It's not coming to the United States, but for those in Europe seeking an Android phone with a knack for music, the HTC Sensation XL is a nice option.  Packing a 1.5 GHz single-core Snapdragon CPU, Sensation XL offers a 4.7-inch Super LCD display, 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 1,600 mAh battery, Beats Audio integration, and Android 2.3.5 with HTC Sense 3.5.  Despite the single-core processor (which admittedly, is an odd feature switch for HTC), it's packing some useful features like a large WVGA display and Beats integration.  Can it compete with dual-core Android powerhouses like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus?

Daniel Airozo I bought a unlocked k1 KRZR back in 2007 and most recently an unlocked iPhone 4 last year.
Kris K. Blomgren I liked fat Aaron better. This skinny AIDS infected version of Aaron is a but pompous and tries SO hard to be like Noah. Annnnnnnnnnd enough with reading the Spanish literature that comes with phones, No one cares.

Aaron Dean Aren't most apps optimized for single core processors.I am sure they are
Eric Quach quit talking shit about single cores. WP is one reason why Single core works, and you can still do stuff fine with single core.
Young Bin Song Lordy..... 1.5Ghz SINGLE-CORE QUALCOMM? What kind of sh*tty phone is this?
Pierce G Hohenstein I loved the unboxing. It seems as though the Sensation XL is a solid offering. However I feel as though UI's dumb down the overall user experience. HTC Sense is one such UI.
Lisa Lubova Cliver Yes, it's the real way to go. Especially with androids, phones have come along way but my fab unlocked were Nokia's
Josh Moore yes, bought a Motorola A780 a few years ago
Shawn McDonald Yes, all the nexus lines for T-Mobile
Scott Heppell I order all of mine online. Being in the Army and stationed in Europe it works out well. Been happy with every purchase. Samsung Galaxy S2 currently.
Martin Smeaton Does Craigslist count? That's where the international Galaxy S2 in writing this on came from. Using it on fido, its the bees knees.
Sefa Sagdic Yes i got my HTC Sensation XE online
Christopher Williams Been thinking about it but nothing yet.
