What HTC Means When They Talk About "Sense" On Windows Mobile

Sense for Windows Mobile isn't a full port of the Hero's interface for Android; it's a nebulous design philosophy, with "pillars" and a "vision." But don't worry! It—taking the form of TouchFlo 2.6 here—isn't as lame as it sounds. » 8/18/09 11:20am 8/18/09 11:20am

Dealzmodo Hack: Cooked Software Revives HTC Phones

HTC has always known their biggest weakness: Windows Mobile. They've done their best to hide the aged interface in glossy costumes and bolster performance, but they can only do so much—the OS is slow, buggy and can drain battery life on certain hardware.

HTC Touch Diamond Hands-on Update

I'm still working on the full review, but I wanted to give everyone an update on that performance fix that was released last week for the HTC Touch Diamond.

HTC TouchFlo 2.0 Leaked, Covers Up Windows Mobile Even Better?

HTC's TouchFLO UI was great because it was one of the first "skin Windows Mobile to make it usable" applications—even if it isn't quite as good as PointUI. This supposed TouchFlo 2.0 upgrade looks much improved, even if it is still early in the development stage. If you're feeling brave you can actually try and install… » 1/31/08 2:28pm 1/31/08 2:28pm
