    Makes sense. HTC makes the phone already.

    Sense UI is part of what Makes HTC phones superior, in many cases. This is especially true for WinMo phones (whose UI is awful, especially without Sense).

    I won't change from Sense UI to any other, even with it being slower. The N1 will love Sense UI.

    Perhaps the Incredible, or something else, will be our version of the N1. If it's a phone labeled HTC, I'm sure it will have SenseUI.

    And I will be excited about said phone.

    No, it won't. it was a typo on the website and has since been fixed.

    It will still be available only from Google, with no Sense.

    As for the Incredible, it will no longer sport the red/orange back, but will be matte black instead.

    I would still take a Verizon N1 over an Eris anyday (and I love my Eris) it's just a better phone. With or without Sense, if sense is that important to you , you can root the N1 and get Sense on it and I'm guessing since the Tmobile N1 was rooted before it was even officially released that it will be a quick one to root especially with no sense.
    Plus on the N1 you get 6 screens as it is and it looks great I've used my friends N1 a few times and it is just a gorgeous piece of mobile technology.

    First, having Sense on or off the phone has NO bearing on being able to root it or not. Second, a vendor isn't likely to leave an exploit open especially when it's publicly known as being used to gain root access to the phone.

    If it had sense it probably would have changed my mind about wanting it for my next phone. I love my eris and its form factor but am seriously frustrated with the whole adapting 2.1 to work with sense delay. I am planning on getting as close to the eris as I can but minus the sense ui as it is not that important to me and hopefully I will get root ability and thus a leaner cleaner running device.

    I'm leaning towards the N1 without Sense, I watched the demo and it seems just fine, actually the dialer looks even better. It's possible the Sense UI might be more of the problem than we realize with our lag and bugs.

    And you still felt it necessary to make another one. :rolleyes:

    Too bad the correction was made yesterday as well.

    Run your phone without it to confirm.

    That may be true but all I know is that both android phones with sense were extremely difficult to root and the Eris is still the only one with no root.

    I'm not a techy person I'm just looking at what I've noticed.

    It's like this:

    The Incredible is like a performance car that blends performance, looks, and luxury.

    The N1 is like a track car which is all performance while sacrificing some practicality.

    In the case of these phones, practicality is just how "user-friendly" it is. The N1 is bare-bone Android which allows it shed some weight, operate faster, and be at the top of the list when it comes to updates.

    The Incredible pampers the user with Sense, which slows down the phone a tad bit, and as a result, has to go through a bit more testing in order to verify that it's stable.

    It all depends, do you want ricer Civic, with only a driver's seat and a ton of bolt-ons, or do you want an M3?

    With Android, I only have experience with the Droid Eris, so obviously, SenseUI is natural to me now. How can I find a video or something of a device that does not have SenseUI so I can see what the major differences would be?

    Here is the N1, just click on the application you want to see and the phone will demo each action for you.

    Maybe I am misunderstanding what you're asking, but you can disable Sense on the Eris and use Home (download Home Switcher from the market).
