HTC Ville revealed and ICS for the HD2…

I had reasonable suspicion in a previous post that we had not seen what the HTC Ville would look like. Well now, courtesy of PocketNow (which has a history of leaking renders of this nature), we can. Overall, I like the look, with minimal thickness, a good amount of metal, lots of screen and a fair amount of rounding (including towards the edges of the black area around the screen – convex like the Nokia Lumia 800 rather than concave like the HTC Sensation). Unfortunately though, it seems to have a single LED flash – either HTC has changed its idea of what people want, or the LED flash used is superior to those they previously used. The brightness of the LEDs on my HD2 has never been substantially surpassed by a non-xenon flash in my experience though, so I fear the former is the case. My search for a new phone continues…

Fortunately, in a way that only xda-developers can manage, the still-popular HD2 is being kept more up-to-date than nearly all true Android phones updated only via official methods, with Android 4.0 ported to the device very quickly.
