Portal Launches, Complements Your HTC Device

HTC has spiced up its Android handset offering by adding that sexy Sense UI, but not it’s going a little further with The new site is a little portal that works sort of like MobileMe for your iPhone. HTC users can now register for the service and get all the benefits from the new service.

What can you do with the site? Here’s a quick list for you:

  • Lost your phone? Go to and use it to make your phone ring… loudly… even it’s set to vibrate. Hopefully it’s nearby – buried in the sofa or under a stack of papers. Sorted. Another option is to use to locate your phone and see where it is on the map – literally. And in the worst case – if you see that your phone is someplace that it definitely should not be (like the train tracks headed out of town), use to lock it and erase all the personal data from it. Sorted!
  • holds on to all the text messages you send or receive. That way, you can go back in time to easily find that special message.
  • makes it easier than ever to add pics from your computer for all the friends on your phone. And of course, you can add new friends and their details to your phone via your computer, as well.
  • Keeping track of what you’ve done and where you’ve been – plus adding what you’d like to go and see – is easy on with Footprints. Use the integrated Google Maps and your computer to create Footprints of the cool spots you want to see.
  • You will find a large selection of HTC tested and reviewed apps that you can install with confideeeeence! So come on down and try it out!
  • gives you a handy way to recommend apps you’ve tried and think others will appreciate. You also see what your friends suggest you try.
  • Choose from hundreds of cool wallpapers and a wide selection of sound-sets, scenes and useful (and sometimes just fun) widgets. Want to update your style? Return to and change your phone’s personality as often as you like.

That’s a pretty nifty feature set if you ask me. Unfortunately, you’ll have to exercise a little patience, too. Right now, the only devices supported are the Desire HD and Desire Z. We’ll keep you posted on updates and additional handsets!

    I got it working on my HD2 w/Desire!

    I’m sort of worried about the privacy issues of having them store all your messages you ever got on their own servers in databases linked to their website. I can’t seem to find anything that says you can turn this feature off either. I’m expecting a pretty entertaining shitstorm over privacy issues here.
