Default Making Sense For WP7

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://blogs.forbes.com/elizabethwoyke/2010/12/23/htc-we-will-customize-windows-phone-7-over-time/' target='_blank'>http://blogs.forbes.com/elizabethwo...ne-7-over-time/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"One of the great debates surrounding Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 operating system focuses on whether the design guidelines the company set for its manufacturer partners allow for adequate expression. How can companies like Samsung, LG and Dell keep their Windows Phone 7 (WP7) handsets looking cool and different when Microsoft specifies the basic button layout, display resolution and user interface framework these companies should use?"</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1293496462.usr14226.jpg" style="border: 0px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>HTC is hoping to bring it's Sense UI to WP7 - it's one way to differentiate its WP7 phones from everyone else's. They've even begun an ambitious project to bring Windows Live type services to all their Sense enabled phones across different OS types (<a href="https://www.htcsense.com/" target="_blank">here </a>and <a href="http://www.htc.com/sea/press.aspx?id=146350&amp;lang=1033" target="_blank">here</a> for reference), starting with Android. I'm not sure if this isn't really just wishful thinking on their part, given the determined way Microsoft has been protecting the consistent user interaction and performance that WP7 offers across the board. But what do you guys think? Would bringing the full Sense experience to WP7 make sense (sorry for the pun)?</p>
