Looking for more clues as to when the HTC Sensation will be launching on T-Mobile? We typically rely on leaked inventory system images or an anonymous tip, but this time HTC has done all the work themselves. It’s unclear if it was a simple mistake or a calculated promotional plan, but if you happened to do a Google search for “HTC Sensation” yesterday, you may have noticed a sponsored link at the top of the page which read “HTC Sensation 4G — On 6/8 — w/HTC Watch & HTC Sense.”
If that wasn’t enough, the official image for the Sensation that was sent out in HTC’s press release and is featured on their site also shows the June 8th date on the clock widget. Coincidence? Not likely.
Many have jumped to the conclusion that T-Mobile will launch the HTC Sensation on June 8th, but we don’t think that is the case. T-Mobile and HTC’s press release stated that the HTC Sensation 4G would launch during the summer of 2011. If they had plans to launch the Sensation in June, they most likely would have given a Q2 launch window. Our guess is that T-Mobile will allow current customers to pre-order the HTC Sensation on June 8th and will launch the handset during the first or second week of July. But we really, really hope that we’re wrong.
How many of you would be willing to stick things out with T-Mobile in order to get your hands on HTC’s first dual-core Android handset and HTC Sense 3.0?
