Today AT&T announced the Inspire 4G, which is the first phone in the U.S. to feature the latest Sense UI. This high-end Android phone is AT&T’s version of the Desire HD with support for their 4G HSPA+ network.
HTC also revealed that the Inspire 4G will be the first U.S. phone to feature the latest Sense UI, allowing users to create an account on www.htcsense.com. The new Sense platform can locate a lost phone on a map, send a command to sound an alert on the handset, and remotely wipe the phone’s data with a single command.
The device is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2011 and will ship with Android 2.2. It will be upgradeable to Android 2.3, but AT&T does not have the best track record with software updates so we will wait and see.
From AT&T: The HTC Inspire4G is a stunning, 4.3-inch super LCD smartphone running on Android 2.2 smartphone and the first in North America to feature the next-generation HTC Sense platform with cloud services. The new Sense platform can pinpoint on a map a lost phone, send a command to sound an alert on the handset, and remotely wipe the phone’s data with a single command through http://www.htcsense.com/.
