Vodafone has begun taking pre-orders for the latest addition to HTC’s range of Android phones, the Sensation.
The carrier is offering the phone for free from £35 per month when buyers sign up to a 24-month contract. That deal includes monthly allowances of 900 minutes, 750Mb of data and unlimited SMS messages.
According to Voda’s site, orders processed today will be despatched on May 19th.
The media-focussed Sensation’s key selling point for committed tech types is the fact that it houses a 1.2GHz dual core processor, which combines with the latest Gingerbread version of Android, to deliver a super snappy smartphone experience.
Elsewhere the smartie is home to an eight-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and face detection, plus a secondary 1.2-megapixel snapper for video calling.
The 16:9 widescreen, Super LCD display comes in at a capacious 4.3-inches and is optimised for enjoying movies streamed via the all-new HTC Watch service, which comes pre-installed.
Vodafone will be the sole UK carrier selling the phone for a month after it officially lands in mid-May. After that point, it’s set to go on sale on T-Mobile, Orange and 3.
