HTC SENSE The new HTC Sense experience continues to focus on improving your interactions with your most important people. This begins with a new HTC application and widget called Friend Stream that seamlessly aggregates all of your social communication including Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr into one organised flow of updates. This simple aggregation makes it easier than ever to focus on what friends are doing as well as to view the images and links that they share. In addition to Friend Stream, people can be organised into specific social circles, such as groups of friends, colleagues or any other way that makes sense.
The new HTC Sense experience also introduces broad improvements to applications including the browser, email client and others. In addition, the new version of HTC Sense includes a new newsreader application and widget, as well as a new seven-screen ?Leap? thumbnail view for quick and easy access to specific screens.
Availability and Pricing HTC Legend will be available for $0 upfront on the $49 cap plan, or can be purchased outright for a RRP of $599. It will be available from Vodafone stores and dealers from 3rd June and launch dates to follow soon on 3 mobile.
