Yesterday we ran across a video of HTC Sense running on Windows Phone 7 as a hub over at Pocketpt.net. Apparently, HTC has requested that the site pull the video, giving things a little more credibility.
The site commented (translated), "Unfortunately, HTC did not like to have seen the video of its new interface released before it was officially presented, and I was warned that this could have legal repercussions for both the PocketPT either to the author of the article. To avoid any legal embroglio decided to remove it."
While this video was pulled, if you missed it, the demo video is still circulating (for now).

a bit late for that report :)
No surprise here, if it's real like they were saying of course it'd get pulled quick. On the other hand all we really got to see was the weather app.
I wasn't a fan anyway. It seems like they wanna put there Apps on the OS but don't wanna make any real effort to fit the "Metro" theme. No doubt people will like it. I won't.
i'd love it if it were pulled because it was an old version of Sense, and the new version featured more conservative transitions. i'd hate to think that HTC's fallen this deep into OS beautification, and i'm talking specifically about the weather module. i also really wish Microsoft had created recommended guidelines for things tile icons. There's a few icons from MS that don't follow the Metro aesthetic, but overall they create a cohesive look. Then a you have a third party like HTC that comes along and brings their own style to Metro and it completely clashes with it.
i agree that all those animations are totally useless. simple is and fast im looking for in a smartphone. i want to spend as little time looking at something on a small screen.
the animations suck.. the clouds covering the important information would annoy me no end!
