HTC announced their new portal for Android phones last month, and today it's up and fully functional, bringing remote contact backup, phone wipe, ringing and GPS location to new HTC phones.
The site is only available to users of the HTC Desire HD or Desire Z — neither of which are currently available in the US or Australia — but if you're willing to flash one of the many leaked Desire HD ROMs to your Incredible, Desire or EVO, then you can take advantage of the site too. It's also a pretty convincing reason to get the Desire HD or Desire Z when they come out. No longer will you need to roll your own find-my-phone feature; you get pretty good out-of-the-box treatment from HTC's site.
Along with all the remote backup and wipe features, you can also reroute text messages and calls to a separate number, mark apps for installation on your phone from the site, and remote install custom themes and skins from HTC. We're pretty impressed by HTC's endeavor, and hope that other manufacturers follow suit — and that HTC brings this to a few older phones so we don't have to settle for the leaked HD ROM.
