Leaked video demonstration offers a dynamic look at HTC Sense 3.5
Overall, it’s not a drastic departure from version 3.0 that’s featured on devices like the HTC EVO 3D and Sensation 4G. In fact, it’s a little bit more simplified in layout with its sprinkling of some fancy looking lock screens and transition effects. Furthermore, the other noticeable difference is the omission of the previous launcher bar sitting at the bottom of the homecreen, and instead, we’re presented with two different buttons to access the app tray and phone dialer. Also, we find a new process in configuring the various homescreens available.
All in all, it’s not too much of a dramatic jump, especially considering that the new experience is expected to become available on a wide-array of HTC smartphones consisting of low-end models as well. Equally at the same time, we get to spend a teeny tiny amount of time with the upcoming HTC Bliss.

Sense is my favorite out of all the android UI's

Considering the fact it's still in beta version and some bugs are presented, this version of Sense for mid-lowrange devices is looking pretty smooth and fresh. I guess it needs only 1 GHz single core? I hope so. Or is it going to be a Sense only for Bliss? And the other mid-range phones will going to get slightly different that Bliss's Sense?
I'm a little bit tired from the usual look of Sence 2.1-3.0 - you know, rainbowish wallpaper, big digital clock on top, black dock, etc...
May be the two circles replacing the dock is not the best idea...
I'm pretty sure also, with the XDA support (guys there likes HTCs), there will be a lot of custom ROMs and additional further customization...

This is definitely a work in process. We may see the Sense v. 3.5 sometime next year. In any event, there will be many changes from what is presently leaking out. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the 'leaking' is a hybrid form of focus grouping....
Just my 2 cents-worth.
