Sense HD

We're all waiting to see what the Desire HD and it's new version of HTC Sense UI brings to the table, but thanks to leaks and ingenious hackers, we can get a pretty good idea of what to expect.  Some of the changes are subtle, some not so much, and some are huge.  For you hands-on types, you can check it out for yourself on your Droid Incredible, Evo 4G, HTC Desire, and now the Nexus One.  Be warned, it's not ready for prime-time yet.  Data, camera, and WiFi are pretty well borked on the Nexus, for example.  At least at the time this was written they were ... those hackers are fast!

Follow past the break to see a look at many of the new goodies. [Xda-developers -- Evo -- Desire -- Incredible -- Nexus] Thanks jlevy73 for the Nexus One tip!

A quick look at the new Sense 'HD' on the Nexus One [video]

Nice video, Jerry. One thing I saw in another video that is really nice, is a change in the browser. At full page view, you can pinch to bring up open windows, instead of having to go to menu>windows. Having to do that is the only issue I have with the stock browser. Glad they fixed it.

I second that. Always wished for that feature when pinch-preview all was available for the home screens but not for browser windows.

Thanks for the review Jerry. Once that gets a little more stable I'd like to let that fly on my evo. Contacts and recent history widgets look very cool. Hope HTC does official releases for N1/Dinc/EVO. Can't imagine that even if they do new sense on every device going forward that they'd build a new site for it then freeze out their base.

Me too! The port to the Nexus One doesn't. I asked around, and get both yes, and no. Now that the launcher bar is easy to theme, landscape mode could be great in Sense.

I just installed this through ROM Manager from IncredibleDoes. It works quite nicely AND I have access to HTCsense.com. I'm surprised.

Love the new look and feel of Sense HD on my Incredible! But I went back to my Skyraider ROM because despite having a non functioning camcorder the Sense HDs camcorder and camera don't work and I'd rather have 1 then none. If this is just me please let me know but I couldn't get either to work. I will 100% love to reload sense HD once the bugs are all worked out.
