HTC Sense Heads to Windows 7 Mobile Devices Later This Year

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.

Reports Forbes:

"Microsoft has taken firmer control of the core experience [in Windows Phone 7], but we can still innovate," Drew Bamford, head of HTC's user experience design team, told Forbes. According to him, the forthcoming version of Sense would be quite different from the solution present on the company's current Windows Phone 6.5-based devices. The existing Sense was designed to integrate with most of the platform's core apps. "We won't be able to replace as much of the core Windows Phone experience, but we will augment it," Bamford says.


The comments fall in line with what HTC has said of the OS in recent months; mainly, that while they would be unable to modify the OS itself, they could certainly add features (hence, "augment"). [Forbes via Softpedia]

Ok, someone needs to sit down with HTC and have a gods damn intervention.

HTC, we love you, but fuck your Sense. It was great for a while, but it ain't necessary anymore. And it's keeping me from getting Froyo on my Evo. So stop it!
