The new model of the HTC Sensation will be available in white, with the same under-the-hood specs as the unit that launched last year - with one major exception. It will have Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich.
NFC so far has been mostly focused on using your phone as a payment device in retail stores, but with Ice Cream Sandwich's Android Beam, it can also allow users to easily share contact information, Youtube videos, or website addresses simply by waving two phones next to each other.
Several other manufacturers have pledged support for the new update, and a bunch of phones currently running an older version of Android will be eligible to upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich beginning in the coming months.
However, there have also been problems. The Nexus S phone and Transformer Prime tablet both pushed out Ice Cream Sandwich updates and ended up causing handfuls of units to crash and become unusable.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
