HTC Sensation 4G to get ICS on May 16, HTC Amaze 4G next in line
T-Mobile subscribers, do you own an HTC Sensation 4G or an HTC Amaze 4G? If so, then boy do we have good news for you! Both of these smartphones will be getting updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the very near future, as indicated by information published on the T-Mobile web site.

The HTC Sensation 4G ICS update will start rolling out on May 16 and will bring the smartphone's Android version to 4.0.3. In addition, the platform's interface will be beautified by the Sense 3.6 user interface. Other notable changes include the addition of Face Unlock, data usage controls, resizable widgets, multitasking tweaks, and improved spell checking. Improvements in battery life are likely to be noticed as well.

The HTC Amaze 4G ICS update is scheduled to roll out within the following weeks. Again, that includes Android 4.0 with Sense 3.6 UI installed on top, along with a whole bunch of goodies and improvements. Pretty much all the aforementioned features will come to the Amaze 4G as well.

Anyone excited about these two software update coming soon? Then do not hesitate to let us know by dropping a comment below.

Does this has to do anything with t-mobile UK or they are unrelated because t-mobile uk has not released the update for the htc sensation?

T-Mo UK and T-Mo USA are two different phone companies...

i've had ICS on my Amaze for a few weeks now and i love it. there was hardly any battery improvement, after installing Advance Task Killer though i get 8+ hrs with only 50-60% charge lost. i'm loving the new look and feel, minus the Sense that is. my phone seems to be running super fast and smooth. only issue i've noted is that Widgetlocker and the Sense lockscreen tend to conflict.

Anyone notice in the pic that you will now have to add wifi hotspot to your account to use it? Jerks. Come on Tmob! That 2GB of data used on my phone or others is for me to use! They want $15 for prepaid customers. Too bad I'm using ARHD :-)

HTC went final with it around Jan 31st. Don't blame them.

I also have an og transformer and it got the promised update much, much earlier. I know it didn't have to go through a carrier but still. HTC should deliver when it promises.

T-Mobile had to fix Wi-Fi calling, which is their most popular feature.
