HTC Posts HTC Sensation Sign Up Page

 

Looking to find more information on the HTC Sensation? Look no further than HTC itself as they recently posted a sign up page to “found out more” regarding the HTC Sensation. As usual you’ll likely find out official news and none of the rumors you’ll find on sites like TmoNews. However, you never know what HTC might do with those who signed up for information. Hit the link below to register!

P.S. That June 8th release date rumor we posted about yesterday? We promised to do a little more digging and yeah, we’re pretty confident that’s the current release date for the US. Of course all dates are subject to change but for the moment it’s a day to circle on the calendar.

    I can’t wait for this phone to come out… this is by far the BEST phone TMO has ever released!

    I want this phone SO bad….just need to figure out what to do with my myTouch 4g lol…I’m sorry kid, I love you & all…but ya gotta go *shrugs*

  • Brasilpower

    This one will kicked g2x ass…lol

    • Oreo

      Can I have your evidence of how it kick’s “G2x ass”? I personally would pick the G2x over the locked bootloader of the HTC Sensation. Also before someone tries to bash me I’m going off HTC latest for T-mobile (G2, MT4G). I have no idea if its locked, but if so I’ma enjoy easy rooting of my G2x. BTW love this phone(G2x), I would have waited for the sensation, but My G1 died three weeks ago and I dislike flip phone’s. LOL

        Yea, I like to have DEV support on my devices. Cyanogen and a couple other DEVS already said they will not be supporting this device due to the locked bootloader. I don’t like Sense and I don’t like waiting for updates held back due to custom UI’s.

        • Anonymous

          What Cyanogen actually said was “we’re gonna support the G2X. not sure about sensation yet because of the signed boot crap” unless you’re talking about something else?

      • Anonymous

        What difference does a locked bootloader make to you? The Thunderbolt’s locked bootloader was unlocked in a matter of days. Hardly an issue that should affect a purchasing decision.

  • http://twitter.com/NuoTang Nuo Tang

    This phone looks so much better than the G2x. I’ll let my upgrade wait a few months. June 8th can’t come soon enough. But what’s up w/ it only having 4gb internal memory and only 1gb usable? Yeah i know i can get another 32gb but still, kinda lame.

    Also looks like this phone can’t work on ATT if ATT takes over Tmo. But G2x looks like it can based on specs.

    • J Schu81

      I’ve been out of contract since December waiting for “the” phone. I think this may be it for me too.

      • http://twitter.com/NuoTang Nuo Tang

        Nov for me. Been waiting for “THE” phone that will have netflix and dual core. Here’s to hoping Netflix will be available on this chipset too.

        • Carlf

          I think Netflix has an exclusive partnership, and it’s not with Tmo.

        • http://twitter.com/NuoTang Nuo Tang

          Well from what Netflix said before, certainly taking it w/ a grain of salt, the problem was the CPUs that Android phones use, not partner ships w/ the iphone or ipad on mobile devices. They were concerned w/ security or piracy or DRM.

        • mmeyer4663

          Man! How did Block Buster do it on the HD2?
          If I can stream my Sling adapter on my Dish box over 3G, why the heck would I be able to stream Netflix (video quality, not security)?

  • Andrew

    I really want this phone but if I buy this phone ill be able to use it for a few months then tmobile might be gone the I well have to use it on att crapy network

    • jarjon76

      The merger has to be approved, which will take at least a year. If it is approved, it will take at least another 1-2 years for AT&T to convert T-Mobile customers to AT&T. It’s perfectly safe to upgrade your T-Mobile contract without fear of having a phone that you can’t use in a year. If you want this phone, by all means, get it. It’s a beast of a phone.

      • TheDarkKnight

        I don’t think people realize how far away the merger really is if it even gets approved. Something else that people don’t realize is if your under a two year contract AT&T has to honor that same price for the whole two years. Simple as that.
        And just so everyone knows, AT&T’s coverage is much better so you would actually be getting a good deal.

        • jarjon76

          I agree, except I wonder how improved the coverage will be. AT&T may have better coverage than T-Mobile at the moment, but I wonder if they can handle a mass addition of people on their network (assuming they move quickly to rid themselves of people using T-Mobile bands)? We’ve seen how they have handled the mass iphone stress on their network.

        • Mopar6464

          That’s why i believe they will convert the T-Mobile towers to AT&T specs ASAP once the BUYOUT is complete.
          So you better get a compatible phone that works with T-Mobile and AT&T 3G specs if your going to upgrade a new 2 year contract right now.

