HTC Watch and Bell Mobile TV
HTC Watch is an all new mobile video service allowing customers to rent or buy blockbuster movies when connected to Wi-Fi. HTC Watch quickly buffers videos so users can begin viewing without having to wait for the whole file to completely download. And with its 4.3" qHD cinematic display, the HTC Sensation 4G delivers a truly immersive viewing experience.
Proving a huge hit over the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Bell Mobile TV service, now featuring expanded content from Bell Media including simultaneous broadcast of CTV News Channel, TSN, RDS and other top brands in Canadian news, sports and entertainment, delivers live and on-demand access to some of the most popular programming available on mobile. Alongside an industry leading sports line-up including major league hockey, football, cricket and soccer, Bell Mobile TV also offers content from the Comedy Network, CBC Newsworld, YTV, Treehouse and much more.
The latest HTC Sense experience
The HTC Sensation 4G is HTC’s first mobile device to include the newly revamped, user friendly HTC Sense for an exceptionally customizable experience. In addition to HTC Watch, newly added features include ’active lockscreen’ which allows customization of the lockscreens with up to the minute social updates, weather or stock feeds. Active lockscreen also contains customizable shortcuts to favorite apps for quick access.
Equipped with a 1.2Mhz dual-core processor, customers will enjoy a fast and smooth experience when running apps, playing games, multitasking or simply navigating the HTC Sensation 4G. And 4G speeds up to 14.4 Mbps means better browsing and the ability to download apps and attachments in moments.
The HTC Sensation 4G superphone is also Bell’s first device that allows customers to record and playback video in stunning 1080p full HD to a TV via MHL/HDMI cable or wirelessly with DLNA. And watching video on the HTC Sensation 4G will be vibrant and sharp thanks to its 4.3" qHD display with true widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio.
Other impressive specs include an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, auto-focus and face detection software, built-in dual-microphones for noise cancellation and tri-band HSDPA support (850/1900/2100) for high-speed data access globally.
