HTC Ocean Teaser
The video shows a couple using the smartphone and highlighting the phone’s soft touches on the sides of the HTC Ocean. The soft touch on the sides not only adds the flexibility of scrolling the different apps but, also to launch them. With this, the users will no longer have to tap an app to open it.

This is not the first time that HTC Ocean’s promotional video has been leaked, it was done in last September as well. The video highlighted the Sense Touch of the phone. The video also mentioned the quick access to the Play Anything feature of Ocean. From the first video, it was clear that the phone will have intuitive controls. And now, it is confirmed with the current video leak.
Talking about the intuitive controls on the sides, it will be too early to comment on its usability and efficiency. But, it looks inspired from the mechanical scroll that we used to get on the Blackberry smartphones.