        • http://twitter.com/mrmiddl75 david middlebrooks

          ATT is currently in the process of moving all the control channels from the 1900Mhz band. don’t know if theyre moving them to the 850Mhz, or maybe something else since they still have unused spectrum and will gain some if the deal goes through.
          They notified us at the begining of the year that they would be shutting it down using a timetable for each market. each month it will be taken offline starting from the low volume markets to the high.I currently have to upgrade customers from tri-band (900,1800,1900) equipment to quad band (850, 900, 1800,1900) in order to stay compatible.

        • jarjon76

          You’re really stuck on the word BUYOUT. Anyway, I agree people need to make sure their next T-Mobile phone will work on AT&T 3G bands.

        • Mopar6464

          Cant help it , some people have a problem with what a buyout and merger really means.
          They are not merging together , AT&T will own T-Mobile after it’s all said and done and they don’t care about T-Mobiles business policies afterwards.

        • jarjon76

          I agree, except I wonder how improved the coverage will be.

We’ve seen how they have handled the mass iphone stress on their network.

        • Mopar6464

          AT&T has to honor a T-Mobile contract but that does’nt mean they can’t reassign the towers to their specs and expand their service.
          The worst they would have to do is give T-Mobile customers compatable phones for their service , and it’s won’t be their top of the line phones either.
          It may be a year away before it’s complete but once the green light is on that phone could be paperweight.
          Nobody really knows until it happens.

      • TonyJohns

        Incorrect, AT&T clearly stated that once the merger is approved. Changes to the network will be expected in as little as 9 months.

        • jarjon76

          I doubt they would be able to convert everyone in 9 months. They may start the process within that time frame, but they won’t be able to get rid of T-Mobile in that short time.

        • TonyJohns

          True, I wouldn’t expect at the flip of a switch, every T-Mobile user would be flipped over. But 9 months after the merger is approved, some users will start to experience it. Meaning, some users will have a phone that won’t have 3G services the full two years of their contract. The phone will still work, and they will still be able to use it, just now on the ATT 2G band.

        • jarjon76

          Yes, that will probably happen. I’m expecting AT&T to drop the ball on the transition, much like they did with Cingular customers. That’s one of the reasons I’m against this merger/buyout/whatever people want to call it.

      • Mopar6464

        IT’s not a Merger , it’s a BUYOUT.
        So after AT&T buys T-Mobile they can do as they please right away.
        They already stated their limited in capacity and want T-Mobile’s towers to quickly build and expand their service and LTE.
        So what makes you think they will be nice and prolong what T-Mobile customers beg for once they take over.
        We’ll see.

        • jarjon76

          No, it’s a merger. Doesn’t matter what you want to call it, AT&T won’t suddenly flip the switch off T-Mobile’s phones.

        • Mopar6464

          No it’s not.
          Once AT&T buys T-Mobile they will do do what hey want with it.
          Therefor it’s a buyout and they have total controll of the towers and contracted customers.

  • Thereugo67

    I just hope the battery life is good on this beast.

  • Petey

    As some folks below already had mention it… I want this phone (i haven’t tried HTC for a while so it would be a nice experience if I get this one) Yet, I don’t want to renew my contract knowing that the merger is approved.

    • Going_home

      Its reported over on XDA that it will only do 2G on AT&T after unlocking it.

    • http://twitter.com/NuoTang Nuo Tang

      I saw the same, but you know what? get the phone based on the phone not what mergers will happen. Yeah life sucks and unexpected things happen. If the FCC or something else doesn’t let the merger happen, you’ve wasted the opportunity on a great phone.

      So for me, I’m in.

  • Going_home

    Already signed up for this yesterday or the day before.
    I may end up returning the G2X if they dont do an OTA update to fix the poor reception.
    I have no problem with the MyTouch 4G or the Galaxy S 4G in the same areas but
    TMO offered no explanation or help other than to have me install a new sim.

    :(

    • ATL Guy

      Big shocker that tmo didnt offer much help. Wait they didnt tell you to simply do a factory reset?

  • http://twitter.com/jbjtkbw00 jbjtkbw00

    Originally, I was waiting for this phone. I read about the G2X and said I’ll just get both. After 48 hours of heavy usage on the G2X, I’m returning it tomorrow and will just wait for this one. Really disappointed and I think I’m going to try and stick with HTC from now on.

