Consumers get so used to seeing certain brand names or products offered by familiar companies that often they pay little, if any, attention to any others that are available. In the meantime, some of those lesser-known companies are quietly gaining on their competition and even pulling way ahead.
This is the case with HTC, a Taiwanese cell phone marketing company. By offering models such as the HTC Desire HD phone, they have started giving the iPhone, which was originally designed and marketed by Apple and is now offered by Verizon, a run for its money.
Part of the reason for this may lie in the improvements and upgrades that have been made on the HTC Desire HD phones. The screen has a 4.3 inch display surface and the sound, both regular and surround, are provided by Dolby Mobile and SRS virtual methods. Download time, especially when it comes to maps, has also been improved. Maps are downloaded quickly with all information available, and data roaming fees are not charged. Besides providing the map, the screen also displays directional arrows, making it easier to follow the route. In addition, the icons that show different points of interest such as ATM locations, restaurants, gas stations, and other places are present on the home screen.
Consumers may also enjoy the “find phone” feature that is available with the HTC Desire HD. By going to HTCSense.com, you are given a signal that pinpoints exactly where the phone is. HTCSense.com also allows you to forward calls from your phone to another number, in case for some unknown reason you don’t have it with you. And, as an extra security precaution, logging on to that website allows you to “clean” your phone of any personal data that may be on there, a feature that can be invaluable if your phone is lost or stolen.
