HTC Details Android 4.0 Roll-Out Plans
HTC today provided more details via its Facebook page on when it will update its existing smartphones to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The first batch includes the Sensation, Sensation 4G and Sensation XE by the end of March, with the Sensation XL soon after. HTC says that owners of the Rezound, Vivid, Amaze 4G, EVO 3D, EVO Design 4G, Incredible S, Desire S, and Desire HD will receive Android 4.0 later this year. HTC will provide more specific details about the upgrades in the coming weeks.
Phone Scoop met with T-Mobile today and was able to spend some time with its new newest — and fastest — 4G phones, the HTC Amaze 4G and the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G. Here are our initial impressions.

HTC continues its winning streak of killer devices for T-Mobile with the amazing Amaze 4G. It is one of the fastest phones available from T-Mobile and includes one of the best cameras that Phone Scoop has tested.

HTC today announced the Sensation XE, its first handset to include audio technology from its new partnership with Beats Audio. The Sensation XE is essentially the same Sensation announced earlier this year (sold by T-Mobile as the Sensation 4G), but with a few changes.

The US version of HTC's Hero S - just released for US Cellular - contains hardware supporting Sprint's unique network, including WiMAX, and CDMA in the ESMR (old iDEN) band, according to the FCC approval documents for the phone. Much like the Motorola Electrify for US Cellular is essentially the Photon with WiMAX disabled, HTC has done the same for the Hero S.

There is a reason HTC is not the leader anymore.
While I used to HATE Samsung, and I still wont use anything with TouchWiz, Id rather buy a Samsung phone and root it and customize it than buy another HTC phone. Why? Cause at the end of the day, Samsung is learning to support their line up longer, and HTC has discovered they dont have to....but look where it got them!
Id rather go with a company that will support updates (and yes these phones BOTH have enough space and power) than stick with ...
And that's not even counting that Samsung has never put out an Android update with out it having an issue and needing to stop the update til they fixed it.
But it's like I always say- if you want a good device, you don't buy an Android phone.
This is why HTC rocks!
Wanna stop the B.S.?
