While everyone else ranted and raved (or, alternatively, raged) about the Nexus S, the folks over at Android Central were busy getting their hands on a picture of Verizon's upcoming Incredible HD:

It sure is a looker with that oh-so-sexy aluminum body... but we already knew about that. The real news here is that, tucked away in the upper right corner of the notification bar, is a promising 4G icon:

It's not as surprising as it could have been since Jeremiah Nelson spilled the beans yesterday, but it's always nice to see confirmation in the form of device pictures themselves.

As is traditional following the leak of a new ROM dump, developers have already set to work porting the novel Android flavour to other devices. As he did with the Desire HD ROM, XDA-developers' eVil D: has stepped forward to provide a working port of yesterday's HTC Glacier/myTouch 4G ROM to the Nexus One. Cautioning that he "may or may not support this", eVil D: goes on to describe the semi-functional state that the port is currently in:

What works:
Wifi
Radio
Bluetooth

What doesn't work:
camera/camcorder
videos
Wifi UMA calling = bootloop (you've been warned!)

Requirements:
Common Sense (this is a VERY EARLY build)
SDEXT (512mb) partition *Use clockworkmod or RA 1.9.0+

AndroidCentral got the ROM running on their own Nexus One, and their screenshots provide a good insight into the "Espresso" Sense UI of the myTouch 4G itself.

On the one hand, we have the Desire HD. People may call it the EVO 4G for Europe, but it really isn't. Here we have the newly unveiled HTC Gratia. People are calling it the HTC Aria for Europe, and that's exactly what it is. The hardware appears to be identical save for some new colours, which, considering people seem quite fond of the Aria in the USA, is probably a good thing.

Looks like T-Mobile's G2 isn't the only HTC-built Android device having its source code outed today - the Desire Z (better known as the international version of the G2) has just had its source code revealed as well.

We shouldn't expect to see anything too surprising here since the Desire HD, which runs the same new version of Sense UI, has already had its firmware leaked. However, rest assured we'll keep you posted just in case somebody over at xda-developers or the like discovers a gold nugget hidden inside the code.

XDA-Devs forum member JAguirre1231 has put together a theme for ADWLauncher that makes it look pretty similar to the Sense UI launcher found on HTC devices. Unfortunately, at this point only MDPI devices are supported (for those who don't know, MDPI is for lower-resolution phones, while HDPI is for phones such as the EVO, Epic, and Droid series). However, JAguirre says in the thread that he's planning on making an HDPI version as well.

Along with the announcement of the less patriotic versions of the EVO 4G and G2, HTC informed attendees of their London press event today that the Sense UI overlay would be receiving an update - in addition to new cloud services through HTCSense.com.

What kind of new goodies does the updated Sense have in store? We'll break down what we've got so far:

  • Completely new video/photo capture, edit, upload, and share system
  • New video/photo capture effects/distortions
  • Offline maps
  • Car app
  • Updated e-mail app
  • Probably a lot more updates to integrated Sense apps like Friend Stream
  • Presumably, back-end improvement for performance, bugs, etc.

If you're willing to believe a Chinese website by the name of “911sniper,” then you may be excited to hear that HTC is prepping two new Froyo-running handsets with Sense on top, though neither will be “superphones” or very ground-breaking.

The first handset, called the HTC Lexikon, has a 3.8” 480x800 resolution screen with a 5MP camera and an 800 MHz processor and a full QWERTY keyboard. Nothing mind-blowing, but with this and the Samsung Intercept, it’s nice to see 800 MHz becoming the standard for mid-range Android phones.

While its author openly claims the ROM is far from perfect, most Incredible owners would probably be happy to give this new ROM, codenamed Sky Raider, a whirl simply to see what Froyo+Sense feel like on their rare, practically extinct, phones.

While have not yet tested Sky Raider ourselves, the installation should be familiar to most rooted Incredible owners who have flashed a ROM before.

Note: this ROM appears to require a full wipe (system/user data or “factory” reset).
