Powerful, new Android delivers superior mobile experience with customizable user interface and remote access features
TORONTO, May 17 /CNW/ - Mobilicity today announced the HTC Panache™, a
sleek, new 2.3 Android™ smartphone that combines speed, style and
sophistication for a superior mobile experience.
The Panache is capable of operating at 4G speeds of up to 21mps and can
easily be turned into a Wi-Fi™ hotspot or tethered to a tablet or iPad
with Mobilicity's unlimited data add-on. Mobilicity customers can add
unlimited data to any voice plan for only $10 - making it possible to
get unlimited talk, text and data for as low as $35 a month.
More flexible and advanced than most smartphones, the Panache packs a
host of unique features, based on the HTC Sense™ user interface, which
allows users to:
customize the home screen with regularly used software, contacts and
create different user profiles for business and personal use;
juggle multiple email accounts with colour-coding and email filters to
keep better track of all their information;
stream contacts' social network status and updates alongside their
photos when they call or text; and
instantly silence the phone ringer, when required, with a quick flip of
Users can also benefit from being able to manage their mobile phone
content from their personal computer. In the event that the phone is
lost or stolen, users can remotely lock the phone, forward calls and
texts to another phone, and even delete all personal data. The ability
to access archived mobile content, including contacts, text messages
and call history, is also possible with the Panache.
The Panache features a Qualcomm 1GHz Snapdragon™ processor and a large
3.8-inch touch screen for excellent navigation and an exceptional
visual experience. It also provides handy built-in tools, like GPS,
Adobe® Flash® Player, HD video recording, a 5 megapixel flash camera,
and VGA front-facing video-chat camera to make it easier to capture,
create, share and access multimedia content.
The HTC Panache ($499.99) will be available tomorrow at Mobilicity
stores and authorized dealers across Canada and mobilicity.ca. It is
exclusive to Mobilicity in Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary.
Like all Mobilicity devices, the HTC Panache is not sold with a handset
tab, credit check, nor does it come with a contract to lock a customer
into a multi-year service plan with expensive cancellation penalties,
as is often the case with Canada's incumbent carriers.
