HTC dual-core Sensation 4G gets Bell release

Bell gained the distinction of being the first if not only Canadian carrier to get the HTC Sensation 4G. Its version will be much like the international version of the 1.2GHz, dual-core Android 2.3 phone but switch over to Bell's HSPA frequencies, also shared with most Canadian carriers and AT&T, and carry 14.4Mbps. The carrier is pushing its Mobile TV app for live streaming but also plans to carry HTC's Watch movie store.

The Sensation 4G is HTC's most advanced smartphone to date and, apart from the speed, centers on a 4.3-inch, 540x960 display. It packs a 1.3-megapixel front camera and an eight-megapixel rear camera that can drive 1080p video recording. HTC' Sense 3.0 is making its first appearance on a phone and has tricks such as launching some apps from the lock screen.

Bell didn't say what the price would be for the phone and promised only that the phone would be ready in the "coming weeks," although it's expected by many to come in at $200 or less on a three-year contract.
