Here’s the good news: newer smartphones from HTC will feature gorgeous new UI tweaks and other enhancements as part of HTC’s new Sense 3.0 overlay for Android. Here’s the bad news: the millions of Android fans who own one of HTC’s recent smartphones will not have the pleasure of experiencing the new software until they purchase new handsets. HTC confirmed on Wednesday that only its forthcoming devices like the HTC Sensation, HTC EVO 3D and HTC Flyer tablet will get Sense 3.0. Other devices — even ones as recent as the Desire HD — will not be upgradable to the new software. Thankfully, Android has one of the strongest enthusiast communities in the mobile space, so those of you who don’t mind tinkering can be sure we’ll see HTC Sense 3.0 on plenty of cooked ROMs in the near future.
