HTC has announced the Sensation will be one of the first phones it updates to Ice Cream Sandwich, and T-Mobile is now giving them away in a Web only deal through March 20. It normally sells for $150 on contract, but for the next 36 hours or so, that price is cut to zero with the Web only instant $150 discount. It's a powerful phone with a good quality display and full HD video capture. That it will get Android 4.0 sooner than most other phones is an added bonus.

What we don't know is the level of customization HTC and T-Mobile will add to Google's newest smartphone system update. That means HTC will update unlocked versions of the Sensation before it gets to the T-Mobile variant. Other Android phones are in the same boat in the U.S. The only carrier branded phones to get updated to the new operating system are the HTC Vivid (AT&T) and the Nexus S 4G(Sprint). What we know from the Vivid update is HTC included their own software update with the Google Android update. It's called HTC Sense 3.6, and the result is a blend of the two systems on the Vivid. That is likely what will happen with the Sensation 4G. Begin the slideshow to check out some of the Sensation 4G features and what the new software update offers.
