HTC Sensation 4G Google ad

When T-Mobile finally made the HTC Sensation 4G official, they left one critical detail out of the announcement: the device's release date. Thanks to a bit of detective work, though, we may finally know when the smartphone formerly known as Pyramid will arrive. Our friends at TmoNews recently spotted an ad on Google that says "HTC Sensation 4G - On 6/8 - Complete w/ HTC Watch & HTC Sense." The evidence doesn't end there, though. After examining the Sensation 4G's press image, the date in HTC's time and weather widget just so happens to be, you guessed it, June 8th. It's also worth noting that June 8th falls on a Wednesday, the day of the week that Magenta typically launches new devices.

As with all rumors, this info should be taken with a grain or two of your favorite kind of salt. I recommend sea salt. After all, it's possible that the Google ad is actually about the European version of the Sensation. However, it's also worth noting that when T-Mo announced the Sensation 4G, they referred to it as the "Sensation 4G," and that same device goes by that same name on this page of HTC's site. The unbranded model, however, is just called "Sensation" on HTC's site. We'll keep our ears to the ground and let you know if any more details come to light, but feel free to drop your thoughts and theories in the comments below!
