Indeed HTC has always touted its Sense user interface as the signature mark of a smartphone that can dare to call itself the “cadillac of smartphones.” During yesterday’s announcement of the upcoming HTC Desire HD and Desire Z smartphones, the smartphone manufacturer revealed an impressive set of features set to grace the next update to its Sense user interface — which the device maker reportedly referred to as not an operating system overlay, but “a holistic experience filled with moments of delight.”

Such new moments of pure delight will include:

HTCSense.com – A free service on par with Apple’s MobileMe that will offer remote wipe capabilities, wireless backup services for SMS and email messages, and the ability to locate a lost phone. The service will also allow users to remotely forward their calls if they’ve forgotten their phone, and also send their device map coordinates and trip information.

DLNA support – Wirelessly stream video to compatible TVs and monitors, or using HTC’s wireless TV adapter that plugs in through HDMI.

New incoming call screen – Instead of an incoming call notification occupying the entire display, the incoming call screen will partially slide up from the bottom.

Shorter boot time – Devices will boot in 10 seconds, allowing faster access to call and messaging functionality.

Cached map data – Map data is stored on the device, reducing the amount of time required to render maps.

Digital compass – Maps will render in the direction the user is facing.
