HTC Sensation 4G free as T-Mobile prepares for Galaxy S III

T-Mobile has a great deal going for their popular HTC Sensation 4G smartphone that you won't want to miss out on. They are offering up the Sensation 4G completely free as a web-only special, but the deal ends on May 3rd.

Virtuous S4X brings ICS and Sense 4.0 to HTC EVO 3D and Sensation

Whatever else they might be, custom ROM developers are speedy. Barely three weeks after the first official ROM for the Endeavor (now officially revealed as the HTC One X) leaked, an industrious group of devs have released a series of ROMs based on the leaked code. The Virtuous S4X series of ROMs isn't the first family of custom ROMs to bring Ice Cream Sandwich to HTC's devices, but it is the first to bring the ubiquitous Sense along for the ride in its fourth incarnation. At present only the GSM version of the HTC EVO 3D and the HTC Sensation are supported, and the ROMs themselves are in beta form and their first release at that - don't expect daily driver performance. Work from the developers includes resizing and recalibrating ROMs to work on qHD (960x540) screens, smaller both physically virtually tan the HTC One X's 720p panel. In the best tradition of custom ROMs, they've also made a few speedy tweaks and removed bloatware that isn't strictly necessary. HTC has committed to bringing Ice Cream Sandwich (and probably Sense 4.0) to both the EVO 3D and the Sensation, but it might be months before the updates materialize. If you can't wait, download the files, reboot into a custom recovery and get crackin'. Both will require a full wipe (even from a stock ROM) so make sure and back up your data with Nandroid. It'll still be a few weeks at the very least before the HTC One X is released, so it'll be a while before the developers can upgrade their source files.

HTC releases preview of ICS for Sensation and Sensation XE

HTC's big dance at Mobile World Congress is just a couple of days away, but it looks like they couldn't resist getting some beta software out beforehand. Like Sony did yesterday, HTC has released its first "preview" build of Ice Cream Sandwich, by way of their Elevate program. The first ROMs are only accessible on the HTC Sensation and the Sensation XE, but include Sense 4.0, the ICS version of HTC's nearly universal Android skin. Elevate members should have already received an invitation to download the software.

White HTC Sensation hits Netherlands with Ice Cream Sandwich on March 1

Oh look, another white version of an existing smartphone. How mildly interesting. But wait, gentle reader: the bonus that comes along with the newest HTC sensation might just make you do a digital double-take. The Taiwanese manufacturer announced today that the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the popular mid-range smartphone would be releasing soon, but the special white version of the Sensation will (as far as we know) be the first HTC device to ship with Android 4.0. At the moment the launch of the white Sensation is only confirmed for the Netherlands. HTC will update to ICS for current owners of the Sensation, Sensation XE and Sensation XL around the same time.

HTC Sensation Android 4.0 ROM Leaks, teases Sense UI on ICS

While developers have been going crazy porting and working on ROM's for all devices to get a taste of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich today we have something even better. This appears to be a full Android 4.0 ROM for the Sensation XE that was leaked to the public. Developers have already ported this to the regular HTC Sensation and it seems to be working great. This also gives us our first glace at what to expect with HTC's Sense UI on Ice Cream Sandwich -- more of the same sadly.
