HTC is going big in 2012. After introducing their world to their more focused line of One devices, new slimmed down Sense 4.0 software, the Taiwanese manufacturer continues to overhaul their services. Next on HTC’s list? Their cloud service, HTC began sending out emails today, letting users know that they have until April 30th to download all their user data, or be faced with losing it forever, as they transition to an all new cloud service for their customers.

Saved contacts, messages, Footprints and call history will all be wiped clean but customers can download all their data in a handy zip file via Not exactly sure how many users exclusively use HTCSense to back up their data, seeing how Google already backs up most of these items to your Google account. It will be interesting to see what HTC will come up for the all new but if their recent partnership with Dropbox is any indication, users will have plenty of storage for their pics and media if a shiny new HTC device is in their future.

Thanks, Bob!
