Espresso’s Sense UI Captured on Video

While most of us were putting the finishing touches on wrapping gifts, some lucky fella spent his Christmas Eve playing with the new Espresso build of HTC’s Sense UI on his Hero.  And in the spirit of giving, they decided to record the experience.  While the video is somewhat shaky and jumpy, we still get a sense (see what we did there?) for how HTC has evolved their experience.

CES 2010 is merely days away so we’re hoping to see this in an official capacity soon!

Thanks to all who sent this in to us.

Android Hides in Army of “Good Guys” in Swiss iPad App Advertisement

We received a pair of tips this morning about an advertisement for the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation’s iPad application. Now, we don’t have any idea what those guys do over there, but we get the sense they are the NPR of Switzerland (Correct us if you know better). Watch the short video below and you’ll see their version of the history of Switzerland, acted out with cute little cartoon-y characters. The clip, designed to help pitch their iPad app, has an awesome easter egg.

    I have to admit that i like the original version of sense much more.
    Especially I don’t like the border around the icons and the overall “squared” look the interface has now.

    I agree. New menu looks more iPhonish, I preferred the old one

    My god these buttons look awful. HTC really isn't doing anyone a favour with this 'improvement'. I do hope one of their designers realizes this before they ship the new product.

    1 (tiny) improvement: the recently opened list in the pulldown bar; handy, better than the long press of the home button.
    But besides that, the bubble-squares are a step in the wrong direction. Hopefully HTC listens to it's customers / web fanbase and will remove the bubbles.

    Those silly bubbles over the icons are absolutely hideous… PLEASE someone come to their senses and get rid of them, or I'm afraid I will be ditching Sense
