HTC Announces Smart Phones Stripped Of Sense 3.0

HTC has announced that Sense 3.0 will be available in a stripped down version for other HTC smartphones.

The news first officially broke out yesterday in the form of a tweet by the company which stated that Sense 3.0, an updated version of the Sense UI, won’t be available on older HTC devices.

HTC’s move wasn't a surprise as the company hadn't shown much enthusiasm about merging this technology with their existing devices.

HTC later explained that the decision had been taken, "Due to Sense's hardware requirements, only our newest devices (Flyer, EVO 3D, Sensation) will be able to support it."

This means that users of the Desire S and Desire HD as well as other older HTC phones will not be able to benefit from the newer technology.

HTC reportedly told the TechRadar that it was assessing the possibility of porting a few selected elements across to some of its high-end products like the HTC Desire S ( (opens in new tab)).

“Clarification: There are aspects of the latest HTC Sense that won't work on some of our previous devices. We are working to incorporate other aspects that will. Stay tuned,” the company later said in a tweet.
