HTC Sensation clears the FCC, T-Mobile awaits

The HTC PG58100 (more popularly known as the HTC Sensation) has now officially cleared the FCC, it is now ready to go for all of us here in the U.S. According to T-Mobile, it is coming but no date has been revealed other than "summer". So we are still waiting for more details on that. We did get this possible tip that it will be releasing on or around June 8th. We will see.

HTC Marvel coming to T-Mobile after the Sensation and Doubleshot

This is some fresh news from our friends over at TmoNews. According to some recent photo's that have been found, T-Mobile plans to bring a nice mid-range device in the HTC Marvel, better known as the Wildfire S. You can see our hands-on here. It should come looking pretty similar to the Wildfire S, only with T-Mobile branding and the rest of the goodies assuming T-Mobile doesn't become AT&T anytime soon.

Vodafone HTC Sensation pre-orders open ahead of May 19 release

Vodafone UK have begun taking pre-orders for the HTC Sensation, ahead of what's expected to be a May 19 release date for the dual-core Android smartphone. Announced last month, the Sensation will be priced from free with a new, two-year agreement of £35 ($58) per month or above. Your money - and commitment - gets you a 4.3-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and the latest version of HTC Sense with a clever lock-screen that integrates various widgets and app shortcuts. There's also Qualcomm's new dual-core 1.2GHz processor keeping things running, and 1080p HD video capture. The Sensation is expected to launch in the US later in 2011 as the T-Mobile Sensation 4G, but for the moment Vodafone have exclusivity on the handset in Europe. No word on how long that will last for. More details on the HTC Sensation in our hands-on report. [vms a2b4e80506f582af3676]

HTC Sensation 4G pre-interest page goes live

HTC may not be publicly confirming the rumored June 8 release of the HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile USA, but it has thrown up a sign-up page for those wanting more information. The tri-tone smartphone has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, HSPA+ connectivity and a 4.3-inch qHD display. There's also an 8-megapixel camera on the back with autofocus and a dual-LED flash. HTC has reworked the camera app to minimize start-up lag, so that there's less chance of missing impromptu shots. Meanwhile the Sensation will debut HTC Sense 3.0, the latest version of the company's interface, complete with a new homescreen launcher. We've more on the HTC Sensation in our hands-on report from the launch of the European version, identical bar the radios. Meanwhile for all the specs, check out HTC's product page.

June 8 HTC Sensation 4G launch on T-Mobile tipped by advert

The HTC Sensation release date may have been prematurely released by a Google AdWords result and - perhaps a little more tenuously - a screenshot of the HTC Sense 3.0 widgets the company itself has used. TmoNews spotted that the top ad result suggested "HTC Sensation 4G - On 6/8 - Complete w/ HTC Watch & HTC Sense" which certainly implies a June 8 2011 release. Meanwhile, the T-Mobile Sensation 4G press shot shows the HTC weather widget for June 8 too. On its own that probably wouldn't be enough to tip it, but HTC wouldn't be the first manufacturer to theme a press shot to go along with a launch date. The Sensation 4G has a 4.3-inch qHD display, WiFi b/g/n, 8-megapixel main camera and 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. More on the HTC Sensation in our hands-on with the European version from earlier this month.

HTC Sense 3.0 Not coming to older devices, but they will get pieces

Earlier today there was a tweet by a HTC employee that has now made it's rounds throughout all the blogs. He mentioned that legacy devices, even ones like the Desire S and Desire HD will NOT be getting Sense 3.0 due to hardware requirements. You can see that tweet here. That would not be good news for many of you that have just jumped into one of those exciting new phones.

HTC Sensation vs HTC ThunderBolt [DESTRUCTION DERBY]

So you know what you're dealing with when it comes to a total dual-core brawl, but what about HTC's current bigtime winner, the HTC ThunderBolt?
