Oh my goodness, if only I had just waited another 2 months, I coulda gotten the HTC desire HD!!!
LOL an ogre with an accent.
Now I'm really torn, I like the Desire HD and the Z, but I was looking at moving to the Motorola Defy as I wanted something a little more robust. Choices choices.
HTCSense.com sounds good....
Wow those are some very nice updates.
And I still don't trust that Z-hinge
i think one of the best feature from here is the ability to store maps on SD card so if anyone travels abroad could use it without any roaming data charges. just really wonder how it would be implemented and who would supply maps or just would store it as a region or country? hmm.. sounds really interesting
The only thing I miss from my current Desire is Quad Band 3G. I don't understand why HTC don't make a version that supports all frequencies for worldwide use.
New sense will come in a near future upgrade to complete the full Desire range placement
Wow, I don't suggest the Defy or any other Motoblur devices.
I think the question wasn't about the new sense overlay to come to Desire (though I certainly hope it will), but would Desire users be able to use HTCSense.com cloud service?
Anyone in the know, plz... (I'm considering dearly to get Desire instead of these new products)
i heard that there might be a fee to pay to use the service though
Hmm... guess not from what I've heard...
HTC Sense.com: remote services for HTC Desire HD and HTC Desire Z | Electricpig
read the last line...
Anyway, this is perfectly makes sense of what HTC would do, how else would they fight the Apple giant AND gain tremendeous fanboy-ism loyalty?
By making their cloud service to be free would ensure most of their current users to loyally join in their next product line whenever it arrives.
With the ease of use to sync contacts from this phone to the next one, that alone would have convinced most to stay with the brand.
I'd imagined Steve Jobs would be pissed and add another clause to their patent breach law process. (their same service -MobileMe- is a paid service)
IMO htcsense.com just highlights what Google should be doing with stock Android but isn't. It would be so much more streamlined and convenient if these extra cloud services were simply a part of the existing Google cloud service we already enjoy, and would also ensure older devices get the same treatment. Something for Gingerbread perhaps?
Thanks for this...but...
I'm sorry to ask this, but I'd like to understand and be certain - are you saying that the upgrades to HTC Sense will be become available in the near future to standard HTC Desire owners (not Z, not HD - just a plain 'old' Desire!!)?
Do you know when, and do you know for sure?
These updates - FroYo, new HTC Sense, etc - it feels like an upgrade every time it happens - I love it! And I love my Desire..!!! (a bit sad I know...)
dang then that's pretty good then. just hope that it's compatible with the regular desire (i'd be surprise if it's not)
All I know is new sense is designed for the ENTIRE Desire range. As to when, is up to HTC, and then your sp to provide it in a update.
Doubt we'll get it officially, why would HTC release 2 new phones and then just upgrade the old ones?
Not good business sense if you ask me...
well it is when the Desire is a third option; if you don't want a keyboard or a large screen then the existing Desire is the one for you.
If htc opt NOT to update our version of Sense then they've effectively written it off. It makes much more sense to have all three Desire phones running 2.2 and the new version of Sense UI
The ONLY issue I see is that in order to store maps you'll need an SD card, whereas the two new Desire variants have on board memory.
You have to log on to the website, I guess that getting a log on is part of the set up process on the new phones? We won't get access until HTC update our version of Sense (and we don't know for sure that's happening)
Sorry Guys, 3 threads all on the same thing. I hope you don't mind but I have merged them.
of course HTC won't release this for the Desire just yet. if they did, they'd never sell any HD or Z models.
it might come but it could take time...
I saw some speculation as to whether the HTC Desire would be getting the new Sense found on the new HTC phones. Was any information found?
Also, will we be able to use HTCSense.com?
is this service up and running yet for the desire ?
when i go to the page it asks for password , but seems no way to create an account
Oh god I hope this isn't going to be another Motoblur.
