HTC Sense, Android 2.1, pinch-to-zoom and a whole lot of Lady Gaga

Sure, everybody and their mother is getting pinch-to-zoom these days. But here's one you probably haven't seen yet: It's Android 2.1 and HTC's Sense interface on a Hero, and you can pinch-to-zoom within Sense itself. That lets you see all of your home panels at the same time, and it's pretty darn cool, if you ask us. Check out the video after the break, and skip to about 6 minutes in, unless you're really in need of some Poker Face. [HTCSource]

  • Ooh, that looks handy. Paying attention, Moto?
  • The Hero is Android perfected and it is an excellent phone. I would recommend it over the Palm Pre and, dare I say it, something like the iPhone 3G. $180 isn’t too much to pay for the best Android phone on the market
  • retard is having problems with it
  • Ok nice, now we need a nexus one like phone with this for Sprint!
  • Looks about as useful as a 3rd nut. It is pretty though which seems to be all you need to get by these days.
  • i like...
  • 1. Gestures in the dialer = win
    2. Who knows someone who can read Mandarin?
    3. Phil, please leave MWC when it's finished and head east. Someone needs some pointers on making good "leak" videos :)
  • YAY!! No more ugly bubbles around icons!
  • I don't have room on my desk to turn my laptop on its side. Can someone tell me what's going on in this video?
  • Sweet. Where can I get the leaked Hero version ;) jk
  • 8:41 wasted moments of my life I can never get back. If it takes over 5 minutes to just boot the damn thing screw it. Default Android is catching up quickly and senseUI has lost a lot of ground to it visually, as well as usability. Couple that with people running fragmented old versions of Android just for senseUI. DO NOT WANT.
  • It was installing the update for 5 minutes. It was the first time it had ever been run on the phone. Its not going to boot slower than the pre (I believe thats impossible).
  • Then for the love of god edit your video to reflect what is relevant.
  • Who's great idea was it to use a video hosting service half the world can't use? Someone please youtube this so I can watch it!
  • Fot those in UK, who can't watch it:
  • Handwriting recognition too!!
