    Is there any way to sort the HTC People Widget other than alphabetically? Or, is there a way to place a person shortcut on the home screen with a larger thumbnail (like the size of the ones in the People widget)?

    Yeah but they are the tiny thumbnails. Any way to get a bigger thumbnail?

    Yes, I totally agree with you that the thumbnails are tiny when making a Contact shortcut, but I think that is built into Sense. I looked for options, but couldn't find any within Sense or in the User Manuel. A 3rd party app may be needed.

    I did a lazy work around regarding order of contacts by putting two People Widgets on a screen to divide up the ones I use most frequently for better scrolling. Also Gestures Search app by Google is awesome for quickly finding a contact...just wish they had a widget instead of shortcut only.