    And no, it’s not the Vanilla android that’s the problem. I think I just really got a buggy device and that’s a downer to me. I’ve never had something this buggy from the onset and I’m an early adopter. Had to get one out of the bunch I guess.

    Live and learn. Bring on the Sensation!

    • Going_home

      I’m hearing battery reception and also random rebooting problems, and also poor reception issues.
      I’m not jumping as fast as you though. I like the phone and I’m hoping TMO will push a fast fix out OTA.
      I can tell you I wont let the 14 day buyers remorse period pass though.
      If nothings happened by then mines going back too.
      :(

      • http://twitter.com/jbjtkbw00 jbjtkbw00

        Man, I put mine through the paces. I go through like a phone a quarter and this one was just subpar to me. Maybe I had way higher expectations and after seeing that HTC Sensation chart comparing it to 6 other phones including the G2X, I wanted to root for the underdog. I mean, the ONE THING it did that makes me want to keep it is that I don’t have to say last name, first name in my car using the bluetooth and dialing a number. It only happens with HTC phones. I believe that’s the Sense, but it’s annoying and this phone didn’t do that.

        I have to send mine back because I ordered on the web, so I don’t have a ton of time and I want to make sure I make the deadline before I’m stuck. I sooooooo wanted this phone to be more than it is, but other than the bluetooth calling (cause the bluetooth itself was buggy) and the nice 4″ screen, not much more to like over my MT4G. Yeah, I’m going back home…..until the big boss lands on June 8th that is. I’m hoping they polish their device a little bit more however.

    I have great reception with the G2X, battery life is not bad at all and the only thing I’m pissed about is the AT&T radio bands. If this device won’t work on AT&T then I don’t know, might just send it packing. Don’t like to be sold something and it isn’t what they said it was. T-Mobile knew damn well many, many customers including every main website thought this device would work on AT&T 3G. They have yet to address this issue, that is why I’m pissed off. It is a great phone, I own 4 potential paper weights, I won’t buy another. I will stick with my rooted N1 until I buy a different unlocked phone that will work on both carriers radios.

    • ATL Guy

      Why should Tmobile put out a phone that should work for sure on ATT when this merger hasn’t even been approved?
      That would be a stupid business decision on their part.
      How did they sell you something that isnt what they said it was?
      Maybe people should try some personal responsibility instead of hoping a company bails them out or holds their hand.

      • Now_onTMO

        As far as i know this was announced by ATT that upcoming phones on TMO will work with att bands, so whether the merge comes to fruition or not the phones will work on both networks, it was in the news somewhere.. and this g2x as i read before that it will support att bands as well.. quadband?

        • http://twitter.com/NuoTang Nuo Tang

          When did att announce that? Can you provide a link? I think you’re mistaken that ATT said when they re-purpose the Tmobile frequencies, customers with phones that no longer work will receive some type of deal for new phones that would work on ATT.

          looking at the specs published so far, the phone is a quad band phone for 2G, but not a quad band 3G HSDPA phone. It seems to be missing the all important 1900mhz band that ATT uses.

      The G2X will work just fine on AT&T, just so you know. It has the same frequency bands that at&t uses along with what tmobile uses. just look at the specs here. http://www.phonearena.com/phones/T-Mobile-G2x_id5272 this shows that they cover the right bands. it even covers Europe and Asia too. look at this reference http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UMTS_frequency_bands.

      All they have to do is make it a firmware update if the deal goes through. Is that not possible? It isn’t like they had to turn it on right now. From what I read on XDA, it isn’t the case. Unlocked G2x phones with ATT sim cards get 2g, no 3g.

      • Mopar6464

        NO , the phone is what it is.
        T-Mobile 3G radio only.

  • Anonymous

    Now that we’re learning the G2x didn’t have ATT 3g or Euro 3g bands after all, is there any reason to think this device will? If it truly does, I’m interested. If not, why should I be?

    I called TMO today and they confirmed that the G2X only has TMO 3g bands. They couldn’t tell me what the Sensation has.

    and to those who ask why TMO should equip a phone with ATT 3g. You do realize that TMO sells a Nokia pentaband smartphone….right? This is an unusual situation. The company is being sold to another with a different 3g band. Why should they equip new powerful smartphones with ATT3g? Because it’s good form, good business.

    TMO could have corrected all the bad information flying around the blogosphere about this issue, but kept quiet. Their own published specs were (I believe) contrived in a manner to deceive people into feeling a sense of confidence about purchasing a new smartphone with this impending sale. I don’t know why they would have thought they could sell these otherwise.

