Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

HTC officially unveiled the Sensation XL today, the manufacturer's second smartphone to be equipped with Beats Audio.

HTC Sensation XL

The HTC Sensation XL is large and narrow, with a 4.7in, 400 x 800 display and a 9.9mm-thick body. It runs on a 1.5GHz processor with 768MB of Ram. It sports Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread spruced up with the company's latest Sense UI.

There's a storage capacity of 16GB, with a Micro SD slot to extend that even further. It has 8Mp rear-facing and 1.3Mp front-facing cameras.

But it's all about the Beats Audio here and just like its smaller brother, the HTC Sensation XE, the XL comes with Dr Dre's audio enhancements and some UrBeats headphones, said to be worth £80.

The HTC Sensation XL hits shelves in November. Pricing has yet to be announced, although network operator Three has already confirmed it will offer the device, promising its availability soon. ®
