Hmmm, it does look a little slow (is that because this is an nearly finished version, or will MS have to work that out over firmware updates???). Speed aside, I like the reminiscence of the Superbar integrated into the menu. The overall design of the UI shoots for the hopes to be more user-friendly, but we will have to see how that fares for HTC when released.

Well this is the next generation tech or u can say this way Future technology,But this technology will be implemented in other mobile companies like Nokia,SonyEricsson,Samsung etc.....I think Nokia or Samsung will take this TouchFlo 3D in their next or Future Touch Screen phones. :)

Seems like HTC steal their ideas from XDA-Devolopers which is no bad thing but many of the features and UI touches already done by XDA-Dev...

Well at least HTC is doing what the customers wants.

I don't know what to make of it. It looks like the hybrid son of the original TouchFLO and the Sense UI! It's sort of like Winmo crossed with Android sort of thing. But it's still the same; a few icons to the right and a few shortcuts here and there; nothing really innovative. HTC only seems to be trying to take advantage of the attention Sense is getting...

Very nice. I would just like the time part to be smaller so there could be 6 shortcuts instead of 3.

My brothers HTC HD is not laggy at all, it's very smooth and responsive following finger moves straight away. Guess this is just a testing hardware.

Hm, it's still in beta I guess, I believe in final version it would be fast.

It really sucks, not impressive at all (same old boring UI) and most of the time in the videos it only showed sliding at the bottom back and forth, yawning..

I think the touchflo 3d is a really good interface which lets us all enjoy a different kind of fun. Like the iphone interface we have some good features but the touchflo 3d is ins own league. With the new 2.6 ver out we can be assured HTC mobiles will be coming up in the market again.

looks beautiful, but like others say, its very very slow. Nothing more painful than to wait for your picture gallery to load...

And @ second video, that guy sounds like a salesmen.
