I seem to remember reading that the inc2 would not be updated to sense 3 - perhaps others can confirm? Assuming the demos of sense 3 that I've seen are accurate I don't feel it's any big deal.

Apparently you need a dual core to run Sense 3.0, but I have seen several phones run it that are single core. Of course they were buggy and it was forced to the device instead of being made for it. But regardless, it still worked.

Personally, I would like it, but have Sense in general makes me happy. But if you wanna add a little flair and Sense 3.0-ness, Check this app out. It changes the lock screen and actually works VERY well.

they have a free one too if you want to try it out before hand, but its barely customizable.

If we get anything, it will be a stripped down version of it. There definitely won't be any 3D animations because I read that they are too resource intense. I think the best we'd get is the widget capable lockscreen, which would be nice but i won't lose any sleep over it.

Right now I'd be happy if they'd just make htcsense.com available, especially since Verizon isn't going to have different skins available. But they want to lock down the wallpapers, ringtones, & locate/wipe function.

The stupid thing is all of those are available in the market or from third party sources, so I don't see why they can't let HTC's version be made available. Hell, the HTC Inspire has htcsense.com available, and this from the carrier that wouldn't let you sideload apps previously!

If you want a lockscreen you can add widgets to don't wait for a sense update, instead have a look at WidgetLocker. I use it and currently use SMS and Gmail counters, weather, last call, battery % and JuiceDefender widgets.

I received two inc2 in the last 5 days (replacements for camera dust issue) and they both had GB ON THEM.
