HTC Desire's Sense ROM now running on the Google Nexus One
Undeniably, the Google Nexus One is a wonderful smartphone. It packs many great features and a good-looking user interface. It’s great as a whole, but lacks what some consider to be the best thing that has happened to Android so far - the Sense UI. HTC has greatly personalized the operating system, adding a lot of diversity to the interface and neatly integrating it with social services.

Apparently, someone has decided to fill that gap, by porting the HTC Desire’s UI to their Google Nexus One. Unfortunately, the developer has not yet uploaded the Desire ROM, in order to share it with the whole wide world, but has at least posted a list of the working features. These include hardware stuff like the trackball and key on the front, the proximity, light and G sensors, LED and compass. Other features the dev has managed to run fine are the camera, Flash 10.1 support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. What’s still not working however is the microphone – a very important element no doubt. So, we hope the ROM will become available for all who would like to try it, as soon as this issue gets patched up.
