And no wonder its launched only in china where people more easily buy into eccentric gadgets, and even there it will fail. I expect to see this in many asian countries but i doubt many stores will take the chance on having a stock of these, for example in philippines i doubt we will see more than dummies in the stores. This smell failure from a long distance, but that way it is match with other HTC products, its normal then.

No , Htc is still a healthy manufacturer , but i guess this thing is one of the side effects of their longtime serious disease , thats FRONT CAMERA - PHOBIA . Yeah thats right they heck of a phone and them totally missout a secondary camera and now they have gone retard by making a 5 inch remote for a 5 inch phone.. (dont tell me about their high end(costly) phones cos that market is mostly reserved to apple , sam ,sony , bb and nokia) and even they put one it works like bullsh!t

I would suggest HTC to introduce a bracelet with these capabilities not another phone which is very useless. Now OLED is quite old, its not hard to introduce a bracelet with OLED screen that can be bend and light in weight which can easily replace your wrist watch.

Anyways I will never ever spend money on this if i have already any expensive phone and i am not enjoying its touch interface. HTC please grow up!!!

Waiting for Sensation XE JB release...

So let me get this right. You hold your phone on one hand, and to do something you activate it with the remote from the other hand? Blimey, what an ingenious idea! Give the man an award.

I thought ASUS has done same thing before with Memopad and Padphone where you get a remote/stylus that can be used as bluetooth earphone and remote control..
