    Apparently...

    May on Vodafone, June SIM-Free so get it on Orange from somewhere like CPW (means you get it SIM-Free so not loaded with Orange junk)

    A beast of a phone! I feel sorry for anyone who's recently purchased a Desire, Desire HD, Desire S, Incredible S or the like. Now....who's getting one? :D

    Tbh, I'd rather skip this generation and wait for icecream os and quad core processors possibly tegra 3.

    A nice phone though, just wondering how much phone storage there is for apps though. I find it frustrating that that information always seems sketchy.

    Bet it will sell very well though :)

    HTC - Products - HTC Sensation - Specification

    Seems black and white to me. 1gb internal storage. Where is the 16gb?!

    I'm on the fence with this or the LG g2x to replace my nexus.

    Why do you need 16GB for apps when 1GB is absolutely fine. I'd be more than happy with 1-2GB of internal storage and the SD card for everything else

    Looks nice, I was hoping for something more like this for the evo 3d on sprint.

    Waiting for it to arrive on at&t, one way or another... ;)

    Wish it has the Atrix's battery though.

    1gb storage, but does that figure in os, htc sense, apps, widgets. How much space left after this?

    I ended up with 140ish mb on desire so quoted specs mean very little.

    Phone storage for apps should be quoted after crap ware not before.

    Im out of space on desire and don't want to root. Want quoted values to reflect real life space.

    seeing as my upgrade is in 2012 i may also wait for dual-core :p but this is really tempting :)

    Was totally disappointed at MWC when HTC announced the Desire S and Incredible S. This is more like what I am talking about. However would love to see AMOLED screens on these HTC phones. When I compare my Desire to the SLCD screens of the Desire HD there is no competition for me. Does anyone know when Samsung and LG will be pumping up the AMOLED screen production to meets the demands of HTC and others?

    HTC will NEVER learn! Nice phone, with tiny battery. WHY CAN'T THEY PUT AT LEAST a 1900mAh battery IN A PHONE?!?!? I returned the TB because the battery life (and size) was not anywhere close to other 4.3 inch phones like the Droid X. I guess I will be getting the Bionic....

    i think a few in here are forgetting that CDMA networks hit the battery harder versus GSM networks. the phone is supposed to get about 8.25hrs of talk time so that's about right. that's more than what a stock Evo gets and about what smart phones average these days.

    if you want a locked bootloader and motoblur, then Moto is the way to go, but i don't fancy either of those on my devices :)

    the Sensation looks great though. i'm on the fence between it and a G2x as well. will wait for reviews to come out for both and then go to the store to check them out in person and make a decision on the fly. can't go wrong with either imo.

    only other hot handset left to drop this year is basically the GalaxyS2 line. and of course Qualcomm will be releasing their ARM Cortex A9 dual-core processor for phones way later this year
