ICS comes to T-Mobile Sensation and Amaze 4G devices

T-Mobile has taken to Twitter to announce that its pair of HTC 4G smartphones will be upgraded to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The first device to get the update will be the Sensation 4G, which gets an over-the-air update starting today. Amaze 4G users can expect to get their taste of ICS starting from May 21.

The ICS update should bring considerable performance improvements to the two smartphones. In addition to general optimizations throughout the OS, Android 4.0 is the first Google smartphone OS to properly support multi-core devices. Users will also experience Android Beam, Face Unlock and a range of camera app enhancements. A mandatory charge of $15 per month will apply for the newly enabled mobile hotspot function, although users can decline the update if they don't want to incur the additional fee.

Today's news follows a statement issued yesterday by Samsung that its current range of T-Mobile-branded Samsung products will also be getting ICS updates shortly. On the list to get updates include the Galaxy S II, the Galaxy S Blaze 4G, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
