Looks like HTC and T-Mobile may be pushing ICS to the Sensation 4G sooner than expected, as the Sensation's support documents on T-Mobile's site just got an encouraging update:
That's a lofty claim, isn't it? Isn't there a new "next generation" every year? Well, to answer that last question, not always. But technology is evolving at such a rapid pace in the mobile world that we can scarcely buy a phone today without something better coming out a month later. And today, just days from Samsung's announcement of the next Galaxy phone, everyone is watching with bated breath to see what comes next.

In recent memory, there are only 2 phones I've been as excited to lay my hands on as the One X, and those are the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II. There's a good reason for my excitement: this is the first phone to pack Nvidia's excellent Tegra 3 CPU. And that's just the tip of the iceberg, really; other touted features - such as the amazing unibody design, ultra high-quality camera, and beautiful screen - help build upon that excitement.
An Android phone is like a Leatherman Tool. It does a lot of things - without a doubt, a triumph of function over form. Android is the world's most versatile mobile operating system, the most tweakable, the most adaptable, and the most fully-featured. It just does more than any other comparable product out there. But if Android is a Leatherman, the iPhone is the basic Swiss Army Knife - compact, simple, iconic, and good enough for the vast majority of people, even if it does do a little less.
The Android Police Podcast is back for another week of... whatever it is we do. Let's get down to it, this week's topics are:
- Carrier 411
- Sprint says it's not going to sell any more WiMAX devices, which is great news if you have a track record of paying no attention to anything ever and buying electronics literally months after they become obsolete.
- Return of the Google Drive Rumors
- Three stories about the HTC One Series and a number joke I can't come up with.
When it comes to rumors, the day before the press conference announcing a device often turns out to be the most reliable. Just such a rumor has landed today, in the form of a purported "press photo" of Sprint's EVO One (at least, that's the rumored name).
Now, I don't want to be a Debbie-downer here, but there are a few things that make this "press photo" look like less than the real McCoy (though I'm not outright calling it a fake - so read on).
The AT&T Galaxy SII (i777) isn't the only Android device getting official CyanogenMod 9 nightly love today, as the first nightlies just went live for the HP TouchPad (codename tenderloin) and the LG Nitro HD (codename p930, also known as LG Optimus LTE on Bell Canada).
The Android Police Podcast is back - and this week's episode is one you won't want to miss. Unless you really want to miss it, in which case, It's OK, we'll forgive you. But just this once.
Down to business, this week's topics (with links for your convenience).
