HTC Sense as we know it is NOT coming to Windows Phone 7

Wow talk about misleading and linkbait news title and information (I’m talking about Engadget’s an others…)…I’ll just make it clear form the get go: HTC Sense as we know it IS NOT coming to Windows Phone 7. Here’s what HTC’s Drew Bradford said:

“Microsoft has taken firmer control of the core experience [in Windows Phone 7], but we can still innovate,” “We won’t be able to replace as much of the core Windows Phone experience, but we will augment it,”

HTC will only be able to ad its own tilesand hubs to the Metro UI (an no more than 60Mb of ad-ons/apps) nothing more. So there’s basically no news at all here. The same applies to what he says about Google’s Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) update which is rumored to have stricter UI guidelines:

“Google may focus more on improving the user interface on the stock Android [software], but I don’t think they’ll preclude manufacturer customization,”

Again, nothing we didn’t already know..

    Oh don’t bother with engadget, they probably haven’t any other negative thing to post and thought it may be negative.

    Engadget needs to deploy a minefield preparing for the official WP7 launch. This “no news” gives them an angle for their upcoming negative review of WP7: “…something like HTC Sense would have improve this otherwise iOS wannabe”. It’s Engadget, don’t take them seriously.

    Just look at their preview of WP7, where iJosh, Chief Appler, says that WP7 is not a full OS, but only a rough sketch, only because it lacks 2 or 3 features now present in other smartphone OSes (added in the past few months). I remember the “revolutionary” iOS when it launched in 2007 lacked no less than 20 key smartphone features present in other phones, that didn’t stop the positive welcome it received, or sales.

    No biggie, this is just all about search engine rankings. See I’ve been posting about WM7/WP7 ever since I launched this site nearly a year ago. Back then when you searched for something WM7 related on Google, MobileTechWorld was usually on the first or second page. But once bigger sites started posting about it they automaticaly shot up to the first page.This is what happened before the announcement back in January/Feb (remember all those baseless rumors? LG Appolo? HTC Obsission? 2 versions of the OS etc…). And now the same is happening before the launch in a few months. The more they post about a particular subject the higher they will be ranked (that’s why you saw a long string of “no news” posts latetly like the “Bing is the on Search engine on WP7″, or the OEMS roster stuff that everybody who actually watched the WPC keynote videos already knew about more than 10 days ago..). For my part I always try to post about facts and not much about rumors. I was the first to post the real Windows Phone 7 specs one week before the official announcement, the first to get an official statement about the lack of copy/paste, the first to show you hands-on action of the latest preview builds and gaming action , to confirm with HTC that 720P recoding was coming to the HTC Desire etc… I’ll keep it that way.
