According to early leaked retail materials, Target may soon offer a special promotion for the recently launched T-Mobile USA HTC Sensation 4G Android smartphone. The flagship device, with its qHD displat, dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, and the latest build of HTC Sense on Android Gingerbread, can be had for $130 starting on August 14th if Phandroid‘s sources are accurate.
It’s unclear if the device will be getting a temporary promotion or if this will be an on-going sale. The $130 asking price will be the device price with a two-year service agreement from T-Mobile USA; the Sensation 4G normally costs $199.99 with a two-year contract.
The Sensation 4G also boasts a slim profile with a sturdy unibody aluminum build that looks good and feels great in the hands. It definitely feels a lot lighter and sleeker than the HTC Desire HD–also released as the HTC Inspire 4G on AT&T–which is the last-generation model that the Sensation is supposed to replace.
In addition to Target, if you don’t mind buying online and waiting a day or two for delivery, you can shop at other online retailers. Most often, Amazon and other third-party retailers will offer lower prices for devices than the carriers offer through their online store or physical retail stores.
