I've just received word from a very reliable source that the mega-cute HTC Explorer is already set to hit store shelves in the Philippines by Holiday Season this year or even earlier!
I believe HTC will be releasing the ultra-afforable HTC Explorer to give entry-level users a chance to experience how the Taiwanese company does an Android phone -- and that is with stunning hardware and with smart HTC Sense user interface that will have you asking, "Why hasn't anyone thought of that before?!" as soon as you experience it.
Given its technical specifications (shown below) and its target market, I'm inclined to believe that this phone will have a price tag far less than Php 10,000. My guesstimate is around Php 6,000 to 7,000 -- and at that amount, it could very well go head to head with Samsung Galaxy Y once it lands.

Considering that the two HTC supersmartphones almost look identical (with XE having red color accents here and there), I guess it's but natural for people to ask "How exactly is HTC Sensation XE different from HTC Sensation?"
Well, in answering this question, it's imperative that we stick to facts (that's how we do it here in TP), so the first thing we have to do is to check out this specs comparison table:
I'd say HTC Sensation and HTC Sensation XE are different in two ways:
1. They have slightly different specifications.
2. They have totally different music playback capabilities.
And in both departments, HTC Sensation XE is better.
Looking at the table above, it's clear that although the phones share largely the same powerhouse technical specifications, HTC Sensation XE nonetheless has a faster processor for smoother performance and a larger battery, delivering longer uptime. Having specs that could beat even HTC Sensation's innards means that HTC Sensation XE could very well be the most powerful dual core Android smartphone out in the market today -- giving even Samsung Galaxy S2 a run for its money.
What's not shown in the table, however, is HTC Sensation XE's music playing prowess. HTC Sensation XE is perhaps the first product of HTC's $300 Million investment into Beats by Dr. Dre, giving the Taiwanese company a majority control of the music device manufacturer's software and hardware releases. As such, HTC Sensation XE comes replete with with Beats audio software improvement and Beats Headset accessory -- making it a terrifying mobile music device.
So which HTC supersmartphone to get? If you're not fond of carrying your music every where you go and you're not really power-user, then get HTC Sensation and save a few thousand bucks. But if you want to get the latest and greatest and music playback is important to you (and you're a big fan of Beats by Dr. Dre), by all means, get HTC Sensation XE. Anyway, both are great phones.
