There is a catch, however: it looks like it's only available for the Desire HD and Desire Z phones, which should be going on sale any day now. I signed up for it and attempted to use it with my plain ol' Desire, but didn't have much luck.
Android Central got their hands on a new Android phone: the HTC Merge, an 800 MHz Android 2.2 phone headed to Verizon. It's a World Phone that uses HTC Sense and has a sliding keyboard similar to the T-Mobile G2.
Heading States-ward later this year (and Europe next month), the Desire HD and updated Sense UI has been shown off in an official video by HTC. How great do the new cached maps looks?
"No longer is HTC just about putting a phone in your hand," said HTC at their event, ushering in HTCSense.com, a service which pairs up a HTC user's phone with their computer, for easy data management.
Even though Microsoft has been strict in regards to what manufacturers can do with the Windows Phone 7 interface, HTC said late last week that the Sense UI would nevertheless find its way onto those devices, perhaps in October.
HTC makes some beautiful phones, but designer Andrew Kim still sees room for improvement. The HTC 1 is his vision for a device with an even more refined and harmonious design. Can you spot the hidden kickstand?
For all those of you who read Kat's glowing review of the U.K.-only HTC Desire and lamented the fact that you couldn't get your American paws on one, rejoice!

The best Android skin has married one of the best Android phones, despite HTC piping up in the back saying "sheeee's miiiine!" While it's not an official marriage, it doesn't mean the love is any less real.
A new feature that's making its way onto all of HTC's Android phones via its Sense overlay is the "helicopter view," as they call it internally. It's like Mac OS X's Exposé function, letting you see all homescreens instantly.
Let's just get this out of the way: in terms of hardware, the Touch HD2 is the nicest phone in the world. It's ostentatiously huge and amazingly slim; it's business-savvy and utterly pornographic. But hardware like this deserves better. UPDATED
HTC's new UI patent that "organizes applications, widgets, and web pages into pages of a virtual book" may "borrow" a few ideas from Palm, but it's cool with me. I'm all for a snazzier version of Pre's card system.
