It's not coming to the United States, but if you're looking for a nice Android phone to purchase unlocked, the HTC Sensation XL could be the phone.  Featuring a 1.5 GHz single-core Scorpion CPU, it offers a 4.7-inch Super LCD (WVGA) display, 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, 1,600 mAh battery, and Android 2.3.5 with HTC Sense 3.5.  It comes with Beats Audio integration, so you'll get a pair of iBeats headphones in the box.

Despite the single-core processor, the Sensation XL is a nice unit that performs better in day-to-day tests than the HTC Rezound on Verizon.  Is it worth spending the money to bring over to the States, or should you hold out for CES 2012 devices to hit retail stores?  Part 1 of 2.
