Re: Sense 3.5 port?
Well Verizon was seen at the Nokia World a few days ago, which would lead me to believe that Verizon may very well be getting a Nokia device Q1 2012. If not, im sure Verizon/Sprint should be getting another HTC device of some sort.
I would wait for a 2nd gen device to hit before renewing your contract. Or you could always buy a 1st gen device and turn around and sell it to purchase a 2nd gen.
