We know two things about HTC
- They know how popular Sense 2.5 has become
- They move pretty fast
We know this because a new build of Sense 2.5 (1922; last leak was 1921) officially supports landscape now. Of course the excitement has lead to it being cooked into some GSM ROMs and it looks to be making its way to CDMA Touch Pro 2's in the next 24-48hrs.
So what does this mean? Is HTC doing this for an eventual HD2 with a slider keyboard? Or are they just doing the obvious: updating their UI for various future devices, including ones with slide-out QWERTYs? We'll go with the latter for now as this seems like an obvious progression of the TouchFLO/Sense paradigm.
