to be completed in the first half of this year to allow more people to experience HTC’s brand of magic.
