We recently reported on the Android powered HTC Hero’s Sense UI being ported to Windows Mobile devices and we’re back with a much longer, more detailed video. This time, we will be focusing on the device that the ported “Hero build” was originally intended for, the HTC Vogue, also known as the Touch.
Rory, from ThisMobileLife, was kind enough to record a video walk-through of one of Zenulator’s full Hero builds for us. Remember, there is a full build with some rough patches and a faster “minimal build.” Be sure to check out the project homepage to keep up with the latest builds, if you’re interested.
The lengthy video above shows Rory switching from Windows Mobile 6.5 to boot up of Android and the Sense UI on his Vogue. After the device finishes booting, he walks us through some uses of desktop features, the menu launcher, use of the dialer, Marketplace, use of the soft keyboard and internet navigation. Because this project is still in development, the full build does have some slowdown and glitches, but there is clearly a lot of potential.
How many of you would want to run Sense UI on your Windows Mobile device? I wouldn’t mind having the option, let’s hope the great minds at XDA can expand the builds to other, more current devices as well.
Update: Zenulator has informed me that the build in the video is actually a recent, but slightly older build. “The new full hero build will be based on the current build I have out. So all that lag and system not responding pop ups are gone.” Great news for those who were concerned of lag.
(Thanks for the video, Rory!)
