HTC to Offer Sense UI to Non-Google Branded Phones
HTC has indicated that it and Chunghua (HTC's network partner in Taiwan) will offer customers a free software upgrade for the HTC Magic that will include HTC's homebrewed Sense user interface. HTC may offer a similar upgrade through other carriers that are selling the HTC-branded Magic (not "with Google" Magics or other similar Google-branded devices such as the G1).
