HTC unveils new Android phone
Dubai, May 18, 2010
HTC Corporation, a global designer of smartphones, has introduced a new HTC sense-based Android phone that integrates the most popular social networks.
The new HTC Wildfire closely follows the success of the HTC Desire and makes the company’s signature HTC Sense experience accessible to a younger audience.
“Today’s social networks provide an essential forum for friendship with more than 400 million users - many of whom are young adults - actively sharing their lives with their friends through Facebook,” said Florian Seiche, vice president, HTC EMEA.
“HTC Wildfire makes the HTC Sense experience available to young mobile users for the first time. It brings all your communications into one place, whether it’s through Facebook, Twitter, text messages, images or email, ensuring that you are never far away from the conversation and always close to your friends.”
HTC Wildfire helps you stay connected with those who are most important to you through HTC Sense, a user experience focused on putting people at the centre by making phones work in a more simple and natural way, a statement said.
HTC’s Friend Stream application gathers and displays content from social networks like Facebook, Twitter, into one organised stream of updates.
Each contact viewed in HTC Wildfire’s address book includes a thread of recent communications with that person, including when you last spoke, recent text messages and emails, and social network updates.
When your friend calls, HTC caller ID displays their Facebook profile photo and latest update, as well as a reminder if their birthday is fast approaching.
Thanks to a new app sharing widget, HTC Wildfire enables you to recommend an application by email, text message or over social networks. Your friends will receive a link allowing them to find the application on the Android market with a single click and download it to their phone.
Seiche continued: “We understand that people need a better way to navigate their way through the tens of thousands of applications that are currently available on the Android market.”
“In fact, our own independent research found that consumers are not only hungry for the latest and most popular applications that their friends are using, they want an easier way to find and download them.”
HTC’s latest advanced smartphone features a 3.2-inch capacitive touch screen, a five-megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash as well as a 3.5mm audio jack and micro SD card slot.
The new HTC Wildfire will be broadly available to customers across major European and Asian markets from Q3 2010, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
