Confirming what we already knew about Android, a video has shown HTC’s Sense user interface on an HTC Dream (T-Mobile G1) phone. Sense is officially available only on the HTC Hero Android phone at the moment; however, a pesky little thing like sanctioned availability isn’t going to stop phone modifiers from having a little fun and loading it onto their G1′s.
As seen in this video, root users can flash their phone with the SuperHERO ROM and have HTC’s new interface at their fingertips. We’ve already seen videos depicting earlier builds of Hero, but this video provides another look at the many functions and visual changes made to Android for the Hero.
The Hero ROM was optimized for the original device, so there will be potential sacrifices in features, speed, and function when loading into onto different devices. Though HTC is thinking about offering Sense on current Android devices, it probably won’t be seen officially on “with Google” phones like the G1 and myTouch. Drooling will probably as close as many G1/Magic users come to getting Sense unless they root their phones.
