HTC Corporation, a global designer of mobile devices, recently unveiled the latest addition to its growing portfolio of devices, exclusive to Vodafone. The HTC Sensation XL with Beats Audio™ integration, bring a richer audio and video experience to customers thanks to the partnership with Beats™ by Dr. Dre. Both handsets work on Vodafone’s new 850MHz network built to give customers a better smartphone experience.


“As a result of our partnership with Beats™ by Dr. Dre, the HTC Sensation XL is poised to take mobile and sound entertainment to a whole new level,” said Ben Hodgson, Country Manager, HTC Australia and New Zealand. “With superior sound quality never before experienced from a smartphone, HTC is pushing the boundaries once again to deliver optimised audio experience to our consumers. These devices are a classic example of sound-meets-design, developed to meet the growing demand for a richer audio and video experience.”

“As the exclusive provider of the latest HTC smartphones with Beats™ by Dr. Dre, we know that customers who are passionate about music are going to love this device,” said Ross Parker, General Manager Devices at Vodafone. “And because the new handsets work on Vodafone’s new 850MHz network, built for smartphones, customers can download tunes faster than before on Vodafone.”

Vodafone is offering the HTC Sensation XL for $5 per month for the handset on Vodafone’s $59 Cap, which similarly provides customers with $750 included value (including international calls), Infinite text, Infinite standard national voice calls to Vodafone-to-Vodafone and Vodafone-to-3, Infinite Social Networking to your favourite social networking sites, plus 2GB of data per month, over 24 months.
