And now, the Taiwan-based smartphone maker’s super phone is officially available here in the Philippines. Though the launching is not really much of a surprise (we’ve been teased!), what’s more exciting to find out is the phone’s official price.
Seems like HTC won’t break the Php 30K mark, at least with its latest high-end smartphone, as the HTC Sensation got a suggested retail price of Php 31,990. I think my estimate was right that it would still be above Php 30K. There’s a reason though, in fact having tried previous models of HTC handsets like the Desire – you really have this great experience in an Android environment, plus the nifty and unique hardware design, particularly in the outer build. So the price actually speaks for itself.