        Don’t see any AT&T 3G bands list on HTC.com either.

          ^That’s for the Sensation specs.

          is that because it’s an LG phone and not HTC?!….

        Here’s the LG spec page- http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/all-lg-phones/LG-smart-phones-G2x.jsp

        Note- 1700/2100 MHz (Quad-Band GSM/Dual-Band UMTS)

        TMO CS told me after digging into this yesterday that the G2x only has TMO 3g bands. No ATT 3g, No Euro 3g. XDA has people with unlocked LGs that only get 2g on ATT. Mobile tech review confirmed the same thing I did with TMO. So if it matters to you, then you have to consider this HTC in that light I guess.

          bogus lg weblink, dude. doesn’t work. it has all the right bands, it’s a world phone. blazing fast stock android!

      • k-mack

        You’re right EHR. Check out this link. http://www.phonearena.com/phones/T-Mobile-G2x_id5272 It will have all the bands for at&t, europe, tmo, asia. I have no clue why some are saying it doesn’t. it does! here is a link to the frequency band usage chart. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UMTS_frequency_bands

    Have you seen the AT&T Android OS Samsung Infuse with a whopping 4.5″ Screen & LED(flash)?
    OMG!
    Hey Tmobile Marketing! Can you hear me now?
    Stop waiting to release a 4.3″+ Android Mobiles with LED(flash)? They’ve been around for a while now…

    • Guest

      I think its stupid and 4.3″ is enough might as well carry a fukin tv around with you sheesh

      • Mopar6464

        I agree, my HD2 with the 4.3 screen is almost to big at times.
        I think a 4″ screen size would be the perfect size.

        • Anonymous

          I think 4″ is the sweet spot….for me anyway. But I’d be ok with the 4.3 if the overall size of the device is easy to handle.

    • Anonymous

      You should probably take your computer out of the kitchen so that you can focus on making sandwiches instead of commenting on phones. Have you ever actually used an AT&T Android device? I didnt think so. Their devices are full of bloatware, the only device capable of taking advantage of their HSPA+ network is the iphone 4 which isnt even a 4G phone. None of their “4G” phones get over 1.5 Mbps. TouchWiz is the destroyer of all processors so you will need a dual core or a ROM Flash if you expect your phone to run as smooth as an HTC Device, or a Stock device. The .2″ is all novelty, in daily use it wont really do much to enhance your experience. Lastly Marketing departments dont make phones or decide on phones carried. So uhh, yeah, that shirt isnt going to iron itself…

      Have 1.2 Ghz Dual Core phones, with Sense 3.0, and 4G speeds been around for awhile? If all you care about is a 4.3″ screen, with android and an LED flash, what are YOU waiting for? Some people actually care about the REAL specs of a phone. T-Mobile doesnt care about what you have to say. Can you hear me now?

  • Tmoguy

    Technology will progress no matter how long you wait. G2X just barely reached the US market and we already have the HTC Sensation and a re-defined 1.2 GHz Samsung S2 . If you were to wait on the Sensation you might be surprised that 2 weeks after that you hear that Samsung is releasing a 1.5 dual core super phone. All I have to say is that if you want a phone that bad just get it because at the end of the day, they are all dual-core phones that can basically handle anything you throw at them. Not to mention, Quad core is already in the making and might be out by Christmas, so are you going to keep waiting or just settle? Technology will not wait for you and something 10x better than the Sensation is already in the making from LG.

    • Anonymous

      +1.

      I don’t get the whole “waiting” deal. I could justify waiting for a truly ground breaking product, but handset manufacturers are releasing phones at such a dizzying pace that waiting just makes no sense. Essentially, every phone that comes out is already outdated. Unless, of course, it’s “magical” then “it changes everything” and definitely worth waiting in line for. (/sarcasm off)

      • Mopar6464

        Who would want a paper weight phone once AT&T takes over.
        I would only buy a new phone from T-Mobile if it has both T-Mobile and AT&T 3G radio specs in it no matter how big the screen is or how awesome the CPU is.
        At least at that point you know it will work great when the AT&T Takeover is complete.
        Some people keep their phones longer than a year and don’t want to spend $500.00 or more every year on a new phone.

        • jarjon76

          With the G2x and the Sensation, you’ll be able to use both on AT&T IF the merger is approved. I’m not concerned about that at all, because by the time the merger is complete (assuming it is approved) I’ll be finishing up my 2 year contract and will be wanting another phone by then.

