    HTC's Eric Lin gives us a walk-through of some of HTC's latest handsets, which includes the recently unveiled HTC HD Mini, Legend, and Desire. The company had unveiled those handsets at Mobile World Congress, and we're jealous of our European counterparts who will be getting those snazzy handsets. Lin also talked about the design philosophies that have been carried forward by the One & Company acquisition. One of the design element include the "hidden powerful" of the colorful back underneath the battery cover of the HTC HD Mini and the new Sprint HTC EVO 4G. One & Company was also ...

    HTC has stated in its press release that the company is working with Microsoft on bringing HTC-made Windows Phone 7 Series smartphones to the market, citing that Microsoft has done a great job with the OS and UI: "The revolutionary new software offers a fresh approach to smartphones by bringing web content and applications together to create a phone experience that is very personal, relevant and connected." However, HTC doesn't stop there. CEO Peter Chou went on to comment that the company will still bring the "HTC experience" to consumers. Whether that experience is in the excellent ...

    We're expecting a lot of cool new stuff in the upcoming T-Mobile HTC HD2. Chief among them are the Documents tab and now the new Reader tab, which we show off in this video thanks to a ROM from XDA. The Reader tab integrates with Borders book store (though currently, you're not able to log on) so that you can download eBooks right to your device. The reading experience is actually quite nice. You can adjust text size with multitouch, and changing pages is as easy as swiping left or right. Also new to this ROM is the use of Swype for text entry, which we previously demonstrated.

    In this video, we take a look at one of the better mods for the home screen in Sense 2.5. It extends functionality by giving you access to tons of quick links via sliding panels and also by displaying more appointment information. It's currently in beta, so it's hit or miss depending on which build of Sense 2.5 you're running. The creator, Co0kieMonster, will likely come out with separate releases that are compatible with different builds of 2.5. Stay tuned to Co0kieMonster's thread on XDA-developers for a final, more stable version of the mod or grab the first beta release from one of his ...

    We're beginning to see the ways that WM 6.5.3 can be customized. Over at XDA, user Dark Ninja has created a nice theme that changes the bottom and top bar to white, plus all in-program menus. It's easy to apply...just run the CAB, reboot your device, then turn on the theme by going to Today screen settings. In the thread there are versions for all screen resolutions. I tried it on an HD2 and it worked great. (via: XDA)

    One feature that's always been missing in all versions of TouchFLO 3D and Sense is the ability to delete emails directly from the "Mail" tab. It's been a bit perplexing because this simple option would save users from having to enter and exit the standard Windows Mobile messaging window on many occasions. We all receive spam or messages that don't really need responses from time to time, so it only makes "sense" that this feature should've been implemented from the very beginning. Thankfully, the latest leaked build of Sense 2.5 (2011) addresses this issue by adding it as an option under ...

    During the holidays, we saw a Christmas themed animated wallpaper for HTC Sense 2.5. Well, it seems more users have created their own animated wallpapers since then. As with the Christmas wallpaper, these also use one of the default animated wallpapers as a base. There are two main threads over at XDA and both already have a growing collection of designs available. Unforseenenemy has a thread with animated wallpapers using Windows logos, playing cards, Bud Light logos and other images. They will replace the default circles for that particular wallpaper, but can be reverted if you choose to ...

    Here's a quick video about what's new in the Windows Mobile 6.5 ROM upgrades for the T-Mobile Dash 3G and Touch Pro2. Of special note is new support for Visual Voicemail on T-Mobile. The Dash 3G doesn't get much new besides an upgraded Internet Explorer, MarketPlace, MyPhone, Facebook, and widget support. The Touch Pro2 gets a new HTC Sense UI with automatic location detection for weather, but not the animated backgrounds from HTC's 6.5 upgrade to the Touch Pro2. Also, I'm happy to report that the Touch Pro2's Voice Command over Bluetooth support has been improved. It now will route Voice ...

    If you're running HTC Sense 2.5 and miss having a call history/missed calls link on the Home tab, there's a way to add it – thanks to XDA. The hack also comes with some other surprises. It adds extra quick links (16 instead of 9) and applies the Home tab wallpaper (whichever you select) to all tabs. Please note that the creator mentions that it's for Manila 2.5.1921.XXXX, so it may not work correctly on other builds. The latest official ROM released by HTC for the HD2 has Manila 2.5.1921 on it. I haven't had any compatibility issues using the hack on a Touch Pro2 and the changes ...

    In this video we give you a tour of the Leo T-Mobile USA ROM that was recently leaked and now ported to the Touch Pro2 (XDA). As you can see from the video, in most tabs of Sense, the landscape orientation looks quite good. But in others, like Twitter and Footprints, it's not quite complete. If you want a closer look at the cool new Documents tab, check out our demo!

    If the cloudy weather animation on HTC Sense 2.5 is becoming a little too familiar for you lately, there's a way to freshen it up a bit by adding a splash of color. Hubie, from XDA-developers, has created a hack that gives the plain white clouds a light blue tint. This instantly gives the animation a new look and can even help make the clouds pop more on certain backgrounds. It's not for everyone, but users who enjoy coordinating their themes with matching colors throughout the interface will probably enjoy this hack. Grab the CAB for WVGA/VGA/QVGA devices from XDA-developers. Light blue ...

    Last week, we discovered a very useful tool for switching between HTC Sense/TouchFLO 3D and Mobile Shell 3.5.x with a single tap of a shortcut. This beats the heck out of having to manually disable and enable them when you feel like jumping from one to the other. Well, Darkness231, from PPCGeeks, has decided to improve his script. Now, it brings more choices to the table. The new version calls up a prompt that lets you pick between Sense/TF3D, Mobile Shell 3.5.x, Titanium, PointUI, Androkkid, or the classic Today screen. You will find multiple scripts below in CAB format for easy ...

    We now have a better understanding of how the Documents tab works on the leaked T-Mobile USA HD2 ROM, thanks to the video below from HDBlog.it. The function will search your entire device for documents...the video shows Excel, Word, and PDF documents being called up. Then, you can flip through the live previews (nice!) and tap on a document that you want to open. You can also hit the left soft key for "All Documents" or the right soft key for "Search." Also shown in the video are some other improvements in the new ROM, such as an improved music library. (via: wmpu)

    TouchFLO 3D/Manila gives you the ability to shut off tabs that you don't use, which can reduce the number of buttons along the bottom (nice to keep things tidy). Also, running fewer tabs will give you back a bit of RAM. That said, we're curious: of the tabs that you can shut on or off, which TF3D tabs do you use the most, and which ones do you disable? My list is below. Use the most: - Mail - Messages - Calendar - Weather - Photos & Video - Twitter - Stocks Use the least (and keep off): - Music (don't use my phone for listening to music) - Footprints (don't travel enough) - Internet (I ...

    We recently posted about a Christmas theme for HTC Sense 2.5 which included a custom wallpaper, slider and icons. Now, you can make it a "White Christmas" by adding a wintry animated background to the Home tab in Sense. It appears that the look is achieved by replacing one of the animated wallpapers that comes preloaded on Sense, the one with colorful circles, with one that has snowflakes. It also has some frost graphics in the top corners and Christmas lights on the bottom. The animated wallpaper was created by cmylxgo for NRG's "EnergyROM Leo," but it seems to work just fine with other ...
