HTC Sensation XL released outside of the US
Today, at an HTC special event, the HTC Sensation XL was announced.
It seems that we got all of the Sensation's specs right. It's got a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480. Driving that display, like we said yesterday, is a 1.5GHz single-core processor, which also helps to drive HTC's integrated Beats Audio technology.
Unfortunately, one thing that we didn't get right was the US availability. HTC said that the Sensation XL will not be headed to the US; in fact, neither of the two Beats-equipped HTC phones will ever be headed to the United States. HTC's Jeff Gordon said that, while they want to bring Beats devices "worldwide … We have a different roadmap for the US."
Thank goodness there are ways to import devices from other areas of the world.[PC Mag]
