HTC Sense 3.0 will only support Sensation, EVO 3D, Flyer and newer devices; older hardware left behind

Unfortunate news for anyone who saw HTC’s Sense 3.0 UI and started dreaming about seeing it on their Desire HD, Incredible S or any other handset that doesn’t ship with it preloaded. HTC has said that because of the hardware requirements of the fancier new Android skin, only the dual-core Sensation 4Gand EVO 3D smartphones and the 1.5GHz Flyer tablet will be benefiting from it for now. The company’s expected to introduce more tablets in the summer and its inevitable march forward with smartphones will continue, but Sense 3.0 — and those delectable multifunctional lock screens — will remain the exclusive privilege of its highest-end devices.

Update: Those older devices may be missing the boat, but they will at least get a set of floaties. HTC left a message on Twitter that the company is “working to incorporate other aspects” of Sense 3.0 that will come to older devices. Hopefully this includes that flash new weather app.
