A trademark filed in Europe on Jan 19th 2011 shows HTC filing for the term “HTC Sensation”. Is this the new and improved UI for HTC tablets said to be released this Spring? Very likely. We’re not sure about other HTC rumors yet, like the HTC Scribe we brought out a few weeks ago, but this definately points to some new action from HTC, as we know their UI for smartphones is called “HTC Sense”.
Here’s part of the filing;
Mobile phones, smartphones, wireless phones, wireless devices, portable computers and personal digital assistants, computer hardware and software for mobile, portable and wireless devices; user interface software; computer hardware and software for user interfacing, telecommunications and telecommunications services; computer hardware and software for transmitting and receiving voice, image, data, audio, video and multimedia content; wireless modems; headsets, headsets with wireless transmission function, connection cables, cradles, mounts, face plates, batteries, power adaptors, chargers, cases, in-vehicle chargers, in-vehicle holders, remote controls, keyboards, microphones, loudspeakers, leather pouches for mobile phones.
This could be great as the HTC Sense UI was received by users with praise, where the custom UI from Motorola was seen as degrading the original functionality of Android OS.
