HTC Admits To Too Much Bloat In Previous Version Of Sense, Focusing More On Product

Nvidia and HTC were definitely the must see companies at Mobile World Congress and the companies with the most buzz before MWC kicked off on Monday morning in Barcelona.

HTC released their three new “One Series” Android smartphones, as well as the new HTC Sense 4.0. HTC has admitted that the previous version of Sense had too much bloat. In speaking with UK based pocket-now at Mobile World Congress, HTC’s Chief Product Officer Kouji Kodera admitted that Sense 3.0 was more bloated than they would have liked. Kodera said;

“There where too many things in there. Even on the home screen we had four or five icons before consumers got a chance to add things themselves. For the HTC One range we have taken it down to Sense 2.0 again.”

Kodera also echoed thoughts that CEO Peter Chou had said earlier in the year, in that HTC would now be focusing on quality over quantity in 2012. There’s no indication that the One Series are the only phones that thy are doing this year, however we expect top caliber phones in each category, which is what the One line demonstrates.

The new HTC One X is headed to AT&T in the coming months, for use on their 4G/LTE network. The HTC One S will arrive at T-Mobile USA around the same time. The top of the line mid-range, HTC One V will arrive at MetroPCS, Virgin Mobile and US Cellular, later this Spring.
