HTC Desire captivates with brilliant display of colours on 3.7 inch capacitive touch screen

Singapore – 14 May, 2010 – HTC Corporation, a global designer of smartphones, today introduced HTC Desire in Singapore. The HTC Desire is the latest Android smartphone that offers the enhanced HTC Sense experience.

“HTC Sense on the new HTC Desire not only offers a dynamic and personalized user experience but also delivers one of the richest visual experiences possible,” said Jack Tong, VP of HTC Asia. “It’s the stuff of powerful inspiration.”

HTC Desire delivers intense brilliance, sharp contrast, and true colors on the gorgeous 3.7-inch capacitive touch screen display. The 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor makes the phone incredibly responsive while the instinctive HTC Sense experience lets you wield the power of the HTC Desire with the greatest of ease.

HTC Sense is a user experience focused on putting people at the centre by making phones work in a more simple and natural way. This experience revolves around three fundamental principles that were developed by observing and listening to how people live and communicate.

The new HTC Sense experience continues to focus on improving your interactions with your most important people. This begins with a new HTC application and widget called Friend Stream that seamlessly aggregates all of your social communication including Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr into one organised flow of updates. This simple aggregation makes it easier than ever to focus on what friends are doing as well as to view the images and links that they share. In addition to Friend Stream, people can be organised into specific social circles, such as groups of friends, colleagues or any other way that makes sense.

The new HTC Sense experience also introduces broad improvements to applications including the browser, email client and others. In addition, the new version of HTC Sense includes a new newsreader application and widget, as well as a new seven-screen ‘Leap’ thumbnail view for quick and easy access to specific screens.
