Vodafone has confirmed that it will be exclusively carrying the HTC Sensation, which it will be launching in Mid-May – other UK networks will get their mitts on it in June

Published on Apr 12, 2011

The HTC Sensation will be getting a UK release via Vodafone in “mid-May.”

Other UK networks, so Orange, O2, and T-Mobile, will have to wait until June.

We’ve just got back from the official unveiling of the Sensation in London. The event went off without a hitch with a host of speakers from HTC’s top-brass, but no Peter Chou unfortunately.

The HTC Sensation is HTC’s first ever dual core processor device and features a completely revamped HTC Sense UI (Version 3.0).

Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) is also onboard, as is 768MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM and an 8-megapixel shooter and front-facing VGA camera for video-calling.

Yes this phone is the big sister to the new thunderbolt. It has the same specs as the Evo 3D except no 3D recording capability and only 700 Meg of ram versus 1 gigabyte on evo

Will T-Mobile be the US carrier?

Nevermind, missed it in the OP.

Hopefully not the only one. Fingers are crossed for a VZW version.

Looks nice..

is it possible to get this SIM free from htc or T-Mobile?
I might consider T-Mobile pre-paid or my current AT&T or foreign SIM, but I'm not gonna take 2-year contract..I would use it mainly with Wifi, but occasionally I need cellular connectivity (e.g. abroad).

btw, are the internet-based sim unlock providers reliable, such as theunlock?

Hopefully it'll have a more capacious battery than the Thunderbolt. :rolleyes:

That's the absolute, number 1, feature of the Atrix that I LOVE. 1930mAh!

15 days is a bit sensationalist, but I'm betting with stock software it should get you through a day's use easily... which is nice. :) (and I mean heavy use...)

Indeed. T-Mobile does have this knack for kicking out Google Experience Devices one after the other. The main thing about the Sensation though, is Sense 3.0. I'm betting since it's the showcase phone for Sense 3.0, it'll ship with Sense installed.
