Android 4.0 Now Rolling Out To The HTC Sensation In Nordic Countries, Sensation XE In Germany

Users from abroad with the HTC Sensation better start hitting that 'Check update' button - according to this thread on the XDA forums, the Ice Cream Sandwich OTA update just started rolling out.

HTC is being unusually quiet about the update, so it's unclear on whether or not the update is official or an accidental push, but many of the XDA members have already received it. As such, there's no official changelog at the moment, but we do know that the OTA is bringing Android 4.0.3 and Sense 3.6 to the handset.

The HTC Vivid, one of AT&T's mid-range (if you can call it that) phones is getting an unofficial bump to ICS courtesy of, who else? XDA. User Pirateghost has offered up a flashable Android 4.0.3 ROM.

HTC Says Sense Got Too Bloated (And So Did Their Product Line), But They're Going Back To Simple

Back in the early days of Android, HTC's Sense UI really stood out as a much-needed step up in the UI department, compared both to stock Android and to competitors custom UIs. Like a hard-partying rock star, though, it just didn't age well; it went from sleek, helpful, and attractive, to bloated and borderline obtrusive. Sense 4.0 - which we spotted slapped atop of Ice Cream Sandwich - was definitely a step against that direction in some ways, but still offended some people - Cameron included.

[Rumor] Is Sprint Getting Its Own Variant Of The HTC One X (Or Something Eerily Similar) Codenamed 'Jewel'?

While HTC just officially announced the One X at Mobile World Congress and AT&T shotgunned exclusive rights in the U.S. to the beast for its LTE network (albeit packing a Krait chip instead of the Tegra 3), there's now a rumor floating around that Sprint could be getting a device similar to the One X, codenamed the Jewel.

Details on the Jewel are scarce right now, but rumor has it that the device is packing a large HD display (similar to the One X) and should be one of the flagship devices on Sprint's upcoming LTE network.

[MWC 2012] Hands-On With The HTC One S - Like The One X, But Smaller

Last night we got some hands-on time with HTC's new family of smartphones - the One series. While we didn't get a hands-on video with the One X (largely due to a dead battery), we did spend a fair amount of time with the One S, which shares most of its hardware with its larger sibling.
