HTC Bliss software subject of pictures
Just the other day, we showed you some nice and clear pictures of the hardware of the HTC Bliss. The Bliss is the smartphone that is allegedly designed for women and thanks to a Chinese site, we now have pictures of the handset's UI and home screen. The UI appears to be inspired by Sense 3.0 (more on that later), but with some changes like new widgets, a new app drawer and a dock on the bottom of the home page that has a new design.

Is this the UI for the HTC Bliss?

Is this the UI for the HTC Bliss?

There seems to be some question as to whether we are looking here at HTC Sense 3.0 or 3.5 or perhaps just something that would be considered a minor update to Sense 3.0, designed especially for the HTC Bliss. Is there anything especially feminine about the UI as you see it? There is speculation that the unit would come with some special "calming wallpaper" and special apps for shopping and counting calories.

Only a few of the specs have leaked out, such as the installation of Android 2.3 on the device, and a single-core 800MHz processor under the hood. There is some uncertainty about whether or not there will be both a back and front-facing camera on the HTC Bliss. Will a smartphone designed for women make some noise in the market? Other models that have been designed for a specific demographic like the Microsoft Kin 1 and Kin 2, and the HTC Status have not fared so well in the face of competition from high-end devices that have higher-end specs, more features and appeal for everyone.

This phone is gonna suck. It's basically the Wildfire s with girly wallpapers. Could have at least made it pink. That alone would have caused it to sell pretty well. Pink androids=none. Gray/black android=all (except a few half white ones).
