HTC Sensation Goes White, Offers ICS

HTC is ready to sink its teeth into a delicious white Ice Cream Sandwich.

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.

Ice Cream Sandwich is one of the biggest updates to Android yet, and includes such features as scanning your face to unlock the phone, a much more robust speech-to-text software program, and an entire platform of data sharing that focuses on Near Field Communication (NFC).

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.
