While HTC made clear in an earlier statement, that the company will continue with HTC Sense on Windows Phone 7, Microsoft made also clear that it will not accepting any GUI changes anymore, as it was accepted before with Windows Mobile. Therefore it was somewhat clear that HTC Sense might become a compilation of applications and maybe even services which access yesterday's announced HTCSense.com service. And now, a recently uploaded YouTube video shows what is expected to be a HTC confidential demonstration of what HTC Sense could look like on a Windows Phone 7 smartphone where HTC Sense links into the Start screen with own tiles which open dedicated applications.

The demoed applications are Notes, Weather and Stocks. While weather and stocks are typical HTC Sense applications, Notes is new but definitely makes sense since Windows Phone 7 isn't featuring a Outlook compatible Notes application anymore but features OneNote instead.

While the HTC Sense demo is nicely animated, it totally breaks with the GUI concept of Windows Phone 7 and doesn't follows any Microsoft recommendations. Therefore it's questionable if this is really a final Windows Phone 7 HTC Sense preview or just an earlier concept demonstration.

UPDATE: Looks like someone spilled beans he shouldn't? First the video was removed from public access by making it private again and after it was has been completely removed by the user. Well, this could be indeed an indication that the video is/was real!
UPDATE 2: Okay, fixed! We found YouTube's copy of the video in the browser cache!

Cheers ~ Arne

I love HCT Sense on Windows Mobile and Android but only because both systems don’t have a nice user experience. IMHO HTC goes too far with Sense on Windows Phone 7. I would prefer a more consistent user interface; similar to what Seesmic showed with his Windows Phone 7 client!
