HTC clarifies Sense 3.0 issue (Here goes hoping, again)

Surely, if you have seen videos of HTC’s new devices, you are wondering if this version of Sense (3.0) will be coming to your device. This morning, everyone’s heart has been broken by the Twitter response that HTC gave to one of its followers, informing that Sense 3.0 would only be available on new devices, like the HTC Sensation, the EVO 3D, and the HTC Flyer.

After seeing that we were all getting our protesting tools ready, HTC has just made a “clarification” about this issue, kind of leaving us back in uncertainty, which seems to be where manufacturers like to have us. Apparently, “certain” aspects of Sense 3.0 will not be available to “some” older devices, but they are working on the parts that actually will.

Whether HTC is just trying to prevent the rise of the masses, or this was truly a mistake, it is something that we will have to see. In the meanwhile, if you have an HTC device, stay tuned to know if you will be getting some of those sweet Sense 3.0 features, that sweet looking lock-screen would be nice to have!

    Nobody is fighting for a overlay on their phones what people want is sense 3.0 but at what expense??? You can’t have something for nothing the new htc sense 3.0 is being used on devices that are running 1.2 ghz dualcore processors exactly what they can take out of htc sense and place in an evo 4g that has 512 mb of ram and 1ghz single core processor would be what??? Htc should not have to go through all that headache. Evo 4g launched with sense 1.0 nothing else has come our why since June 4th 2010 as far as sense updates so just update it to the current sense 2.0 that the thunderbolt and other htc phones have and call it a day. Sense 3.0 should have higher handset requirements for usage and the old singlecore 512/768 mb of ram devices just don’t fit the bill any longer. Evo 3d is here and a new member of the Evo family on sprint needs our support and I will be their day one for the Evo 3d just as I was for the original Evo 4g last June 4th 2010..

      Don’t be hoodwicked into believing that the current gen or at least the 2nd gen Snapdragons aka mt4g, thunderbolt, inspire etc. cant run Sense 3.0 with ease. What incentive does htc have in back porting these devices? It’s all a marketing thing. They want you to buy the latest and greatest.

    These guys have talked to the UK part of HTC. Perhaps part-transferred to older phones?

    Oh come on, the Desire HD is a brandnew phone. How can it possibly not get Sense 3.0? At least, I’d like to have the cool Switch Screen 3D Effect, the Weather Widget and the awesome Lockscreen. At least the Lockscreen should not be to hard to port on the DHD

    The two worthwhile things about 3.0 are the ability to roll through the home screens continuously and the connection settings in the window dropdown. The first isn’t really a big deal. The second would be very useful. Hopefully there will be an app that allows that.

    If you want a similar 3.0 lockscreen you should have downloaded widgetlocker a long time ago. So so useful.
