HTC Denies Sense UI At Launch

Even though we’ve seen multiple leaks about Sense UI For Windows Phone 7, including a very convincing video, HTC says that Sense won’t be used immediately. Says HTC CEO Peter Chou:

“Initially, we don’t have time to bring things on top of that. But over time we will innovate on top of that to provide some HTC experience.

“I don’t think we would do complete Sense UI on Windows Phone 7. However, I will say that we will innovate differently to improve the experience and to get some HTC unique and differentiated experience on Windows Phone 7 in the future.”
Frankly, the less of this sort of stuff, the better. It’s bloated, doesn’t fit the look of WP7, and has caused significant fragmentation on Android. Trust Microsoft on this one.
