HTC Sense Will Support Map Pre-Caching In Its Latest Upgrade

Yesterday, Engadget got some hands-on time with the brand new HTC Sense upgrade that will debut on the Desire HD and the Desire Z. It will support all kinds of crazy stuff we've been waiting for like remote wiping, phone location, and backing up to and restoring data from HTCSense.com. Another cool feature is map pre-caching, which means that the phone will have pre-loaded maps on it.

The end result is a much more responsive map experience, allowing you to zoom in and out and pan around with "no waiting".

HTC To Update Sense, Also Introduces Remote Wiping And Location Services Via HTCSense.com - But Can Sense Remain Relevant?

Along with the announcement of the less patriotic versions of the EVO 4G and G2, HTC informed attendees of their London press event today that the Sense UI overlay would be receiving an update - in addition to new cloud services through HTCSense.com.

What kind of new goodies does the updated Sense have in store? We'll break down what we've got so far:

  • Completely new video/photo capture, edit, upload, and share system
  • New video/photo capture effects/distortions
  • Offline maps
  • Car app
  • Updated e-mail app
  • Probably a lot more updates to integrated Sense apps like Friend Stream

The Latest In The World Of Android Hacks: Jailbreaking A PS3 With A Nexus One

Update: All good things must one day come to an end, and alas, it looks like Sony's just decided to issue a mandatory update to all PS3s that breaks this jailbreak method. Heartbreaking, I know.

If Sony's PS3 gaming system took a step backward in functionality when Sony disabled its ability to install Linux, it's just taken two steps forward again.

t4nav, a Senior Member of xda-developers, has just discovered a method to hack the PS3 using a Nexus One or a Desire!

HTC Desire HD Caught On Video, Looks Even Sexier Than The EVO?

In case a blurry picture and some unconfirmed specs weren’t enough for you, the Desire HD has already gotten a high quality video leak to call its own, and with it confirmation of all the great specs. While they certainly aren’t anything shocking, it serves to show us that the Desire HD is really pretty much a GSM EVO – but that doesn’t make it less impressive.

  • 1 GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash
  • 4.3” WVGA screen
  • 720p recording
  • Android 2.2 with Sense
  • Front-facing camera

The only notable difference I can see between the EVO and Desire HD (besides the lack of a 4G radio in the latter) is the HD’s brushed aluminum body, which looks much nicer than the EVO, in my opinion.
