Windows Phone 7: Android 3.0 Gingerbread and HTC Sense Update

By Alan Ng - Jul 25, 2010

We have some important news for those of you who are planning to pick up a Windows Phone 7 handset later on this year, as we are hearing reports that the OS can be customized after all, with HTC interested in building their Sense UI on top of Microsoft’s OS.

As reported from Engadget, Microsoft originally stated that Windows Phone 7 devices wouldn’t be able to be modified by manufacturers. However, it looks like the Windows Phone 7 OS won’t be completely locked after all, and some upcoming HTC devices may come with HTC Sense on top of WP7.

Furthermore, HTC’s Drew Bamford has even hinted that Android 3.0 Gingerbread may incorporate Windows Phone 7 features into their future handsets – in some sort of crazy hybrid handset no doubt.

What are your thoughts on this? Does the idea of Android, HTC Sense and WP7 combined interest you or not? More details over at Engadget.

    I don't think there is any substance to any of this – bringing out a hybrid of WP7 and gingerbread 3, before even either of them is out ?

    What? can you read? Go back to Engadget and re-read the article, where the hell does it say WP7 and Android are combining? Really, you write news for a site and got the facts THAT wrong?

    worst news ever!! Bloatware is starting to ruin Android and now the way is set for it to ruin W7. Do you see random UI skinned over the top of a Iphone OS.

    Microsoft.
    Brand Identity.
