HTC Sense 3.0 UI Not to Come to Older Models; Official Tweet Brings Disappointment

April 15, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Well, this could be a little disappointing. However, we don’t think there’s reason for us to keep it a secret. HTC has officially decided that their unique HTC Sense 3.0 UI will not be rolling out to older devices. A tweet from HTC’s official Twitter account has confirmed this.

HTC has raised hardware issues as the reason for the inability of Sense 3.0 to run on older devices. In a gist, the tweet means that if you want to try your hands on the Sense 3.0 User Interface, you will have to go for new devices from HTC – which means you may have to spend money on an EVO 3D, a Sensation 4G or a Flyer.

The news, we think, is double-edged. It confirms that the new User Interface from HTC is all set to hit the smartphone community. At the same time, it is very much disappointing that devices like EVO 4G won’t get updated to the new UI. However, there are ways to pass over hurdles. Right?

Despite tweeting the probability that old devices not getting Sense 3.0, HTC has later clarified that the issue is with certain features of the new UI. So the company might want to look at making necessary arrangements so that owners of the old HTC devices too will get a taste of the new UI.

This might come about by way of rolling out the hardware-compatible features of Sense 3.0 to them. That is, indeed, a consoling gesture, we think. What do you feel? Do you know how the Sense UI works? Hit the play button to watch the video  below:
