htc sensation 4g android ginger breadPCworld were lucky enough to get a hands-on demo with HTC yesterday. The phone they were playing with was the imminent dual-core Android smart phone, the HTC Sensation 4G (also known as the Pyramid.) So.. uh.. was it sensational?

Firstly, it has a dual core Qualcomm processor, and runs Gingerbread (Android 2.3). So it’s powerful.

Display-wise, it has a 4.3 inch screen, running at a resolution of 960 x 540. It’s 16:9, which means the phone fits better in one’s hand. It also has a new version of HTC’s Sense UI. This has quite a nice feature: you select your 4 most favourite apps, which then appear in the lock screen. To unlock the phone you slide your finger to the app, which will then open upon releasing the pressure. This is a nice innovation, since the iPhone’s unlocking mechanism is not nearly as efficient.

It’s got an 8 megapixel camera, as well as a front facing webcam.

Available: May 2011. Price as yet unknown.
