    So is the Nexus One user interface going to be the default interface for all Android 2.1 phones (5 screens, animated backgrounds, etc) or is it an exclusive UI for the Nexus One (ie-Sense UI on some HTC phones)?

    It's a GOOGLE phone with a GOOGLE OS why would they put Sense on it?

    "Here's our brand new GOOGLE phone but we've put HTC's Sense on it because we don't like our own UI" ? :rolleyes:

    OP means eg not ie. He's not saying they're putting Sense on it.

    To my understanding, the UI on the N1 is default Android 2.1 but I could be wrong.

    It's idd just the standard 2.1 :)

    But when the Bravo/ Passion will be released (most likely with Sense) it's only a matter of time before a custom rom will come :)

    Thanks, yes, that's what i was asking. But if this is the "Google Phone" and they are responsible for everything on the inside, it may be a special "brew" of android for the Google branded phone. Of course we have also heard that the "Google phone" will have the "new" Android, and that we haven't seen the "true" Android yet, so maybe this is 2.1. I guess we'll have to wait and see when a "plain jane" 2.1 Android phone other than the Nexus One comes out, or when another phone (Moto Droid perhaps) is officially upgraded to 2.1.

    Arrgh, TOO MANY VARIABLES HERE!!!

    I'd like to believe google will put their own spin of senseUI on their phone. Simply because it's theirs doesn't preclude them from modifying from the "default" OS.

    See, that's why I asked the question. That was my thinking exactly. I guess we'll just have to WAIT till another true 2.1 phone is seen in the wild.

    This is the new HTC Rosie...

    http://htcpedia.com/news/570.html

    I hope there is a hybrid created between the Rosie & Nexus...

    This Rosie might only be for the non SnapDragon HTC phones... Not sure.. Cause it doesn't seem to take advantage of some of the new features on the Nexus One UI... :cool:

    Yea, I saw those today. If that's where HTC Sense UI is heading, count me out. Like most comments I read in the posts, I don't like the bubbles either. Blech!

    Very unlikely in the Nexus One as it will not be Branded HTC.

    Those people who think Nexus1 will somehow be inferior to htc devices because it lacks SenseUI are missing one important point. Google wants N1 to demonstrate what Android is capable of when it is ideally integrated with applications and hardware. Google wants/needs to show the OS at its very best in this device if it has any chance of being the "iPhone-killer" Google is hoping it to be.
    It's entirely likely that it will run smoother and look better than any previous version of the OS we've seen - senseUI or not - and Google certainly has had the time and resources to do it.

    Having the droid, i really like vanilla android. don't hate me, but sense isn't all that to me. i think i would get bored and disable anyways.
    -one other major advantage would be getting updates faster, not having to wait for htc to integrate it with sense.

    looks like 2.1 vanilla android will please me even more. bring it

    depends on how well you can exploit an opportunity.

    It's entirely possible $3.5k is a smokin' deal.

    If this "Nexus One Rom" that comes with the Nexus one is the default Android 2.1 ROM, does that mean when my Sprint Hero gets the 2.1 update, I can just turn off SenseUI to get Nexus One's ROM?

    2.1 is native for Android. Any phone getting 2.1 will have the same. From my understanding, only Google Experience phones will be getting 2.1 as long as their CPU can handle it, e.g. DROID. HTC phones with Sense will not be getting this OS. For that matter, Sense hasn't even been properly mated to 2.1. HTC has been working on getting Sense mated to 2.0.

    OS 2.1 was meant for pure Google Experience phones. Likely any other HTC phone, already running Sense will get Sense mated to 2.0 which is what those screenshots were. And yes, it's very iPhone-ish, especially the way you add apps to the screen, where the icon bubbles move around and stuff.

    From the same guy who in one post has Verizon first getting an unlocked Nexus One (which made no sense) to getting a locked one.
    Yeah they haven't mated Sense with 2.1, this rom is just a figment of someone's imagination HTC Hero gets a leaked Android 2.1 ROM with Sense -- Engadget.
    Of course this also must be why Sprint is giving its Hero a 2.1 upgrade Sprint’s skipping Android 2.0 and giving the HTC Hero and Samsung Moment 2.1 | Google Android Blog.
    You seriously need to research before you post.
