Looks UGLY!! Why do manufactures spend time and money to make things ugly?? They should leave it as pure ICS, which looks 1000x better.

What this post displays is ics with a skin of sense ui. There is no way that HTC would go from a beautiful user interface to something looking like that. The app tray is not stock ics, not is it the sense tray, the quick links from the lock screen are also not stock, why you would have there apps in one launcher I have no idea.
Let's wait for HTC to release details instead of guessing what they might do.

Once again comments left here are very dubious in their origin and honesty.
HTC sense is more than a wallpaper, I have used it with my desire hd and now sensation xl. I handle different androids, iPhones and other devices daily - none of them compete with sense in usability and functionality although they all have their merits.
Get over yourselves and some of you find a proper job, if you haven't got anything good to say, don't say anything at all.

first Samsung showcased TW that ruins ICS, and now comes HTC with even uglier Sense skin! Oh well guess Galaxy Nexus will sell in piles as well as Nexus S! I'm selling my SGS and going for incredible affordable Nexus S!

After seeing this, for the first time since I've started thinking about my new smartphone, I'm looking at more options than simply HTC. It's beyond ugly, it makes me think they're not attempting to understand what consumers want.

Well, I'm not a fan of screwing up ICS with these launcher etc. changes - and this is easily the worst change I've seen.
Even TouchWiz or Timescape look much better. Before, I liked Sense, but that was because stock Android didn't look that good, but now it just looks better the way it is originally designed by Google.
