It looks like they might have dropped the qualcomm's SoC. It's about god damn time.
After experiencing ics on samsung galaxy nexus, i would have to say it is pretty good. A far cry from gingerbread and the previous generations. Used to owned a few htc phones, since the era of htc magic. But sense was a huge let down. The major drawback was the amount of ram it takes. Ics alone will take up more memory, let alone with both ics and sense running together. On top of that, htc sense will degrade the overall experience of ics. Just my two cents, htc should redesign their htc sense to intergrate into the new ics. It might not be convincing till you head down to a nearer mobile shop and hands-on on the new ics. In short, new ics is pretty bad ass and google should implement it without the UI from different brands, just like the galaxy nexus. However brands will lose their unique features and worthiness and credits. But this is a huge step to take if google want to take on ios with their new ics. Above all, rooting is an alternative and user can still experience the "naked" ics os but not everyone understand about rom flashing.
I'm pretty satisfied with the Desire S. This new model still not affordable and LTE as well not exist here. Still waiting for ICS to my Desire S.
Hey friends please stop your bad comments. This smartphone is now just in pictures we don't have any information about the specifications. So wait till officail announcement. How you can say this is dumb mobile from picture? Chill friends
I thought Sense 4.o and ICS would change such a dull look, it appears HTC have not changed thier designs AT all! Change the UI already, and the designs are nondescript once again.
1.Phone is white(on the back)
2.Sense Version 4.0(not Sensation)
3.Display looks Amoled,look at the top bar (black)
4.Design is fine (it's very arguable here,after those comments).
I hope the reason for that back is a bigger battery.
Strangely how many peoples understand something else,even with pictures in front of them
Whatchasay, 10 Feb 2012YAaaaWN... another black brick. I guess Nokia is the only one who cares about phone design now. I would say SONY too!

Another bland looking slab, back looks a little better, HTC needs to adopt a bit more of a designer approach.
