Vodafone might well be taking the lead on the HTC Sensation pre-orders, but UK phone operator Three has piped up that it will be getting the new phone too.

“The HTC Sensation will be available to Three customers this summer,” the provider told Pocket-lint.

Sylvia Chind, head of Handsets said, “To make the most of all the features jam-packed into this phone, it’s important to have a data plan that lets you enjoy it to its full potential. Our customers will be free to enjoy our all-you-can-eat internet offering on this exciting new phone.”

Vodafone will be getting the 1.2GHz-powered Sense 3.0 smartphone in May, so it looks like they will have the lead. Just not for long.
