HTC Sensation 4G Release for Canada: Virgin Mobile Too

We’ve written numerous articles about the HTC Sensation 4G and only yesterday posted a video contrast of the Galaxy S2 vs. the Sensation. We also posted some release news for our friends in Canada recently as it looks as though it will be coming to Bell in July. Today we have news that it may also be released in Canada on Virgin Mobile.

When we told of the HTC Sensation coming to Bell in mid-July we also told how a retail inventory system is now listing cases for the HTC Sensation so it looked pretty promising. The news of the Sensation also being released on Virgin in Canada came from a VirginMobileCan tweet which simply says, “phone news! We’ll be adding the @htc sensation 4G to our hot line-up. niiice! stay tuned for more details. ^je”

News of this came to us from Ian Hardy over on MobileSyrup and apparently Bell has already announced a price for the Sensation 4G as $549.95 You can read much more about the HTC Sensation 4G over on the HTC Canada website product pages here. As a brief recap it features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch qHD display, widely praised in our review roundup, 8-megapixel camera and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Sense UI.

Are you waiting for the HTC Sensation to come to Canada? What has made you choose this smartphone rather than perhaps the Galaxy S2 (S II), also coming to Canada? Let us know with your comments.
