HTC’s Sense 3.0 coming only to new handsets

When you’re talking about Android and HTC, it’s almost impossible not to mention the manufacturer’s proprietary user interface, called Sense. Many people believe it’s one of the reasons Android hit it off so well. And if you purchased the HTC EVO Shift, or even the HTC ThunderBolt recently you may think that your device is well-equipped to get any “essential” updates that come along from HTC. For example, HTC’s Sense 3.0 update, which brings with it that nifty new lock screen. Well, apparently that would be inaccurate. According to a tweet from HTC themselves, only new hardware will be able to run the newest version of the software. That means only handsets like the HTC Sensation 4G, HTC EVO 3D and HTC’s Flyer tablet. Bummer for anyone who wanted to keep their HTC devices, or anyone who has to keep their devices for a little bit longer.
