HTC Dresses Sensation In White Ice To Receive ICS
We already knew to expect that the HTC Sensation was getting an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich, but what we didn´t expect was that also will receive a white version as well. We have already seen Sensation XL in white and it looks quite nice. Currently, the Sensation comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a dual core MSM8260 Snapdragon at 1.GHz and S-LCD capacitive touchscreen with 540 x 960 pixels, 4.3 inches. The white version has the same specs as the one we already know and only changes its appearance with a nice white and silver color.
The expected launch date for this model is pointing to March 1st, and with the release date we hope HTC Sense 4.0 is finished and ready to load into the White Sensations. Unfortunately for the devices already circulating in the market there is no specific date for the “official” update, which will arrive via OTA.
HTC Germany is the first to confirm the launch of the white Sensation.

Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