        • http://twitter.com/mrmiddl75 david middlebrooks

          i think most “techie” people will just pay outright for the best att phone once they shut down T-mo just to retain their plan (if they GF plans in of course), because they update their phones in less than a year anyway. so its not an issue to them. most average users will of course sign a new contract to get an iPhone to show off (because they don’t know any better). and most others will move to other carriers (depending on that GF thing again). thing is, you might not see att 4g or even 3g band phones for t-mo until Q4 or Q1 since most manufacturers will be playing catchup with this merger/buyout.

    • Anonymous

      Judging by the video reviews I have seen of the G2x, I think there is no longer anything to wait for. Literally. When you open apps now you don’t have to wait, and for the non-gamers I think that has been the biggest issue in terms of speed performance of a phone.

      Once you have phones like the G2x, Sensation, SGS2 going around it’s just a matter of manufacturer and UI preference for the most part. Speed? No longer an issue.

      IMO.

      • Farhan

        Other than the obvious increase in the number for cores, I would assume quad core processors would have benefits of lower manufacturing processes and ability to distribute and handle data more efficiently across the 4 cores to reduce power consumption. All in all, you may see quad cores using the same amount of power or maybe even a bit less than current dual cores.

        We’re already seeing these benefits with dual cores if you compare them with a single core processor, albeit the benefits from going from a single core to a dual core will be much more than going from a dual core to a quad core. Essentially it comes down to what you’ll be using the device for since simple every day phone calls and checking emails can be handled by single core processors really well.

        But I do agree, eventually as we move on from the processor race, it’ll boil down to the UI. I am hoping that manufacturers also pay more attention to including encryption on phones. Something like TruCrypt for mobile phones would be awesome to have. With the whole Michigan police fiasco, I’m not too happy about having to share my phone information without a warrant. I’d like to know more about the encryption software that the Galaxy S2 uses, I might consider going with the S2 over the Sensation if it is something useful.

      • jarjon76

        Right, you can only go so far with technology. The reason I prefer the Sensation over the G2x is because of HTC Sense 3.0. I’m a big fan of HTC phones, so I tend to stick with them, and have for quite some time. I really like the G2x–it’s a great phone–but my personal preference is the Sensation. You can’t go wrong with either phone.

    • rock128

      To me, it’s about UI, HTC Sense has always been a great designed UI for HTC’s phones. I would totally wait for this phone not for it’s hardware but the new HTC Sense UI. Remember Samsung Behold II’s useless “box” UI? Plus I’m actually happy to see this phone is going to use S-LCD, which displays more true colors.

  • Cameron W3st

    I don’t understand why so many people are hating on the G2x. I got mine yesterday and by far it is the best phone I’ve ever had…and the Sensation is really NOT a better phone…equal yes…better? No. You have to look at the positives and negatives of everything when comparing things like the G2x and Sensation:
    4.3″ screen – Worse battery life
    1.2 ghz processor – not all that much faster…more for hype than performance really.
    LED indicator light – who cares.
    About the only “better” thing I can see here is that the phone is an HTC.

    Can someone clue me in as to why people thing this is the IT phone and are ragging on the G2x? Because I really don’t get it

    • Cameron W3st

      Also…my G2x hasn’t randomly rebooted…doesn’t have spotty service (its running full bars of 4g right now) and my phone lasts about 6 hours with heavy heavy use…to me ..that isn’t bad.

      Maybe I got lucky…I don’t know

      • Anonymous

        I really dont know where people are getting these issues from, I have to blame the user, I have been using a G2x for about a week and half now and have been nothing but impressed by the phone. I also havent experienced any issues except for the phone force closing Speed test on me once.

        • Farhan

          How have you been using the G2x for a week and a half? The preorders started on the 15th so that would mean you bought your phone a few days before the preorder.

        • Anonymous

          I didnt buy the phone. I get a lot of phones in advance of release. Not all usually the “flagship” models.

        • Anonymous

          Come now my good man. There will be problems as there are with any device. My first Nexus One was riddled with problems but I immediately obtained a replacement from HTC (before their refurb inventory is developed) and it was great, and still is. My G2 is also great, but there are going to be problems and people should be sharing them so all concerned can develop solutions.

    • k-mack

      i don’t hear anybody hating on G2X? i’ve seen it and it is fast! stock android, 4″ screen, 8mp camera, sleek design, wifi-calling, world frequency bands. this phone kicks butt. i’d get it but I’m still rocking with my stock android G2!

