HTC's Beats Audio deal is seeing its first fruits come forth with their Sensation update, the Sensation XE. It's sure to sound great; it even has its own pair of Beats by Dre headphones.

On the inside, it's inherently the same phone as the original Sensation, just a bit better-fied. It's got a new 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor with a 8MP 1080p video camera. Yet they're still skinning with Android with Sense for no necessary reason. And no 4G. But it's gotten a nice black and red facelift. And having Beats under the hood for those optimized headphones certainly makes it stand out. [HTC]

While I wouldn't pay a premium for beats anything, I can see why others do and it's a prime example of good marketing, and not to mention probably the best thing that HP has been involved in recently. Good for HTC to join in, no matter how it looks.
