HTCsense.com has gone live today for Desire HD and Desire Z Android phones, offering buyers the chance to take control their handsets remotely wherever they are.
Unveiled at the press call for the forthcoming phones last month, the site allows users to customise their phone even when it’s not in their hands. The handsets can also be wiped of sensitive data and switched off, while the GPS functionality can be harnessed to locate sticky fingered thieves in the event that they fall victim to theft.
Content can also be sent directly to the phone, such as videos, music and mapping directions.
Alas, the soon-to-come additions to the Desire family of Android phones are the only handsets currently supported by the full service. However, owners of the likes of the HTC Magic and current-gen Desire can still register with the site and grab free wallpapers.
Running Android 2.2, AKA Froyo, out of the box, the Desire HD goes on sale later this month and improves on its predecessor with the inclusion of an eight-megapixel camera with HD video recording, and a larger 4.3-inch touchscreen display.
