Microsoft won't allow UI mods on Windows Phone 7. That hasn't stopped HTC from bringing their trademarked Sense UI feel to WP7 though - instead of replacing the homescreen outright, they added apps that replicate a lot of current Sense UI's features.
This videos could potentially be a fake - but a lot of work went into it, too much for an Internet prank. If they are real though, Sense enabled Windows Phone 7 from HTC will raise eye-candy to levels seen only in prototypes.
Here's the first video - everything happens with smooth 3D animations. Everything. The notes application is wonderfully ornate and the weather app adds fly through clouds animation to the already elaborate setup.
And another video - this time the software is running on an actual device. It shows the HTC Hub, which is a lot closer to the current Windows Mobile Sense UI look, weather clock and all.
Some of the apps look like cute toys - like the "Loves me, loves me not" game and that app with the flashlight icon (they don't show it, but what could it be other than a flashlight app).
As cool as those animations are (and they are very cool), on a day to day basis they'll probably become an irritating delay more than a feature. Most likely they can be turned off, when you get bored with them. Oh, and was that copy and paste support we saw? Windows Phone 7 doesn't have one usually.
wow that is quite a dumb statement. Just because little kids play with it doesnt mean us pros have to play with it as well. iPhone parts are similar to tons of phones out there. So what makes it better? Does it make it better for you to fit in the cr...
Nothing is better dan the iphone..iphone is the best gaming and internet phone ever also iphone is the fastest of all the devices out der Windows fon dont stand even near it Also wp7 sucks
WOW...windows 7 looks amazing...if HTC can do upgrade for android phones....it can also upgrade windows phone......PLEASE WHEN WINDOWS 7 IS AVAILABLE UPGRADE Windows 6.5 to windows 7.