    • Asdf

      people with jobs care about the indicator light nubtard

  • Tmoguy

    I totally agree with you Cameron. Some people are very shady. If you hate the G2X so much don’t buy it but at the same time please don’t hate on it cause you see something else that seems to be a little more better. At the end of the day, they are both dual core devices. Some people just can’t afford it so they degrade it

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EVYBM3M5N4KOCHH3RVVA3ZLI7Q Mark

    Ehhh, I’ll stick to 3.7-4.0 inch phones. I think 4.3 and above are to big.

  • Anonymous

    I havent really cared much to post on this blog lately, maybe because there hasnt been much “new information” since the AT&T merger, I said back in February (Galaxy S 4G release post) that both of these phones were real so it doesnt really surprise me much. What does surprise me are the idiots in here getting all testy over opinions. People are trying to call eachother out for liking their phones? This is a forum, arent all these comments opinions or warped facts? Did you guys forget there really isnt a formula for which phone is better? Some people prefer a 1Ghz Nvidia to a 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon. Some people would prefer a 4″ screen over 4.3″. Some people actually love sense, some people prefer stock. These phones are both amazing phones in their own respect, T-Mobile has been on a roll I’d say since back in November routinely launching phones that are game changing. I prefer stock Android over Sense any day of the week. I have playe with the G2x and have found it to be the snappiest phone I’ve ever used, I havent been that impressed with an Android phone since the G2. Even the Galaxy S phones needed to be rooted to reach their full potential. In my opinion, they wasted a lot of real estate on the bottom of the phone with the soft keys, something about it turns me off to the phone in a way I never imagined it would (a blogger on here actually pointed that out and I thought it was ridiculous, but it’s not). So even though I think the G2x has the potential to be a better phone, because I am a person with opinions and taste, I will probably continue using my HD7, continue letting the Galaxy S 4G collect dust, and wait on the Sensation. I have actually gotten used to the 4.3″ screen, although between that and 4″ screens, it’s the same thing people.

    Oh a few other things, this phone does in fact have AT&T 3G bands, what I have heard is that there will have to be some sort of unlocking of the ability to avoid people buying the phone and using it on AT&T before the merger goes through, and this merger will go through as much as I dont want it too. The info I have gotten is that it is what took so long to announce and why the announcement was delayed. I have also heard, although I cant confirm it, that the Galaxy S 4G has the same capability. In any event, I would like to remind all the people that come in here calling their phones paper weights or bricks that this merger will not be complete for at least 18 months after announcement which puts us at September of 12. I am hearing it will take them at least 1-2 years to re-purpose the spectrum acquired from T-Mobile. If none of this sounds like something you want to gamble on, theres always the EVO 3D for Sprint will you’ll get blazingly fast 2Mbps – 4Mbps WiMax “4G”.

    At least I dont have to argue the same stupid a$$ “t-mobile doesnt have a super phone” comments. Funny how Verizon and AT&T announced all those phones back in January and each carrier has only managed to release one of them, with Verizon still not serving up a Dual Core phone and AT&T still not allowing their “4G” phones 4G. Where are all the complainers now? This Sensation will arrive before the Droid Bionic and probably before the LG Revolution too. The good thing at least for AT&T is that their Infuse will be out just in time to be irrelevant in a Dual Core age with the GS2 a few weeks behind it in release, and you people complained about the GS4G.

    Rant over…

    • Mopar6464

      So if you have all this so called inside infrormation why don’t you have your own website or work for TmoNews ?
      You dont know any more about how fast this AT&T buyout will happen as anyone else does. And about unlocking AT&T’s 3g specs in the new phones,yea right. HTC can’t confirm that one when asked and they build the damn things.
      They have to be physically built in the phone to start with and HTC does not list them. Those phones were designed way before the merger deal was announced a short time ago.
      So if you have all the proof and answers, cough em up.

    I’ve been an android early adopter, had many android phones, and currently have a Nexus S, which is amazing. As much as I like the raw android, I miss a decent ui like sence, and the press release makes the new sence, that which this phone is named after look damn good. I am looking at the G2x, but think I may just wait for this one.

    What worrys me here is that as far as I know, there is no concrete evidence that this phone is even coming to t-mobile in the US. We may all be getting our hopes up for nothing. Tell me I am wrong and it’s definitely coming to the states….

      T-Mobile USA has confirmed WAY too many times that the Sensation is coming to the States. There was a press release, Facebook posting, & T-Mobile USA confirmed on Twitter. The only confirmation that’s needed now is the release date which is hinted to be June 8th.
