HTC to Offer Early Preview of Sense on Ice Cream Sandwich
HTC said that it will offer a very small set of its European customers a chance to preview the next generation of Sense for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The preview is being offered to owners of the Sensation and Sensation XE. HTC said the preview is being limited while it spools up its servers for general availability of the update worldwide. "Our hope is people will play with it and enjoy getting used to the ICS experience with Sense," said an HTC rep to Phone Scoop in an email. Though the preview is not going to be available to U.S. customers, it will provide an idea of what U.S. consumers can expect to see on their HTC devices down the road.
