T-Mobile USA has updated its support page for the HTC Sensation 4G, finally bringing some news on the Android 4.0.3 ICS upgrade that owners of the phone have been longing for. After promising early in the month that the update to Ice Cream Sandwich would be here “very soon”, the carrier is now ready to open its dessert bar on May 16.
As stated on T-Mobile’s website, the OTA update for the HTC Sensation 4G will roll out starting May 16. Aside from all of the features of ICS that one can expect, such as Face Unlock and re-sizeable widgets, you will also get HTC Sense 3.6 as part of the package. T-Mobile promises improved battery life performance as well.
We won’t blame owners of the HTC Sensation 4G – or any other model, for that matter — that get rather testy when it comes to the topic of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. But the tossing and turning in bed waiting for the upgrade might soon be a thing of the past. Although a recent leak about T-Mobile’s planned ICS upgrade schedule indicated that HTC Sensation 4G will only get the latest Android OS in mid-June, it appears the carrier is ready to roll it out faster.
The good news comes from none other than the support forum on T-Mobile’s website. Posted on May 2, the carrier said that they’ve completed the testing process of ICS for HTC Sensation 4G and that they [...]

The Sensation might not be as snappy and elegant as the One X, but is still a pretty great gadget and, it will most likely satisfy your thirst for technology, without paying a dime.
On the other hand, if you think [...]
