HTC’s Tablet UI Will be Known as “Sensation”?

According to a trademark filed over in Europe on the 19th, HTC is looking to take control of the words “HTC Sensation” leading many to believe that this will be the name for their tablet skin.  “Sensation” could work.  We all know that HTC’s custom UI for their phones goes by the name “Sense” so why not bring in a new off-shoot for their line of tablets that are expected to be here in the first half of 2011?

Here is a clip from 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.

What’s interesting, is the fact that I’m OK with seeing this filing and have no problem with HTC wanting to put a skin on their tablets.  Sense UI is about as polished as it gets, and in some cases actually enhances their devices.  While we know that instant pain is initiated at the mention of Motorola’s Blur, we actually don’t mind Sense.

    There have been so many android craplets flooding the market. I can’t wait for HTC to finally do this right and give android the tablet it deserves.

    I agree. Ever since I rooted my D2 and put on fission I’ve been happier, but I still miss the polish of Sense. Stock just isn’t pretty, especially in the email and messaging apps.

    So…
    I’ve been running Liberty on my X for some time now…
    And I’ll admit…I’m not disappointed in ASOP…
    But I DO think BLUR does a decent job as well.
    The contact widgets were super nice.
    And the BLUR camera/gallery are superb.
    Facebook integration was also a plus.

    I’ve (obviously) found work-arounds and re-hashes of my old set up…
    But it kinda’ irks me how much people act like blur is the end of android.
    LOCKED bootloaders, however…can go to hell.

    Sidenote:
    A tipster at XDA turned me on to “Animated Widget Contact Pro” in the market…
    Which is very nice, for those looking for an alternative to the BLUR contact widgets.

      Why are you going on about your love for blur on a post about HTC? That makes zero sense. By the way blur sucks.
