HTC Desire HD and Z online HTC Sense portal goes live

Handset tracking and remote access added to Sense UI

New Sense UI to pack online remote access features

The online component to the latest version of HTC Sense, the Taiwanese company's user interface for Google Android powered smartphones, has been set live to accept registrations for the service at HTCSense.com.

Officially unveiled at HTC's London-based press conference last month alongside the forthcoming HTC Desire HD and HTC Desire Z handsets, the latest version of the Sense UI will allow users to remotely access content stored on their devices via the internet service.

The new Sense UI and its online components, currently limited to the new Desire Z and Desire HD handsets, the latter of which is to officially launch next week on October 14th, will also allow users who have lost or had their handsets stolen to remotely locate and wipe the device, send content including mapping directions direct to the phone and download new, exclusive content.

Whilst any HTC user can now register themselves at HTCSense.com to activate their warranty and access free wallpapers and other exclusive downloadable content, a fully supported handset is required to utilise the tracking and remote access features on offer.
