HTC will bring HTC Sense to Windows Phone 7 and Android 3.0 While Microsoft has long said they want to standardize the user experience of Windows Phone 7, HTC has said today that they plan to bring HTC Sense to their upcoming WP7 devices, skinning the smartphones like they have Android devices.
Additionally, HTC is moving forward with the Sense UI for Android 3.0 (Gingerbread).

Says Drew Bramford of HTC about the Sense UI for WP7: "We won't be able to replace as much of the core Windows Phone experience, but we will augment it."

In regards to Android 3.0, Google is rumored to be creating a user experience that will negate the need for extra skins, making Sense, MotoBLUR and TouchWiz, among others, useless.

Google, however, will likely not prohibit UI skins for 3.0, whereas Microsoft has been a bit more staunch on their stance.
