HTC Sensation launches, Flyer dated May 9th for UK

HTC officially lifted the lid on its latest smartphone challenger, the Sensation, as it looks to reassert its status as the go-to brand for Android.

Unveiled at a press call-cum-community event yesterday, the Sensation features a Legend-style aluminium unibody construction, a high-res 4.3-inch display and runs the latest 2.3.3 version of Android with the all-new HTC Sense custom skin slathered over the top.

It’s also home to an eight-megapixel snapper capable of shooting full HD video at up to 30fp and a secondary, front-facing VGA camera for video calls.

In keeping with its Android challengers, the Sensation also packs a dual core processor – specifically a 1.2-gigahertz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon number– to keep everything running buttery smooth.

As with all current-gen and forthcoming HTC phones, you’ll get some exclusive apps, too. Among them are the ace Footprints travel application and the spanking new Watch – a video download service with a library of 600 movies and TV shows.

Vodafone and 3 have confirmed they’ll be offering the phone on the day of release.

In other HTC news, the gadget-maker has also confirmed a UK release date for its first-ever tablet computer. The Honeycomb-powered Flyer is dropping on these shores on May 9th and will cost you just shy of £600 when bought sans contract.
