HTC's Sensation XL ships with urBeats headphones

When HTC announced a deal with Beats Electronics, we knew it wouldn't be long before branded smartphones would start hitting the market. First up was the Sensation XE with its 1.5GHz processor.
 
Now we have the Sensation XL which was just announced today. The Sensation XL obviously has Beats Audio integration along with a massive 4.7" display (Engadget says that the screen resolution is still 800x480). The smartphone is 9.9mm thick, features an aluminum body, 16GB of internal storage, 8MP rear camera (f/2.2, 28mm, dual-LED flash) 1600 mAh battery, and packs in a 1.5GHz single-core processor (Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon). The Sensation XL is running Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 3.5 tacked on.
 
The Sensation XL will also ship with a pair of urBeats headphones.

 
“With Beats Audio, the HTC Sensation XL continues HTC’s commitment of delivering the best audio possible on your phone whether you’re listening to music, watching a movie or playing a game,” said HTC CEO Peter Chou. “This is an amazing example of why our partnership with Beats makes so much sense for customers today and into the future.”
 
In other HTC news, the company announced that third quarter revenue jumped 79 percent to $4.4 billion USD while net income rose 68 percent to $612 million USD.

I know they didn't teach reading comprehension in the trailer park, but here is what he said.

Just because they can make a 1024x800 phone screen doesn't mean that there is any point in doing it.


There are very good reasons to increase PPI (smoother fonts, finer details, etc). It is already getting to a point already where >250 PPI displays show finer detail than the printed page. It is a trend that has begun on smartphones and will actually continue on desktops.

On a side note, the holy grail for me will be e-paper at very high PPI. Can't wait.

You are such an angry, silly little man
